Hey all! How is, or should I say WAS, your weekend!! It's a WEE bit late here, on this Sunday night!! I sat down to clean up my craft area a bit? AND......found myself stamping!!! Surprise, right? Haha!! What can I say......I JUST can't help it!! I saw my MARKET STREET STAMPS and they were calling to me!! SO.......I decided I would see if I could join the BLOCK PARTY!! What is that you ask?? Oh my, you HAVE to check it out!! Look at this!!

Now, trust me! After reading this?? Given my LOVE of MARKET STREET STAMPS?? He-llo!! It was a NO brainer!! is MY little creation for this month's MSS BLOCK PAR-TAY!! Woohoo!! Hope you like! For, I SURE had fun creating it!! I used my COOL, new pre-made Kraft cards and envies!! I stamped the MSS VINTAGE MUSIC background stamp with Memento Cocoa and distressed the edges with the same. After this was done, I set it aside to stamp and color my guitar image from the MSS HIPPIE CHIC set! I LOVE this set, did I mention that? I used my Copics to color her in and even outlined it a bit with the same colors, along with texturizing it a bit with my "0" colorless blender!! Which, by the way, is ANOTHER fave of mine! I used my PINK Atyou Spica pen to highlight the dots and swirls on the guitar! OK, I cut out the guitar with my oval Spellbinders and distressed the edges with my Memento Cocoa. After all this was prepped, I cut out 2 DIFF pieces of DCWV Playground DSP! and layered them onto my Kraft base;took some pink sorbet Twinery Twine, distressed it a bit, and wrapped it around everything!! Nothing finishes a project like TWINE!!! At this point? All I needed was a sentiment! Well, this called for one from the MSS SIMPLE JOYS set!! I stamped it in the same Memento ink and cut it out with my Spellbinders Pennant dies. To complete my creation I added the sentiment and popped up the guitar image! VOILA!! My BLOCK PARTY creation!!
Thanks SO much for checking in with me tonight!! Hope you have a WONDERFUL week and I will see you next time!! ENJOY LIFE!!
