Kahikatea

Well how about that - it is Tuesday again. Before you know it, it will be the weekend again. Time must really fly while you are having fun. I have to share with you all some good news. A bunch of really good things happened to me yesterday. I tell you, my husband must have shared that lucky horse shoe with me (he is always lucky).

First off, I won not once, not twice, but THREE times on the Bunny Hop at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I don't know what exactly I have won yet, but trust me, I have checked my email a billion times since I have won LOL (seriously). Thanks so much to the DT at SSW!!

Secondly, I received an email from Sally-Ann, asking if she could do a link to some of my cards. She designs my favorite digi-stamps at DigiStamp Boutique. I am officially on the DigiStamp Boutique Blog for 3 days!! (that's me 2nd on the customer list) ;) Thanks bunches Sally-Ann!

Thirdly, sshhhhhhh - it is a surprise. I will tell you later.

Okay, I think that is it... on to:

Tonight's Challenges: 1. The Corrosive Challenge would like to see paper piecing (which is one of my new favorite techniques):

I used some fuchsia cardstock, dipped it in embossing ink and embossed it. Isn't her dress fancy-schmancy?

2. The Pink Elephant has a really fun sketch this week:




I knew right away that I wanted a bright and fun card with this sketch:







Card Ingredients: K&Co Citronella paper; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; DigiStamp Boutique Libby Fairy image; Copics; Craft Smart Black ink; Martha Stewart embossing ink; Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder; Martha Stewart Swan flocking powder; Primas; Dress It Up and random buttons; American Crafts and Celebrate It ribbons, twine.

Happy Tuesday! See you all later!!

Hi Deanne! Oh my gosh, this is SO cute! I love her sparkly dress. Not sure why but I'm not getting your blog updates anymore. That's why I haven't been over to chat with you...I thought you just weren't posting much! GRRR I'm going to check my following status and see if something is messed up there. Otherwise, I'll just stalk you on my own, without the help of blogger. :)
