Some Fun Info!

I have a couple of things to tell you about today. First, I am cordially inviting you to the very first Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop. It’s tomorrow!!!  We have lots of amazing talent over there and we’d love to show it off a bit! Won’t you please join us? You can start the hop from any point, be it here at my blog, the S&S blog, or any of the other members. We will all have a full hop list posted on our blogs. It’s going to be awesome!!!

 

The next thing I’m excited to share with you is a new Challenge Blog called Friends Having Fun. It was started by my awesome friend Tonya (the mastermind behind Twilight Tuesday). I’m really excited because it’s going to be a great blog. But, I’ll let Tonya fill you in on the deets. Here’s what she wrote:

The Friends Having Fun challenge blog is almost ready to start having fun!

We have four teams and each team will host a weekly challenge.

Let’s meet our team leaders:

Alison – Color Challenge (week 1)

Dani – Sketch Challenge (week 2)

Sarabeth – Recipe Challenge (week 3)

Erica – Pop Culture Challenge (week 4)

Each team is looking for 3-4 friends (design team members) who would like to have fun!

Deets:

  • 3 Month Term

  • Post 1 time a month

  • Can apply for as many teams as you’d like but can only be accepted to 2 max at a time. Please indicate your preference order. At the end of term, you can apply for another team!

  • Bring your fun! We’re looking for topic ideas to post about during the week. For example, home organization, health information, exercise, travel, etc.

  • Entries must be received by Friday, March 12th. Terms start in April.

  • Email 2 of your favorite projects, a little about yourself and your blog address to tonya@stamphappens.com. Prior experience is not necessary.

Anyone who is interested in sponsoring us should contact Margie for information.

 

So, who wants to be on my team??? I just want to say that this is NOT a competition, but I need some friends who want to be on the Color Challenge Design Team!!! Won’t you join me???

All the teams are cooking up some awesome ideas, and I’m sure that everyone will have a blast. I can’t wait for it all to begin! You’ll probably recognize many if not all the Team Leaders. It will be great to work with all of them again!

So make sure you stop back here tomorrow for the Smeared and Smudged Blog Hop, and then get your entries for the Friends Having Fun Challenge over to Tonya! Have a great day!!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
