Magenta Kangaroo!!!


Okay, sorry about not posting yesterday. Ya know how life gets in the way sometimes. Well, remember the laptop I was so excited about a couple of weeks ago?? Well we got it.....yippee, right?? Wrong. We were promised a 3 year warranty but when the thing came, the paperwork said only a 1 year warranty. Needless to say, we were not impressed because that's the whole reason we went with it. So we were on the phone with BELL for a while trying to get it straightened out and of course, it has to go through the different channels and we might not know anything for THREE WEEKS!!! My honey was a might perturbed and asked to speak to a manager!! He explained that we weren't asking for anything more than what we were promised and that if we don't get the full warranty, they can not only have the 'pooter back (sniff, sniff), they can cancel all our services and we will be changing providers!! So there!!! So now I have to look at the box in the corner with my wonderful laptop in it........and not touch it!! Hmph!!

Anyway, on to the card!! Yesterday was my day off so in between loads of laundry and cooking.....I made several cards!! Yay!! Don'tcha love when the creativity just flows outta ya??!! And since you like my Magenta Horsie cards so much, I picked up this cutsie pie Magenta Kangaroo stamp the other day!!! Do you lovey???

I stamped the image in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink on shimmery white cardstock and used my Prismacolor pencils and OMSpirits to colour it. Then I shaded around the image with my Sahara Sand marker and doodled around the frame. I used my yummy dee-lish Basic Grey Blush patterned paper for this one and another card I made yesterday too, but I'll share that one another day. The card is a 5 1/2 inch square Chocolate Chip base matted with Real Red and the patterned paper. I added some American Crafts polka dot ribbon and the Prima Flowers in the corner with an SU brad. The phrase, 'Hoppy Birthday' is from the Unfrogettable set which I stamped on pp and cut out using my Word Window Punch and added a couple of brads to them. Of course I sponged around the edges of the pp and also the sentiment strips and pop dotted the Kangaroo image!! So sweet, right???

Kimmie - the card is so cute! I love how you doodle around the edges of your cards. You've inspired me to try it, I'm working on a card for a Penny Black swap and I am so in love with the hedgies. My card is very cute, I think, but it needs something so I'm definitely thinking doodle. I mentioned this to my sister and she said the same thing "like on that Bella card." See your cards make quite an impression. That swap was months ago!!!

That kangaroo (and your card, of course!) is so cute! Can you tell me where I can find Magenta stamps? I tried a google search, but I don't think I ended up in the right place. Thanks!
