All Sparkles with Somewhere to Go!

Well, I just have TOO much going on this weekend!

First up, I have to tell you about the Pinque Peacock Blog Hop.


It's happening all weekend (starting NOW) thru Sunday, featuring different projects every day.
You really need to take a peek.

It's worth $15.00 in goods if you participate all weekend long!


Start on Pinque Peacock blog today and read all about it!

Come back here on Sunday!  I'll have a post as part of Pinque Peacock's blog hop!

I KNOW....I'm seriously demanding (ask my husband).

OH, that reminds me!

My next thing to show you is a card to my sweet man...


Yes!
Isn't it saltry!

I had so much fun making this card (after I fretted with my print driver/InDesign issues)
BUTTTTT......

It's fun for a few reasons:

  1. I learned un peu about InDesign and print (per meine Fotografie)
  2. Those aren't my nails, but I fantasized that they were!
  3. I am hiding it for my dear husband.  He'll find it oh so unexpectantly.
  4. It uses some fab ribbon from 3GirlJam!
  5. I am using some stamps from a company I haven't used before (the lips) and I think they are so fun. (and you'll more about them soon!)
  6. It'll be the precursor to a date!  I am going to take him out....just for fun...cuz after meeting up  with our 2nd daughter and her beau last weekend, I decided that we should go out more often...and I'm gonna take him out!
Last Update is my FWF feature.  (like I said....too much going on)


Okay, so there!  Who knew I had this much to smile about.

Go Make Something Beautiful!

I get such a kick out of your posts, Rebecca! Yes, indeed your card is saltry and lovely. I'm sure the Mr. will be thrilled with that one.

I'm a FwF fan too and have been admiring your work there as well! Cute, super cute card this week!

Have a great weekend, can't wait to pop back over to see what you've got in store for the Hop!

Miwa said…
Great cards! I especially love the splashes of color (the harlequin stamps).

That's one hot card for your husb! Not to mention a fine precursor to a date night. As to your Unity card... Totally terrific! I love the partially-pieced diamonds in the background. (What brand of kraft is your card base?)

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Today I'm participating in a really fun hop!  We're celebrating my friend, Julie's, 2nd anniversary blogging.  We all met through our mutual love for crafting.  It's been such a great two years admiring each other's work, sharing ideas, and supporting each other in our artsy endeavors.
If you want to see the entire hop, start at Julie's blog

There are LOTS of prizes that have been donated by some wonderful companies!  (see Julie's blog for all the details). Just leave a comment on each blog for a chance to win one of MANY prizes. 
I'm ready for a great weekend.   I'm counting down the days until Spring. AND taking Monday and Tuesday OFF just because!

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
