WOOHOOO!! and Have a Lovely Day

Hello - and WOOHOO!! I'm so excited to be the Eclectic Paperie Friend of the Week!! Thanks Daisy and Joy - you girls ROCK!! Not only are these two girls fantastic, smart, fun, talented, and great business women - but I am lucky enough to call them my FRIENDS!! :)

So I sat down last night to create. I have been really enjoying designing lately. So what did I grab - my new Tree-mendous Love set by Our Craft Lounge. Eclectic Paperie has a fantastic selection of stamps from this new company! I just *adore* the birds that come with this set - and as soon as I saw the tree, I KNEW I had to stick a little birdie in there!! ACK! I love it!

I colored with my Copics. I am still very much a beginner using them (yeah - um -don't click on the card and look too closely at my coloring -eeek) - but am really enjoying the results. I feel like a kid in a candy store when I look at all my markers and all the luscious colors!

I based the colors I used (all colored cardstock is Stampin' Up!) on the patterned paper by My Mind's Eye. Oooh - the colors! YUM!

Have you ever used Cryogen White cardstock????? I love how well images stamp on it - and ooooh-la-la -the shimmer is GORGEOUS!! Yep - that's right - a SHIMMERY cardstock. Imagine stamping your winter images, or punching out snowflakes, using this!!

Although the white cardstock already had a shimmer, can you EVER have enough? Not in my opinion - so I used my Stickles on the hearts and dots of the tree. WOW - in real life, this card is BLINGED OUT, baybee!! Gorgeous! It is amazing - a *tiny* dab of Stickles, and your image really comes to life!

As the card says, I hope you have a lovely day! And I certainly hope that your day involves just a bit of stamping (or heck, all day - LOL)!
