Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #28 - Cute and add a Butterfly



Well, I'm back with post #2 for the day! I am swamped with crafting the next few days! I'm not sure how I'm going to fit it all in, but somehow I always manage it seems. If only I didn't have to work... But I know I'm lucky to have my job with the state of the economy! So short of winning the lottery (which I almost never play) or receiving a huge inheritance from some long lost relative (which I'm pretty sure won't happen), I need to work to support my crafting addiction! lol

Enough wishing I were independently wealthy (don't we all?).... Here is my card for this week's Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge. The theme is "cute and add a butterfly". So I added two (punched ones ala Martha Stewart) plus, though you'd never know it since you can't see it now with all my embellies piled on top of it, there are butterflies on 2 of my designer papers. The lovely creature perched on the bird cage is the new Lil Little Lolita Kellita! Isn't she precious? She is one of six new images from the Lil Little collection now available at Tickled Pink Stamps! There is even a witty digital sentiment set from the talented Cheri to go along with them! I prefer digi so I have to wait until Digi Days begin on the 15th (which is actually today at 10am for me since TPS is located in Australia). So, okay, I need to wait for pay day on the 15th. How's that?

Kellita is colored with Copics and popped up on 3D dots over the Tim Holtz Caged Bird die cut. I have had this months and this is the first time I've used it. When I saw the Kellita image I thought they would be perfect together!

My sketch is from the brand new, just launched Pink {INK} Sketch Challenge and I'm very excited about this! Sketches are my favorite kind of challenge and to know that this one is being run by the amazing {PINK} ladies gives me goosebumps! There will be a new sketch every fortnight. You still have a little less than a week to play along with this one.

Now on to my big news.... I just found out last night that I have been asked to stay on at Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges as a designer team member for an additional six month term!!! I am thrilled, and in fact I even did a happy dance last night when Kellie e-mailed me with the news! I can't begin to tell you how it feels be included with this wonderful, talented group! So you will be seeing more Lolitas and Lads as well as Pinkettes and who wouldn't be tickled pink about that?!

I hope you have enjoyed today's creations and that you are having a fantastic week! Thanks for stopping by and if you feel like leaving some love on my blog, I thank you in advance. (Yes, I will shamelessly beg for attention! lol) Enjoy your day!
