FABULOUS Twinkling Tuesday: Isn't She Lovely?


Hello All!

Happy Twinkling Tuesday to you! I have to tell you that I'm very excited about today's post. For one, we have our BLOG CANDY WINNER!!!

Random.Madelynn has drawn a name... and it's...it's....CHRISTI! We put everyone's name in a hat b/c there were some deleted posts and also some who didn't wish to be entered so to make sure it was done right, we did it the ol' fashioned way! CONGRATS Christi and I'll be mailing out your goodies today!!! Whoo hoo!

Now, I just have to tell you, too how excited I am about this week's sketch shown to the left here. Isn't it FABULOUS? Sometimes I wonder how this is all coming from an eight year old you know? Even though, I shouldn't say that because her creativity and imagination is something we've gotten very used to by now...but still, she just amazes me. Great job on this Madelynn! Mommy is SO proud of you!
I also have to tell you how excited I am about this little Pretty Hat Anya from The Greeting Farm! Isn't she fancy? I just love her. She comes with all different kinds of fun accessories...even animals!...that you can add to her fabulous hat. And I mean FABULOUS! That seems to be the theme...
I thoroughly enjoyed coloring her in, giving her a beautiful strand of pearls and coloring in the Rose with my Copic Spica pens. The lighting was pretty dim today in the house and my flash over did it, so you can't really see how GLORIOUSLY sparkly these pens are but OH MY...OH MY!!! Love them. Love her.
Ha ha reminds me of "My Best Friend's Wedding". Have you seen it? The part where Rupert Everett meets Kimmie's mom and goes "Love it. Love the bag, love the shoes, love everything. LOVE IT!" That's JUST how I feel about this fancy Anya :)

I have another card today from our Twinkle Team's featured stamper of the week, none other than the fabulous Cassie! Isn't this card GAWJUS???? I told her that after I woke up from fainting, I'd post it LOL! Seriously, I loved her interpretation of the sketch and it's pink...AND has butterflies. You girls are so good to me :) Cassie and I met through the Pink Papery Studios DT and have become friends. She is so sweet and cheerful every time we email and as the DT coordinator for PPS, she is SO encouraging to the rest of the team. Thanks for being our featured stamper this week, Cassie!
I LOVE the detail on this card. The colors, the 3D butterflies w/ the pearls...and I really like the piecing of the sentiment. So sweet! You really rocked this challenge, Cassie!
So, you want to play the sketch? We certainly hope you do! There's no time limit this week...just make sure you leave a comment here on this post so that DD and I can come take a look at your, well...fABULOUS creation!
Make sure you use keyword MTTSC4 on SCS or PCP. Speaking of which, did you know? Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesdays now has a group on PaperCraft planet! Check out the details HERE.
Be sure to stop by the ENTIRE Twinkle Team's blogs and show 'em some love today as they have whipped up some greatness for you to enjoy!
Stay tuned tomorrow as I have a few things to show you :) Til then...hugs!

Jessica :)

Heather said...

I did it finally!!! after two cards meant to be for Madelynn's sketch I ended up finally asigning a card that had to be for the sketch it had no choice, but it worked so perfectly for the sketch.

This one was fun Madelynn and I wish you could see how pretty the glitter strips I used for your two stripes across the card, but they do not show up as bright and sparkly in pictures as in person!!!

Thanks for another great Sketch!!!.

Jessica that Anya is totally adorable, and I love your colors and your DSP Oh My this card is so beautiful I totally want one!!! LOL

Have a Great Night!

Heather
