Good morning friends, please scroll down for our SNS candy winners!
Are you ready for a new Monday Mania challenge over at CA&Friends? This week Berenice is hosting and she has come up with a challenge that I think will appeal to the princess in each of us! It's a princess party theme in honor of her birthday today... "Happy Birthday Berenice!" and a little added sparkle doesn't hurt either. ;)
I thought this challenge was the perfect opportunity to show my Princess Anya some love since my older stamps have a tendency to get a bit neglected as the new ones join the family. It doesn't mean that I think she is any less beautiful than the day I bought her though and that feeling is just reinforced as I start coloring her up... oh Princess, how I missed you old friend. :)
I did change her up just a bit by wiping away her closed eye face with a baby wipe before stamping and then using my light box to trace Fleur Anya's smilie eye face onto her... click here for a more detailed tut on this technique. Now Princess looks all happy and excited to attend the ball, don'tcha think?
Oh, here's a little something that I just had to share... remember me saying that I'm not much of a cat person? Well I don't know if this photo changes my mind or not, LOL! You see, my sister recently moved into a new place and she couldn't take Oreo with her so rather than see him have to go to the pound he has found a new home here. He's a funny guy who likes belly rubs and apparently card making too... he's gotten into the habit of joining me anytime I sit down to create and generally leaves me about this much space to do my thing. Crazy cat... now if only I could blame the messy desk on him somehow! ;)
