Dream Big!

Hi all.. I'm back this Thursday with another peek into some of Impression Obsession's NEW IMAGES!  Each day, different IO team members will be showcasing some IO's brand new designs and just like I've been telling you all week -- you could WIN a $25 gift certificate to spend on some of these new stamps! To be eligible to win all you need to do is leave a comment on every team member's sneak peek post and the IO blog each day this week! Just that simple! Click HERE for the full link list and to get started!

Want to see my fun and spunky creation today?

Gail Green is one of the relatively new artists to IO and when I saw this flamingo, I just thought it was too fun. I colored it with Copic Markers (R00, R01, R11, R12, R14, YR01, C01, C03, C05, RV32, RV34). I also accented the flowers with a little white gel pen. Add a punched border, some pink decorative paper (BasicGrey), some melon colored ribbon, some bling and a fun new layered sentiment called Dream Big, and.... done!


You can see all of the new images by clicking HERE. If you want a chance to win some, however, don't forget to start at the IO blog, hop and comment on all the DT members posting each day this week!


Have fun and happy hopping! I'll see ya back here tomorrow!

That's one beauty! Dream big may include a new trend in Bozeman Christmas stroll where the roasted turkey leg is king of sidewalk treats! Following the State of the State address last night, this is a card fit for Gov. Schweitzer to encourage all departments to go for a raise after two years of frozen wages!! They have earned it according to the efficiency earnings reported 'in the bank'.
Or! depending on legislation, could this be the montra of college students facing tuition changes? Stay tuned. This card is multifaceted after last night's speech. Meantime, enjoy all the lovely color, gloriously amusing face for all seasons on that statement making bedecked bird, and fine embellishments meant to brighten anyone's day. Does this mean moving in is nearly complete?
Hope so! This weather break has been wonderful. Maybe, just maybe, that's why this bird is so perky!
Keep Looking UP!

Like how you minimalized your accents and let the bird and dream big stand out. Really like the punched trim. And, of course, it's pink AND summery, so I'm a happy gawker.
