I'm Back and Thinking Pink

CCEE Stampers post one below:
I've returned after being away for a few weeks. Thanks to all who came by my blog while I was away. I'll be visiting your blogs very soon.

I'm in a pink least, for today. :-) My card is simple with two handmade banners, adding a die cut and placing the Inspired by Stamping sentiment over it. The sentiment and pretty circle are from the Inspired by Stamping Cute Circles set. I colored the circle on the inside to match the rose colored banner, using Copic RV17.

I made this card for a couple of challenges:

Dryer Sheet Flower Challenge


I'm back for the last week of June challenges at CCEE Stampers. I am giving the challenge this week to use a dryer sheet flower on your card. If you need help making this flower, go here on Splitcoaststampers for the tutorial by Emily Keaton. It is a really fun flower to make so save those used dryer sheets.

After forming my flower with Spellbinders Blossom dies, I sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and added Stickles to the edges. My flower is rather big but I tend to like it.
When dry, I punched holes for the brad to fit and added to the card.

I'm using a sketch from Splitcoaststampers SC439 for my card.

We hope you'll join us for this last week of the month, make a pretty dryer sheet flower, and link up at CCEE Stampers using the inlinkz tool.

I've decide to step down from the Design Team at CCEE Stampers. I'm so glad to have had the opportunity to join this wonderful, talented team since Jan., 2012  but life has been a bit hectic lately and I need some time for just whatever comes along for a while. I'll certainly miss the team but I'm sure I'll be seeing them in different places with their great creations.

To My Blogging Pals:

I've had to leave my blog for a bit. Real life has stepped in in and I'll probably only be uploading my pre-scheduled CCEE Stampers cards for the next three weeks. I'll miss everyone and hope to be back soon.
