Oh, how I wish it was Spring, can I TELL you? I am so sick of this cold...hearing reports that more snow is coming...kids not being able to enjoy being outside. I'm just a little done w/ winter, and so when I was going through some Little Paper Shop stamps and came across my Nature's Garden set, I knew exactly what I wanted to do :) Someone I know is going through a bit of a rough patch right now, too so I thought I'd make her this card in the hopes of cheering her up. I hope it works because I love this person so very much.
Well, today is Twinkling Tuesday, and our sketch this week was a stumper for me! That little DD of mine is quite the artiste! Oh how I could squeeze her as she was working on the next sketch already as she watched me make my card and pretend not to struggle LOL! She is so talented, that girl!
Some spring flowers was just what this card needed to spruce it up and bring the circular effect that I needed to come together. I used the sentiment from the Butterflies and Blossoms set, also by The Little Paper Shop and added a touch of my favorite Kaiser pearls to get the job done.
Our featured stamper this week is Jami. I heart Jami! Can I just tell you? This couldn't have come at a better week, too because I have some VERY exciting news to share with you! Jami is not only a talented stamper, but a very gifted artist and she just so happens to have launched her VERY OWN stamp set for 2RedBananas! CONGRATS Jami!
Have you been to her blog? How about the 2Red Bananas website? I visited recently and can tell you that I will definitely be ordering soon! They have a ton of awesome products...a LOT of my favorites, and are in the process of debuting their new stamps, so stay tuned!
Jami used some of their new sets to make her card this week. I LOVE the rich blues and that big bold flower in the center. So pretty! Jami's style is always super elegant and rich looking to me and she has amazing heart. I am SO happy I've gotten to know her. She is a loyal friend and great source of encouragement to all of us on the team!
Speaking of our Twinklettes...we have grown this week! I'd love for you to join me in welcoming Jacquie Peifer and Kim Ross to the Twinkle Team! I'm also very, VERY excited to report that our numbers of people playing Madelynn's sketch are growing by the week...ALSO very exciting! I love seeing your cards, and DD is absolutely tickled pink to see people playing her challenges and loving her sketch creations. This is such a blessing for both of us, thank you!
Because of this, I am excited to announce that there will be BLOG CANDY next week, Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009 here on my blog :) This correlates perfectly with my one year "Blogaversary", so stay tuned for all the fun details!
As always, be sure to use our keywords when you UL to SCS or PCP so that we can all have a look. Be sure to leave a comment here too to let me know, thanks! This week's keyword is MTTSC7.
Thanks and have a Twinkling Tuesday!
Jessica and Madelynn :)
