I Was a Winner at SAS4Kids


Friday, September 7, 2012


Good Lord!! So many events have happened in the last eight days that I don't know whether I'm coming or going!!  My oldest daughter Emily had surgery, my younger daughter Elaine delivered our sixth grandchild...a precious little girl, Addison Margaret, and my niece Molly got married!!  Whew!!  Anyway...we are having a challenge over at The Poodles Parlour and the theme is "For the Girls".  Our sponsor for this challenge is Papelitos Stamps, and I made this card using the "Heather" image.  She is truly adorable...don't you think!!  I colored her up with Prisma pencils, and used the Big Scalloped Circles from Spellbinders as the base. I used my new Spellbinders "Rose Creations" for my flowers and used some black brads I have had laying around forever for the centers. All the papers are from my stash (love using them up).  I added some faux stitching around the flowers and pink background paper (Got scrunched up a bit while I was gluing everything together!).  The sentiment is from Stampin Up!  Thanks for stopping by...hope you enjoy my card!!

Patty just as the sentiment says your card is totally adorable. The colors are eye catching and I love the design using this sweet image. Beautifully Done! xx

Hi Patty this card is lovely such a cute image. In answer to your question about hairspray. I sprayed printed image as soon as it came out of printer might be better to wait but it worked for me. I made sure I had covered all of image and then blasted with hair dryer. I didn't think it would work as I've never had any trouble with ink smudging before. I don't know if it works with alcoholic markers this was with prismas and sansador or zest-it.

Great layout on your card Patty! I especially like the diagonal ribbon - I haven't seen that before! Also like the sentiment going off the page.
