You're Unique...


Hey everyone!

It's time for another Twinkling Tuesday post and I want to dedicate this one to our Twinkle Team. Now, you might not have guessed this about me (LOL now and get it over with ;) that I TEND to be a mushy gushy person a lot of the time...so I will warn you that this is one of those days... (disclaimer. check.)

I guess I just want to express my utmost gratitude to this team of women who come together every week-without "having to", "needing to", or because I am giving them anything...but because they saw the incredible heart and creative soul of an eight year old girl (who is now nine...sniff!) and thought it was so wonderful that they adore her sketches and give her the great joy of seeing them every week. You guys have no idea how much that means to her. And to those who play along with us every week...thank you so much!!!
The main theme of my card today is "Unique". This week's challenge was issued by our featured stamper Rebecca's son Jameson, and you can read more about that on the TT blog. In keeping with what the inspiration means to me, along with the Asian inspired Ketto stamp and using similar colors of Suki's Kimono (see TT blog), I think you can all see where I drew inspiration from to create this card in the photo I included above. Also, the story of Suki's Kimono is about a very unique little girl! Talk about being able to relate! I am beyond blessed to have two of them ;)

However, I also chose the word UNIQUE because of the amazing thing about a group of stampers getting together, week after week such as the Twinkle Team...whether it's a sketch, a picture to draw inspiration, or a color challenge, you are all so UNIQUE in your BEAUTIFUL interpretations that I just, again, want to say THANK YOU! I love seeing what you guys do week after week! You are all lovely and talented girlies and I {HEART} you and appreciate you...and Madelynn does too!

Be sure to check out their cards and how THEY got inspired this week:
Alright, now that I'm COMPLETELY covered in mushy goo ;), I leave you, hopefully, with the warm fuzzies because you all deserve them! And to all who read my blog, YOU do too!!! Thank you for coming here and making me feel unique, too ;) {{{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Love the color scheme. The red and blue are just so crisp and striking together. So pretty, fun, yet classy. Fabulous take on the challenge. :)
