Happy Monday

I hope everyone is having a great day and had a great weekend! It has been beautiful here. The sun has been shining and I have found it very hard to stay inside. According to Puxatawny Phil we aren't finished with winter yet, so when you get these kind of days, it's best to enjoy them. The down side to the nice weather is that I've done very little stamping. I did finally sit down and stamp earlier this evening, though. I needed to get some goodies and a card together to send to my secret sistah for the big reveal. It has been a fun month and I can't believe how fast it went. I loved this stamped image (Ronna Farrer) and color combo so much that I also stamped a card for the Verve Visual guest designer challenge. My motto is nothing ventured, nothing gained, so I am going to go for it! Can't hurt, right?

Here is the card that I am entering for the challenge. I love all the sparkle, don't you? I found this stamp set at HL and just fell in love with it. I wanted to take a break from all the red and pink Valentines so I went with purples this time. I'm not sure of the DP. It's some that I picked up a while back. The heart is heat embossed with UTEE and popped up. The jewels are Marcella K. The CS is Eggplant (SU). Those little corner stamps are SU retired. I've had them for about 7 years now. I am such a hoarder.

Stamps: Hearts and stars (Ronna Farrer)
Paper: Eggplant, DP?
Ink: Eggplant, Versamark
Accessories: Ribbon, Jewels, Purple Stickles, UTEE
Tools: Piercer, Corner Punch, Word Window Punch, Sponge

This one's for my secret blogging sistah. I wonder who she is???? Hmmmmm????

Stamps: Heart and stars
Paper: White, Eggplant, DP?
Inks: Eggplant
Accessories: Primas, Brads, Ribbon, Jewels, UTEE, Versamarker.
Tools: Slot Punch

That's it for me today! I'm gonna go check out what everyone else has been up to! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
