You make life fun

Hey there!

Can I just say that there was way less music than I expected on Glee last night, especially considering that the episode was about a concert fundraiser? Sure it was cool to see and hear Sunshine again but the whole whole hour seemed pretty light on the tunes... and on the male vocals. But at least we have 90 minutes to look forward to next week AND Kurt will be back at McKinley! Happy dance!

Ok, ok, that's enough Glee chatter for the moment... time to move on to my card for today. ;)
We have a new Wednesday Challenge up over at All That Scraps and it is to create your own flower accents. Punches, dies, rolled ribbon... whatever crafty way you can think of creating some special blossoms for your card or project, we want to see them! This was a great excuse for me to pull out my MFT rolled rose die once again and make a fun felt rose to match the MME papers I used. Yes, they are Stella & Rose scraps for the second time this week but you are just going to have to humor me... at least until I can get my hands on the NEW My Mind's Eye Lime Twist mini paper pads that are due to release soon, woot woot!

I also used another of the Sweet November Zodiac girls stamps in a non-zodiac way. This one was easy because all I had to do was snip off Gemini's necklace and it easily became to friends hanging out together having fun. I was in a bit of a rush to get this colored up so I feel like I could have done a bit better on their hair but other than that I'm pretty happy with how this came out. :)

Alrighty, if you would like to play along for the prize this week just remember that in order to be eligible to win, your project must include a stamp that is sold in the All That Scraps store. Whether it is any of our wonderful in house designs or from the various other stamp companies that ATS carries, the choice is yours. Then be sure to link up your creation with Mr Linky by next Tuesday at 10pm est and only one entry per person please!

Later gators!

What a beautiful flower you made!!! I thought it was store bought yet still had the appeal of a lovely homemade project! The Gemini girls are wonderful on this- the coloring is tremendously good!!

I thought Glee was just ok too. I got most excited about: 1. Shuester and sub teacher breaking up. And 2. the annulment of somebody's marriage!!! :) :) :)

Gorgeous Amy - love the Gemini stamp used as friendship card - and I think their hair looks beautiful. And I'm with you - I "might" stop using these MME pads only when the new ones come out!
