Lovely Lola!!


Well, I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday!! I know I am!! Emileigh is out with her friends today and Al is sleeping after working 14 hours last night, so I have the day to myself!! I've been in my craft room all day, emerging only to take quick trips to the loo and to the kitchen to grab some sustenance!!! My kind of day!!!

I've received some wonderful entries to the challenges today and I bet more of you are working away. You have until Monday night to enter them, so lots of time.

I had a great mail day yesterday as my new Simon and Lola stamps arrived from Scotland!!! I ordered them about 10 minutes after they were released and it took about two weeks to get here, but they were worth the wait!!!

The first one is Lola with Flowers and I used some new We R Memory Keepers dp as it has this great washed out distressed look and I really like it. I coloured Lola in using my Copics and then used my Nestabilities to cut her out and emboss the frame and matted her on So Saffron. I distressed the edges of the dp more with my distressing tool and stamped the sentiment from MFT's By the Seashore....love that font. I paper pierced a line above the sentiment with my Mat Pack and then added some Prima Sprites with brads. This card was made with the Papertake Weekly Challenge in mind, which is to use Blooms of any kind on your card!!



This next card was made using Lola with her Bunny.....SO cute, right?? I lovey her!!! I used Kraft cardstock and this sparkly DCWV paper from The Town Scrapper and coloured her in accordingly using my Copics (love those things). I stamped the sentiment which is from Hanna Stamps and I added some lovely pink ribbon that I got at Michael's. I used my Mat Pack around the edges of the focal image and added a Daisy D's rhinestone heart and pop dotted the whole thing. Quick and cute!!!!

If you like the new Lola and Simon stamps by Sugar Nellie, my pal Suzanne over at Slumber Cards is having a challenge to win some!!! The challenge is to use shades of lilac or purple on your card as it is her favourite colour!!! The contest is open until next weekend, so be sure to enter!!!

Hi Kim: I had the same sort of day as you did. I am now ready to retire it is 2:04 a.m. Between making cards for you fun challenges and ATCs for another, I am stamping out.
I love your new cards...yes it was worth the wait. They are so cute. Hmmm...any Sugar Nellie's on the horizon?
It is nice to see you having fun with your new stamps, it shows.
