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!!

Here's what you have to do:

  • Create a new project with MSS stamps! It can be anything (cards, layouts, altered items, etc.)- be creative and have FUN!
  • Link your project below by Sunday, January 29th at 11:59 PM Central Time
  • Note: Your creations for this contest will not be considered for the Cream of the Crop contest. Each MSS contest or challenge requires a separate, unique entry to be eligible to win!

Here's what you could win!
  • One randomly selected participant will win an awesome prize package full of yummy stamps & accessories!
  • ONE show stoppin' paper crafter will be asked to join us for a Guest Design spot for the following month! (This months winer will be the Guest Designer for the month of March!)

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!!

Happy Tuesday friends!! How are you? We are having an overcast day here today! Although it is a BIT grey? It is on the warmer side!! SO? I'll take it!! Haha!
I have been working on my craft area here lately. Trying to get it BETTER organized? If there is such a thing! In doing this, I created a drawer for images that I have colored already AND those that I have colored along, with coordinated papers already! Normally it is the latter, for if you kow me? You know that I ALWAYS, ok 95% of the time, pick my papers out FIRST before I even start coloring!! Anyhoo, I decided to pull from that drawer today! I wanted to create a little something? AND? with my NEW camera!! Haha!! What a GREAT combonation, huh?
Well, when you have these things in mind, you should have a sketch to go with your creativity!! Right?? Right!! I mean......a sketch is JUST a guide, isn't it?? I perused the internet and here is what I found!! It was DEF fun to play along!! You can CLICK on the sketch to play along too!!

Of course, here is MY take on this CUTE sketch!! WITH my new camera, OUTSIDE!!

I used the SUPER, groovy HIPPIE CHIC set from MARKET STREET STAMPS!! This set is WAY cool and SO versatile!! I combined my image with the MSS sentiment set called, SIMPLE JOYS! I LOVE this set!! My papers are from DCWV and the cardstock is Cocoa from PTI! I used Spellbinders Ovals to cut out my image and a MS grass punch to do my grass. I finished this off with some of my FAVE twine, in cappuccino, from THE TWINERY!! Hope you like and hope to see you tomorrow!! Thanks SO much for stopping by and have an AWESOME night! Until next time..................ENJOY LIFE!!

I had bought something from a girlie on SCS? In the NICE little package was an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of white cardstock, folded in half, in there with it! This cardstock? Boy was it NICE!! It was.....heavy, like I could use it for a card base?? AND? That is exactly what I did!! I am LIKING it!! A LOT!! I contacted the LOVELY lady I got my package from and she told me it was in fact, Papertrey Ink white!! Really?? WOW!! Now, you must understand, I use Georgia Pacific white for my Copic coloring and have NEVER experienced this cardstock before!! I was DEF pleasantly surprised!!! Let me just tell you!!
Ok,ok.....I am getting carried away! Anyhoo.........I LOVE my new Paper Smooches set!! It is called CHUBBY CHUMS?? is TOO Darn sweet!! I picked out some DSP to go with my set and ended up with the NERDY BIRD collection from Sassafras? know me and the whole' "matchy-matchy" thing!! That is why I ALWAYS choose my DSP first, so my colors are JUST right!! Haha!! SICK......right?? After my image was colored? It was off to the internet and DAILY DARE, to find a sketch! Here is what I ended up doing!! let me know what you think!!

You all should play along too!! It was fun!! Alrighty! ALL the details are below!! LOTS to do yet for tomorrow, as I am a night owl, this is the BEST time!!
