Paper Sundaes

Due to the crazy weekend here, I didn't have time to adequately give this card it's time in the spotlight.  So, don't forget to hop on over to Paper have until midnight on Saturday to enter your card with Spring and Bling for a chance to win!

This week our challenge is being sponsored by Paper Makeup Stamps who graciously provided our design team with images from their collection of Beautiful Day Fairies by artist Diem Pascarella.

Paper Makeup Stamps will provide this week's random winner with a collection of stamps valued at approximately $25! In addition to gorgeous fairies, PMS carries a wide variety of stamps including Animals, Dinosaurs by Dustin Pike, Monsters & Aliens, Moody Girls, and a wonderful collection of sentiments and word art. Katie also stocks Spellbinders, bling, shimmerz, E-Z mount, and other storage solutions.

As winter continues to drag on, we want everyone to focus on the upcoming season with this week's theme "A Glittery Spring".

 The layout if from the Basic Grey Challenge #13.  The paper is from the Basic Grey Lemonade Collection.  I coloured the image with my Copics and played around a bit with my blending pen...which is far too neglected.

Did I tell you that I now own all the Copics with the exception of the Flourescents?  Well I do!  So, now that I'm done "collecting" them, I'm hoping to do one tutorial a week until I'm a pro at using them.  And, the reason that I didn't have cards waiting in the wings to post (of course, I was waiting for my few hours alone on the weekend to really get things done) is because I was knitting my little one a hat.  She has a small head for a 4 year old.  Kid hats are all too big and toddler hats are all too small. I'd just send her with a hat that is too big, except that she wears glasses and so if the hat pushes the glasses down she takes off the glasses...and knitting hats is cheaper than buying new glasses! So, I decided to take matters into my own hands.  What do you think?

Great picture, huh!  It was taken by BananaStamper the day that my oldest and I were waiting in the ER to see the doc.  In real life, it's about 1 inch too short...okay for warm days, but not big enough for days when the wind is whipping around - the kids go out to play at school unless the windchill is colder than -25 celcius, so a hat that covers your ears is essential.  So, I have started a second hat that I'm hoping to get finished over the weekend, one with ear flaps.  Once it's done, I'll have her model it too!

great card and hat! knitting is tricky - everything I ever knitted was too big ;)
out kids don't go out if it's colder than -10C, yours are more used to the cold - I guess ;)
