The Winner will be announced on the Stamp Insanity blog...so be sure to check back to see if you're a winner! For the prize, TWO lucky winner will receive one digi of their choice....Now isn't that just groovy?!! So please be sure you leave a comment on EVERY blog hop stop along the way and finish to the end for your chance to win! I’m the first stop on the hop. :) Here’s the card I made.





I made this card for my friend Laura. She is always lending me her books (mostly Dark Hunters…yum!), so I wanted to just give her a little token of my appreciation. I had never used this version of Morgan, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to give her a go.





I colored Morgan in with my colored pencils and I cut out some text that I got in a parcel from The Scrap Factory. I tried out a few different patterned papers, but nothing was working. So I decided to use Glimmer Screens and chalk to make my own background. Then I added a quote, also from StampInsanity, of course.





So there you have it! A cute card, with a cool background that’s easy to create! Want some more inspiration??? Then please visit the rest of the Groovy Gurlz! Next on the hop is my awesome friend Erica, but below is the entire hop list.

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!
