Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsorships

Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring three fabulous challenge blogs right now, and I am here to tell you about them! I made a card that incorporates all three of them AND uses a Tickled Pink Stamps image. When Debbie, our fabulous TSP sponsorship coordinator asked for assistance, I happily volunteered to represent the Pinkettes. Isn't she adorable? This is Pippa. She's a little shy and a lot sweet. Those flowers are for you for your birthday, but she's embarrassed by the fuss you're making. They're just flowers, after all, jeesh! lol Lil Pinkette Pippa can be found in the Tickled Pink Stamps store, along with her friends the Lil Lolitas and Lil Lads, the Pink Pets, and Cherrie.

Now, on the the sponsorships! The first is the deconstructed sketch #13. I am in love with these and have been playing along for a few weeks now anyway so I jumped at the chance to work with this layout. The other two challenges are Bearly Mine Challenges (Charm the Spots off of You) and Card Makin' Mamas (Birthday).

I have used two designer papers with spots plus a Cuttlebug embossing folder. And my Prima rose has dots on it as well. I also stamped some spots on the edges of my image panel in Orchid Opulence classic ink by Stampin' Up. So I think I have the spots challenge covered. lol I made it a birthday card by incorporating a new $1 "Happy Halloween" banner stamp I bought the other day. I just stamped the "Happy" and cut out the flags then used part of a sentiment from the My Favorite Thing's Who's That Birthday Girl set to finish the birthday greeting.

I am off today so I hope to do a little crafting. Maybe. lol It is supposed to be gorgeous out and it is a rare ME day! Most of the time I am off because my small man is sick or day care is closed or the weather is inclement or we are going somewhere (like our trip to the zoo), but today, after a morning meeting, my son goes with his father, leaving me with 24 hours plus of "off duty" time. I feel a little guilty being off from work and not having him stay with me, but hey, even mommas need time off sometimes too! Besides, not a day has passed since he was born that I haven't seen him. Honestly, I'm not sure I like the idea, though I'm sure it's coming. For now, I'll enjoy a bit of down time then happily greet him on Saturday with hugs and kisses while he squirms and swats at me, giggling and saying "Go!" Too cute!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card (and for tolerating my ramblings!). Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

Awwwww, what a cute image, no wonder you chose it! I love how you've combined two stamps to get the right sentiment, I always struggle with that and convince myself I need another stamp set, perhaps I need to have a closer look in my stamp box! Thanks for sharing this with us at Card Makin' Mamas, we loved working with the TPS stamps!
