Sparkle Creations 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps 3rd  Anniversary Hop! Not only are we here to help Sparkle celebrate 3 years of SCRS, but we are also officially releasing 4 new SCRS images this month — Paris Lucy,  London Charlotte, New York Josh, and Seattle Chloe. They are ALL available in the store NOW!

We have assembled an all-star lineup consisting of our Current Design Team, DT Alumni and Guest Designers. Click on all the links below to participate in our anniversary blog hop!

I can not believe it has already been 3 years since Sparkle launched SCRS and I am thrilled to help her celebrate!  I was torn as to which image to use for the hop today, I adore Lucy (I even named our new cat Lucy!), but Seattle Chloe has a special place in my heart and I had to use her.  It totally made me think of Sparkle, Suzanne, Thanh, Aileen and I getting together for our crafty shopping weekends with LOTS of coffee from Starbucks!  It also reminded me of when I took the advanced Copic certification class with Sparkle we went to Starbucks 4 times in one day!  Yes, we love our coffee!

Ribbon Carousel Challenge #80 ~ Showers & Flowers

Please scroll down for my Your Next Stamp, Tasty Tuesday Sneak Peek card!

RCC 80

Hello again friends!  It is the final week for this month’s Showers and Flowers challenge over at the Ribbon Carousel!

For my card today I used both flowers and showers!  I stamped Rainy Day Ruby (from Sparkle Creations) onto Copic X-Press It and colored her with Copic markers, I also added a little Glossy Accents to the rain drops and puddle for more texture. I finished off the card layering a couple of Prima flowers and adding a bit of lace.

A Few Favorites from 2012

Hello everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your families and friends, I know we did.  Even with all the running around and holiday stress it was good and everyone had fun.

I was looking back over all my cards from this past year and picked out a few of my faves, they are in no particular order (I am not that organized this year!) but they are all cards that I loved making, with stamps from my favorite companies, and still love looking at.  I hope you enjoy them too!

If you have any questions about the cards, just let me know and I will let you know what was used.

I have to work today, 12 -8 and then plan on having a quiet New Years with Lee and the boy’s.  As you know I haven’t stamped much in the last couple of  months (I will explain all of that soon), maybe I will get up the energy to do a little bit this evening.

Thank you for all the kind comments and support over the last year, I really do appreciate it and love all of the amazing people who I have met through this fun hobby.  I hope you all have a wonderful and safe New Year’s.  Here’s to 2013!!!
