Twinkling Tuesday: A friend like you...

Hey everyone!
I'm back with my Twinkling Tuesday post! Be sure to check out my post below today, too for a fun sale and some new stamps...

So, DD hit it out of the park again with this awesome sketch, MTTSC10! Love it!

I used the new Leere Aldrich "Mother and Daughter" stamp from Stampavie to create my card for this week's sketch. I also chose the quote from the "Sentiments B" set, "I'm so happy to have a friend like you". This stamp is versatile enough that it can be a mom/daughter but also look like two best girlfriends, dontcha think?

It didn't show up all too well on my camera, but I used Inkessential's Glossy Effects for her sunglasses and the pink Handbag (it's patent, dontcha know? LOL). I'm trying to figure out why my watermark decided to grow to three times the size...? LOL. For now, I just wanted to get this post up but will have to look into that! Of course, I just had to do some paper piecing too to make her shirt match my DP... a girl's gotta acessorize, right?

My sweet friend Janna is our featured stamper this week and has an AWESOME post on the Twinkling Tuesday blog so be sure to go over and check it out! And while you're at it, check out the amazing twinkling creations of:


Have a great Tuesday and if you want to play along, we'd love to see them! Be sure to leave a comment on the Twinkling Tuesday blog so that we can all hop on over and see your beautiful creations! If you choose to upload to SCS or PCP, use keyword MTTSC10.
