Today I thought I wanted to share another card for little Kate, the five year old girl for whom Jennifer McGuire is having a card drive. I chose Dawn McVey's Scattered Showers Additions set; it has perfect sentiments for encouragement. For papers, I chose PaperTrey's 2008 Bitty Dot Basics patterned paper in both Aqua Mist and Spring Moss. Cardstock is Stampers Select White, Aqua Mist, and Summer Sunrise.
I stamped the raindrop background with the new formula of Aqua Mist ink, and the boots in Summer Sunrise ink. For the clouds I used Versamagic Aqua Splash, edged at the bottom of the clouds with a touch of Turquoise Gem, and for the sun I used Versamagic Thatched Straw edged with Mango Madness.
Buttons are PaperTrey Ink Aqua Mist Vintage Buttons, and ribbon is Summer Sunrise Grosgrain. I added a touch of stardust Stickles to the boot handle area, thinking that any little girl likes glitter! The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder.
If you have a chance, Jennifer is still collecting cards for Kate and her family!
Also, I noticed a couple of giveaways online today; Leah Killian, one of my buddies from last year's Cosmo Cricket design team, has some Copic markers posted here. Also, Mr. Brown brought me a box of returned projects and and a copy of the new Paper Crafts Holiday Cards edition; it's fabulous! Now I just need some extra time to peruse it and be inspired. If you'll check out the Moxie Fab World blog, there are several giveaways in progress right now, some involving simply commenting, and others involving creating a challenge card. Go for it!
Finally, a friend just sent me a link to a new online magazine, Embellish, that my sweet stamping friend Ashley Newell is starting. Knowing Ashley, I am positive that this will be a fabulous resource. I'll be watching--hope you have a chance to do so too!
