Happy Twinkling Tuesday with a a double shot of espresso on top! I have to admit that today, I am absolutely exhausted. It's going to be another busy week...probably worse that last week LOL..but sometimes things just get taxing, you know? Not this stuff, but just life stuff...and of course, the complaint that most of us probably have...not enough time to do the things i enjoy, like more stamping! LOL...
Anyway, I am still feeling sick and actually taking another detour to the dr. today, so I'm hoping that will help. However, I am SO excited because we have some super fun stuff going on today. First off, our dear Heather is the featured stamper this week over on the Twinkling Tuesday blog! Go check out her super cool post! I sort of miss having the featured stamper for the TT here on my blog, because it was my chance to rave about that person.
So, I will just tell you this. Heather is a dear, dear person who I am glad to be getting to know. She breathes so much life and enthusiasm into the Twinkle Team and is also extremely attentive. Heather takes the time to leave the most wonderful comments on people's blogs and I just think she's the sweetest! You can really tell she cares. Not to mention the fact that her blog posts are amazing. SO much attention to detail and the pictures...oh! the pictures! Most of you know that blogger...well, isn't always my friend, esp. when it comes to uploading pics! So this is especially impressive to me!
Now, she is going to be mad at me, because there is one thing about her that you may know from reading her comments on my blog...she isn't very fond of brown. And while I SWEAR I didn't do this on purpose...isn't this little "Barista" just the cutest? I LOVE coloring in these images and couldnt' resist pulling out some liquid pearls for the "whip" on my latte! My son Nicky helped me make this card. Chef Ian from The Greeting Farm is one of his favorite stamp sets! He had a blast and so did I! I just got this Paisley embossing folder that my friend Heather (a different Heather lol) picked up for me...thanks Heather! It totally matched the paper so I got to play with it right away. That's always the best, right?
So, yes, this card is brown, but NOT on purpose hee hee...I mean, it's a coffee card...so it kinda HAS to be right ;) ? Anyway, be sure to check out the CUTENESS over on Heather's blog, the Twinkling Tuesday sketch blog, and the rest of the Twinkle Team, as their links are on my sidebar! Want to play along with us? We'd LOVE you to! If you upload to SCS/PCP, use keyword MTTSC12. Leave us a comment on the TT blog too to let us know you did! We can't wait to see what you create!
While we're at it, ANOTHER exciting announcement:
Please help me welcome my very close friend DARLA WILSON to the Twinkle Team! Welcome Darla! I have been begging, nagging, requesting, suggesting that Darla join us ever since the beginning of DD's little journey into sketchdom...and she finally agreed! Darla has an awesome NEW blog and is not only creative, but the kindest heart you could meet and I am thrilled to have her!
Wow! Lots happening on this Twinkling Tuesday! Stay tuned next week for a VERY special "Temporary Twinkie"...as the handsome and talented Jack, who just happens to be my DS, debuts HIS very first sketch! Could this be any more exciting of a day....
....yes, yes it can. Stay tuned for another post...it's a big one!
