RIP Michael and a challenge for you
Sometimes I wonder if he struggled as an adult, because he was never allowed to be a child. I hope that he is at peace now and that all of his demons have been put to rest.
So here is another thought...I am throwing out a Michael Jackson challenge to you all. Make a card or a project inspired by The King of Pop. Link it here and use keyword RIPMJ when uploading to on line galleries.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.
Time for another Etsy Inspired Challenge-EIC42

I hear ice cream is good for a Hip Hop Hangover!
The images are from Unity's June KOTM. I used some certainly celery twill ribbon at the top. I used my nesties and SU oval punches. I colored the image with my prisma's and blended with OMS. I added some crystal effects and glitter on my ice cream cone. This was for Jeanne's pink and green Hip Hop challenge. I love those colors together! I won a free stamp set for my card for this challenge! YAY! This is why everyone should participate in HIP HOP! Unity is so generous with their give aways!
Hope you have a fabulous Friday!

MSB ceLebRate gal!
The gal is from MSB (Modern Sugar Blvd.). I thought she was super cute. I paper pieced her shirt with DSP from SU's retired Jersey shore collection. The white card base is paper pierced around the edge and so is the orange DSP square. I colored her with prisma pencils and blended wit OMS. The sentiment is from Unity and I colored the individual letters with my SU markers.
Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

A spot of tea, for your Hip Hop Hangover!
Hello! Happy Hip Hop Hangover! I made this card for the WT223, to use text on our card, and I also tried Jen Del Muro's pizza box tutorial on SCS. These little boxes are so quick and easy to make! You should try one!

Ahoy from Lani!
Here is another new release from The Digi Shack! Isn't she gorgeous? They have several other patriotic Lani's just in time for July 4th! I also made this for the color challenge on SCS-use baja breeze, ruby red and white. I have no clue who makes this DP, but I am thinking it is Cosmo Cricket. The sentiment is from SU's retired Ahoy Matey set.
Thanks for all of the well wishes! I am feeling MUCH better! I am going to try to get caught up on visiting blogs tonight!

paper-white, black Dp Urban Prairie
scallop oval punch, bling, prisma pencils, OMS for blending and black satin ribbon.
Hello! Sorry I have been MIA the past couple of days. I have worked the past two nights at the hospital and had no babysitter! YIKES! My butt is dragging! This week's challenge at The Digi Shack is a sketch. I used an image that will be released on the 15th! The new Lani images are just sooooooo darn cute! You will love them! I don't know if you can see or not, but I used some tiny rhinestones for her earrings and her ring. Sorry for the yucky photo but it has been overcast here the past few days. If you play along use keyword TDSC09 in the gallery. Also leave us a link to your card at The Digi Shack in the challenge post!
Have a great day!

A Clean And Simple Thank You!
This also is for today's CAS challenge on SCS. We were to use some sort of coral color and kraft. I pulled out my groovy guava and my slim vase stamp from UNITY. The sentiment is from PTI, and the ribbon is May Arts.
The matching gift bag is a mini brown lunch sack that I used my oval punch to make a cut out at the top. I tied a ribbon at the top and stamped the slim vase image on both sides of the bag. I will fill it up with some candy.
Thanks for stopping by!

Etsy Inspired 39-Ribbon, flowers and tutus...oh my!
Originally, I picked the bow below for my inspiration. I love chocolate and that shade of blue together. When I started making this card for the one layer card (OLC) challenge on SCS today, I ended up changing the chocolate to black!
I used a scrap of paper that I had used to cut a scallop rectangle nestie as a template and then sponged soft sky and baja breeze inside. I stamped the flowers in black and my sentiment in black and tied some satin ribbon at the top! EASY PEASY!
This reverse masking technique is really easy, and you can use any size or shape. I like using it for one layer cards to jazz them up a bit and create the illusion of another layer.
If you participate in the challenge use keyword EIC39 when uploading to online galleries. Also link you card HERE for a chance to win a prize! :) Check out the other DT members creations. The links to their galleries are on my side bar------->
Have a great weekend!

This stamp is from the May KOTM. The base and scallop edge are black, and the DP is from BG's Urban Prairie collection. I added some pretty in pink taffetta ribbon and some bling. The image is stamped on Pink Pirouette with tuxedo black memento ink.
A nice clean layout for a gorgeous image and sentiment!
