It's already been a good day! LOL!!

Can you believe it?!?!? I'm a featured artist on Elaine's Blog!!!!! Go check her blog out - she asked me some great questions, and it's a REALLY nice post. :) I'm SO flattered - thanks, Elaine! :)

Elaine wrote and asked me how I could do so many posts after last week's blog tour - wasn't I too tired? LOL!!! When I design SO MANY projects, like I have this week, I GOTTA show them off to SOMEONE, right? :D Plus, I had Monday's blog post already written when we did the tour; since I knew what I wanted to show off, AND needed to explain about the blog candy, it was easy. Gave me another day off, too! LOL! I need to do more of the advanced blogging.... :D

OK, so for SOME odd reason the SURPRISE FRIENDSHIP BOX link yesterday didn't work. :/ Try this, and let me know if you found it. If not, leave me your email address and I'll try sending you the direct link - it'll open Adobe Reader on your computer... CLICK HERE, and then click on the SECOND link, where it says SURPRISE FRIENDSHIP BOX.

I'm having computer problems today, so I want to get this out to you ASAP. So, on with the show!

This first card is the third from the Advanced Techniques class the other night. It's called Painted Pigments, and I love the brightness of it! :D If you want to know how to do it, however, you'll need to GO HERE and subscribe! It's worth the money!

Card stock: Whisper White, Basic Black

Inks: Versamark, Summer Sun, Cameo Coral, and Ruby Red pigment

Stamp set: Inspired by Nature

Accessories: I CAN'T TELL YOU! :)

But don't you just love the colors, and the way the silhouette pops?

THIS ONE is for tonight's Quick Card class; I designed it for a challenge at Late Night Stampers - a great group for both demos and non, if you're interested let me know! - but it's so easy, and so pretty, that I had to encorporate it into tonight's class. I know Mary won't mind seeing it before she does it. :D We'll also be using Chocolate Chip taffeta instead of the Kraft you see here.... DON'T MISS ANOTHER CLASS! Click HERE to see my schedule!!!
Card Stocks: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive
Inks: Old Olive, Ruby Red - both Classic and Craft
Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral (What else?? :D), INSIDE - A Little Birthday Cheer
Accessories: Big Shot - YES! I LOVE THAT MACHINE!! :D, Stampin' Up! Exclusive Texturz Plates, clear embossing powder, embossing buddy, heat tool, sponge, kraft taffeta ribbon
OK! I'm off to finish designing for tonight. LOL!!!!! Have a WONDERFUL day, and TAKE THE TIME TO STAMP SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh, and don't forget to enter for the BLOG CANDY HERE!!!! You only have until tomorrow night to enter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
