Glitter and Fairies and Makeup...OH MY!

...or should I start singing "These are a few of my favorite things!?"   Cuz THEY ARE!

I am SO excited about this week's Diedrich Dare ANNOUNCEMENT!

Beginning this week, the DIEDRICH DARE blog will now be SPONSORED!   We are super thrilled, beyond grateful, and just downright giddy about this.   Beginning TODAY, we'll be sponsored once per month with a PRIZE on the 1st Dare of the month.   HOW COOL IS THAT?!?!?


Wanna know something I LOVE besides cards?  MAKEUP.   So imagine my delight when PAPER MAKEUP STAMPS offered to sponsor the Diedrich Dare?!?  Katie Cotton, the owner and I have been blogging friends ever since the early days of The Greeting Farm, back when we were Pink Poison, actually!  I ADORE Katie, her fabulous designs, and her sweet personality!

What's more?  Besides being a FABULOUS stamp designer she's also a PHENOMENAL makeup artist, and when I show you this week's Dare, you're gonna think I did this on PURPOSE, and I didn't!


I received this UBER awesome Ed Hardy makeup set as a Christmas gift, and Madelynn liked it SO much, she decided it would make a great inspiration piece!  HOW FUNNY that it's MAKEUP?!?!?   I'd say some things are DEFINITELY just meant to be ;)


Here is my sample using the brand new Stella Sprout's head and Flutter Anya's body (I know..I altered...weird! LOL!) from The Greeting Farm!  Be sure to check out the Diedrich DARE BLOG today and get all the deets on how YOU can win some RUBBER from PMS STAMPS!  Dont' forget to send some love to my teammates, too:


"Whoever said that FAIRIES don't exist must not have been the mother of a LITTLE GIRL..."


LOVE THIS!    xoxo,  Jess ;)
