Thanks!

** Don't forget to enter my BIG giveaway. See side bar for details.

Happy Card Making Day!! So what are your plans for today?

Today's thanks card is dedicated to all of you who read my blog regularly, never fail to leave a comment and have been ever so supportive with all my little ventures here at this blog. Thank you so much!

So I have a lot of good things to share with you all today.

First up, I made it to the Prickley Pear Stamps Design Team . I am so excited to be on my first ever manufacturing company design team. You all know how I love stamps and they have so many wonderful ones. I just can't wait to get started. I decided to apply for the post when so many of you suggested that I should. Thanks a ton for enabling me! I look forward to a whole year of inking :) And yes the team is being formally introduced today on the PPRS Blog. I would love for you to go see :)
 
Second up, I was selected to be a Honorable Gnome at Lawnscaping Challenges. Cool...HUH! :D So happy!


And here is today's card
Supplies: cardstock: Elle Erre Fabriano!; stamps: Hero Arts(Speckled Ornaments, Live & Laugh),  ink: Jenni Bowlin(Brown Sugar), Distress Inks(Barn Door, Walnut Stain, Shabby Shutters);  embellishment: Pearls (Kaisercraft )

I attempted Piali's Stamp Block Challenge at Yvonne's Blog with my own little twist. Instead of stamping the block directly with distress inks, I misted them with water first and tada...a super cool background :)
And the walnut stain ink bleeding into the shabby shutter ink was a happy accident and I really like it.
Also entering this for Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes.

Hope you like it! Thanks for visiting!

  16. another beauty! i loveeee this. I SOOO wish Feb arrives soon and I will get my inks! Hey, should i get reinkers for the distress inks? And suggest some good inks both for stamping and distressing. Can I use pigment ink for distressing (stamp pad one not queues)?
