Showcasing Kay!!

Last month Stamping Vacation did a HUGE blog hop and Kay won a stamp set from Practicing Creativity on my blog. Well, she was kind enough to e-mail me that she had used my tutorial for rosettes which you can find HERE!

This was her first time making a rosette and I was STUNNED at how awesome her project looked!!

Glitterbabe Challenge

Image is from Glitterbabe

I just LOVE this image....isn't it hilarious? Colored with my Copics and did a little faux stitching to make it stand out more. Then popped it on a nestie die cut to act as a frame for the image. I just love the colors in this paper and as a final touch I put a glitter dot in each corner. I really wanted this funny image to stand out so I kept the embellishments simple. Hope you like it!

To join in the challenge for this week click HERE! The theme is Halloween! Don't forget to use something sparkly!! You don't have to use a Glitterbabe image to enter but we would LOVE it if you did and Stef has some great freebies located HERE!
You can also purchase images HERE! Her prices are sooooooo reasonable you could get several and still not break the bank! Have fun and hope to see you over there!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
CPS - Sketch (flipped)

Spoke too soon.....

Well, the gremlins are still here attacking my computer! I can't open any other blogs....all I get is a black screen!!! SOOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!

I hope to be able to post a DT card here for the Build A Sketch Challenge over at Stamping Vacation tomorrow but if it is late you will know why!! I also can't click on anything in my blogroll without turning my entire computer to a black screen and locking things up so I do apologize if I am not able to leave you comments....I will be back as soon as I can vanquish these demons....I think I have watched too much of the show "Charmed!" LOL!
