My Little, Lotsa-Lovely-Layers Valentine...

Hey everyone!

Happy Twinkie Day! Yep, it's Twinkling Tuesday! We have been keeping busy on the Twinkle Team this week...we had some new players...which was FANTASTIC! We also spent a lot of time hanging out over at our PCP page and had a few more people join in on the fun! Be sure to head over there, too to see what all the chatter is about...and when I say ALL the chatter...I'm not kidding! hee hee...
Madelynn did another outstanding job on this week's sketch. It was a fun one! Lots of layers and made ya think about how you were going to do your focal point image. I love the sketch and will most likely use it again!

I chose the EVAH adorable Lily w/ her Kitty stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller (Stampavie) for my card. I was joking with my cousin saying that this card probably cost me about a buck or more in bling...but it HAD to be there, don't you agree?

I used Shimmerz in Bubblegum to paint her dress, then when it was dry, I went over it with Angel Wings. This gave it a fun shading technique and made the dress look slightly worn and more textured.

Anyway, hope you guys like my card as much as I loved following DD's sketch. Thanks sweetie! You rocked it again!

Our featured stamper this week is Danni! Danni and I met a few months ago and have become friends through our blogs. She is one talented lady who just happens to love Butterflies just as much as I do! So she was close to my heart already even BEFORE I got to know her terrific personality and stamping style. Danni is wonderful at RAK'ing people too...always lets you know how much she cares and is active on the TT in our PCP group which is fun that I get to chat with her so much!

Isn't this card cute? She chose this adorable Sarah Kay image (also Stampavie) and did an amazing job coloring her!

Add to it the fun buttons, and bring, springy DP and I'm ready for a picnic! I so love knowing that Spring is coming! I NEED it to be here soon!!!

Danni also sent us (Madelynn and I) this SUPER cute RAK the other day and so while she was the featured stamper this week, I just had to show her off? Isn't she sweet? Flutter By Sophia is one of my favorite images and Danni is an avid Paper Pretties fan so she knew I would absolutely adore this card! How thoughtful, isn't it? It really put a smile on my face to get this in the mail the other day and Madelynn just loved it, too! Thanks Danni!

Well, that's about all I have for you today, but be sure to check out the other TT's blogs, as you won't want to miss their creative takes on the sketch.

Want to play along with us this week? You SHOULD!!! Show us your style and dazzle us with your OWN twinkling Tuesday creation! Madelynn would love to stop by and see what you come up with! If you upload to SCS or PCP, be sure to use keyword MTTSC6. Good luck and have FUN with this one!
I'll be back tomorrow with something Prettie for you... ;)

She is SO cute. Love how you used an oval on this one and all the pinks. Boy, all that bling though, wow - I am impressed. I don't know if I would be willing to share that much bling with one person! LOL!
