A Card and some RAKs!!!

Here is a card I whipped up this morning before work. The colour challenge was posted early so I was able to play since I had a brand spankin' new stamp set just mounted, sittin' on my desk!!

The challenge was to use any pink or pinks on your card, so I grabbed my Pixie Pink ink and my new Phoebe 6x6 pad and went to town!! I used Big Blooms from the Spring Mini and stamped the bloom part in Pixie Pink and the stem in Certainly Celery, I used the ticket corner punch and matted it in Chocolate Chip, then added dots with my white Signo gel pen. Did the same around the matting of the BG paper and added some polka dot grosgrain ribbon and a little tag that says 'so grateful', pop dotted the image and it's done! So simple.....'cause that's all I had time for or I woulda been late for work!!!

I have had two WONDERFUL secret pals in the last little while and I just want to give them each a SHOUT-OUT!!! Firstly, my Secret Bunny Julee sent me a fab reveal gift back at Easter but she was unable to find some of the stuff she had originally gotten for me (we all know what that's like....especially if your craft room looks like mine)!! So I got another package from her afterwards with all these goodies in it!!

She sent me some yummy alphabet pebbles by Making Memories, some pretty American Crafts ribbon, a whole BUNCH of sentiment stamps from Purple Onion and the BEST part was the altered clothespin that she MADE me!! It's very special and has my name on it and everything!! It is in a special place in my stamp room for ALL to see!! Thanks so much Julee!! You da bomb-diggity!!!

Then today was reveal day for the Secret Friend switcheroo and I opened the most wonderful envelope from my pal Vivian (Vivlyn on SCS)!!

She totally went overboard and I'm so glad she did...heehee!! I got TWO 6x6 pads of Basic Grey paper in Phoebe and Gypsy......I got a whole ziploc bag of HUGE prima flowers like I have never seen before....a WHOLE SET of Rhonna Farrer stamps....and the best part was those little stamps you see in the pic. Viv is so sneaky...she had seen somewhere on SCS that I have a nephew who LOVES all things pirate and I wanted to make him a special 'piratey' birthday card but I didn't have any pirate stamps......so she specially ordered them from Cat's Pajamas for ME!!!! They are so wonderful!! Thanks Vivian!!! Mwah!!!

Now don't forget to enter my scrappin' challenge!! Ya still have until Friday night to get in your entry and you could be a weiner.....I mean WINNER!!! *snort*

Oh, I'm so jealous. I don't have any of the Cat's Pajamas pirate stamps - they're next on my wishlist. Looks like you had a couple of FANTABULOUS secret friends! LOL! I love that little tag and all the dots on your card.

I'm so glad you liked your goodies! It was fun picking them out! I need some of the Rhonna Farrer stamps now!!! I did get some Cat's Pajamas for me while I was at it! There's going to be another exchange coming up soon, so check back on the site from time to time. Your new friend, Viv!
