Winner of the "Blog Bling"

The random # generator picked #22, and that is Jennifer, she said:

"Kim, that is wonderful! Congratulations. I can hardly wait to see your designs for The Queen! I think Heather should get the blog bling because she was so creative in her answer that I was giggling reading her solid reasoning for being the one to receive it.( was that? Did I sound like a gracious person who'd forgo getting bling herself so someone else could? That's a good reason for me, eh?!)Congratulations again and looking forward to seeing more of your beautiful work. "

Congratulations Jennifer! Please email me (link at the right side of my blog) your snail mail address and I will get that out to you right away!

Thank you to everyone for playing along with me! I loved reading all your reasons and wish I could send each and every one of you some bling....but alas, I am not rich! LOL...But I will have more blog bling when I hit 15,000 posts, and that's not too far away!



Celebrate with me! Blog Bling!

I was so excited today to get an email from Jo at The Queen's Dresser Drawers! I am officially going to be designing for her! YEAH! She has the most amazing stamps and they are just up my alley! It will probably be close to a month before I get any new rubber, but I tell ya, I can't wait! The Queen's Dresser Drawers stamps really are delicious and I saw a quick peek of things to come, very exciting!

Sooo....of course I had to go out for awhile to shop to celebrate! I know, I know, I am sick right? LOL....I know you all understand though! I went to Michael's and they had the new clear stamps in, and I thought I should pick some extra's up for BLOG BLING! Yup, that's my new name for Blog Candy! I have to give the credit to Catherine though, she thought up the name, and said I could use it! lol

I have 4 sets of the new clear stamps and the Cuttlebug Formal Squares little embossing folders to send out to one lucky person! All you have to do is post a comment and tell me why you think I should send these items to you!! lol....Any excuse will do! LOL If you are leaving a comment anonymously, please leave your name or email addy so I can reach you if you are the winner!

I will draw a winner using a random # generator tomorrow about 7 pm....not much time to post!

So....hurry up, what are you waiting for! LOL
Let the games begin! LOL
Edited to add: OMgosh, you guys are making me laugh here! I can't wait to see more of your replies! Stampers really are the best ya know!


Thank you Catherine

I received an awesome blog candy package from Catherine! She brought it over when she came to my SU party, and I have yet to thank her on my blog! Shame on me! lol...I received a purple paper holder (you know how much I love purple!), some prima flowers, 2 packages of rub-ons, and a gift certificate for Michaels! Woohooo!! I love it all!

Thank you so much Catherine!!! I will put it all to good use!

The Promise

This card is for my best friend who recently lost her father. She has been in my thoughts constantly and I wish there was something I could do for her, but I am too far away. So I am sending her this card for when she gets back home. I thought the saying was perfect. If you can't read it clearly is says " It's the simple joys, the simple pleasures the heart remembers and dearly treasures." I think that says it all. The main image is from Paperbag Studios, and the flourish is from POD. Distressed the edges of the card with Tim Holtz distress inks, tea dye. Not sure where I got the embellishments from! lol...The papers used on this card are all Cosmo Cricket...I just love their papers!
This card was totally inspired by Deborah. She did a card quite like this one and I loved it, so borrowed some of her ideas! Thank you Deborah!

Thanks for dropping by,

Doodle This

Wow, I think I am the only person that doesn't own this set, and I just LOVE it! I borrowed this set from Deborah (thank you!), and had fun creating with it last night, even though I have been sick! I first stamped the flower on pink shimmer paper 2 times, then painted over with a bit of twinkling H2O's. When that dried, I put stickles on all the little dots on the flowers. I then stamped the vine on white shimmer c/s and colored it in with tombow markers. Then I stamped the verse on a piece of white shimmer and added a couple flowers, and coloured them in with tombows as well and put stickles in the centers. All I had to do now was attach my big flower, and I did that with Mrs. Glue and adhered a big crystal as well to the center. I just love this card, it's so cheery and the colours soothing! I was actually trying to make this into an acetate card, but just couldn't figure out how to attach without showing glue somewhere, but I will figure that out eventually! lol

Thanks for coming by!


Tagged Again....

I have been tagged again by Julie . I am to name 7 unknown facts about myself! lol...Only 7?? LOL Here I go:

1. I eat my popcorn with a spoon (hate getting my fingers greasy)!! lol

2. I can't stamp in my space unless it is clean and organized. So if I made a mess last time I have to clean it up first! lol

3. I can't eat oatmeal or eat raw tomatoes, the texture of them in my mouth grosses me out.

4. I love the smell of coffee and sometimes make a small pot just to smell that aroma, but I hate the taste of it.

5. I don't like the dark.

6. I am deathly afraid of spiders.

7. I will not go in a restaurant by myself, I like the person to go with me or meet me outside.

Hmm...I must sound a bit nutty! But hey, that's me! LOL I think most everyone I know has told 7 things about themselves already, but if you are reading and haven't, I am tagging you!!

I am off to stamp a bit! Have a great evening!



On Wednesday night, I had some of the ladies over to stamp! It was so great to see what everyone was creating and the different styles! Julie, Louise and Val came over. I only got one card partially done, and finished it last night. I received the beautiful woman stamp as a RAK from Sheila, and have used her card she made as inspiration. I did a reverse mask as she did to put flowers on her dress, and glittered in a few spots as well. I feel bad for not coming up with my own ideas, but sheesh, Sheila's work is gorgeous, I don't think I could come up with anything nicer after seeing her card! lol...Thank you so much Sheila for the stamps, and your beautiful card!

I am having a SU Party on Tuesday night! I just received the new catalogue yesterday and have my wish list started already! I really need a couple sets....have you all seen Baroque Motifs?? Now that is GORGEOUS! urgh.....there goes my paycheck! LOL

Anyway, I am off to work! Have a great day everyone! And I hope to have more to share with you later this evening! Oh yeah, I will also try to take a better picture tonight and change the pic, it's not the best! LOL
