NEW STAMP!

Hmm... there really isn't a whole lot better than new stamps... maybe a new laptop - but that will not be happening until MAYBE Christmas. Maybe. So, until then, stamps it is!

Lisa let me order with her and I got this GORGEOUS new Whiff of Joy stamp. (Go shop here.) I had to participate in the WOJ challenge this week. Check the challenge blog HERE.

It was another awesome sketch from Donalda this week. Also, there is a possibility for winning a spot as a GUEST DESIGNER on this team. Would that be THE COOLEST or what? !

I used papers from DCWV sweets stack. I cut out my sweet new image with a nestie, then since I used the largest nestie, I used a mocha SHIMMERZ to paint some sparkly love around the edge of the image for a fake mat. I inked the edge of the crazy patterned paper to set it apart. I used a fat green ribbon that I scavenged off of a cloth bag that came as "gift wrapping" on a Christmas gift last year. It is so fun to scavenge wonderful beautiful and oh so useful stuff! Flowers are primas, buttons are from American Craft, I used a little floss/embroidery thread to tie off the buttons. And the sweet sweet girl is colored with copics.

I believe those are all the pertinent details. As for me, I'm making a new resolution to get back into my crafting. I've had a slump for the past few weeks where I didn't make something every day and I just didn't feel right. I made a few things this weekend and I also did some reorganization of the goodies... I feel so much better when I make stuff every day -- so I guess it is my birthday resolution not to get discouraged and slack off.

ENJOY!
