I can't believe I forgot!!!!

I'm going to blame this one on "holiday brain!" My bud, Barb Schram was last week's Featured Stamper over on Splitcoast. First of all -- what a huge honor! And, second - Barb deserves it big time! She is an amazing stamper! Just look at her gallery HERE! I tell her all the time how her creativity just blows me away!

So, a week ago when the news broke - I didn't walk- I ran down to my stamp room and pulled out some stamps with hopes of CASE-ing THIS beauty! That is the one that popped off the web page for me!

I dug through my flower stamps and picked a Penny Black stamp and a small Impression Obsession saying to create this.....

I grabbed some scraps of fun pinks and purple paper. Grabbed some markers and then colored and stamped my image on a piece of white cardstock. Sponge some pink ink around the edges, mat it up and follow the layout of Barb's card and you're almost done--- The saying was created by stamping on a 1-1/4" circle and matting it on a pink 1-1/2" circle. Add a loopy brad and some sheer polka dot ribbon and you are pretty much good to go!

I did want to make my flowers shimmer so.... I added some Shimmerz! I painted on some pink onto the small pink flowers and some Iced Lavendar onto the purple flowers!

Here is a close up.... It's kind of hard to see in my photo-- but it's there!

And voila.... done!

Hope you are all having a fabulous start to your week! I'll see ya back here soon!
