Double Take Thursday, and an Award!

Morning Everyone,

The challenge I set for Beth and I this week was to use Inkadinkado stamps! Have you seen their stamps lately? Gorgeous!! And they have so many new clear sets out at a great price! Anyway, this week I wanted to use a new frog stamp that I bought. My LSS store owner is great, she is always thinking of me when she orders! She got in this great frog with a crown. She also made me a custom stamp for the back of my cards with a little frog wearing a crown. All a play on my last name PRINCE. So when I saw this stamp I had to get it! lol...I am calling this card STILL WAITING...I know I have a warped sense of humour at times! lol All stamps used are Inkadinkado, except for the sentiment, it's from Stampabitilities. Papers used are all from the new Basic Grey line Sugared. I used my Copics to colour him in, but I have not found the perfect ink yet, as it bled slightly in one place. I should have redone the card, but, I know I am too critical, so I am thinking if I can overlook this, hopefully you all can too! lol....I hate posting anything I am not happy with, but I am doing it this time! LOL I also went over the crown with Copic Spica Glitter Pens. I wish you could see the sparkle of these, it's really amazing, so unlike other glitter pens!
I haven't been over to Beth's blog yet, but am heading there now to see what I know will be awesome! lol Stop by if you have a chance and see what she did with her Inkadinkado stamps!


Last but not least, I was given an award from Julie at Out to Impress. It's the Arte Y Pico award. The award is given to bloggers who share their art creations through blogging! Now.... I have to pick SOME folks to pass this beauty on to..... (Oh man, too many to pick from, and I want to really pass it on to everyone that blogs!) These are the people I am choosing and they are being picked because of their creativity, design and interesting material.

My dear friend Sheila (Manicstamper) also chose me for this award! Thank you Sheila, you do amazing work and are such an inspiration to me! (check out Sheila's blog and you will know what I am talking about! :) I am very lucky to have made such incredible blogging friends!!

If you haven't checked out these blogs before, you are in for a real treat! And don't forgot to stop by Julies blog, her work is amazing!!! Thank you so much for the award Julie, you are a sweetheart!

Good Luck everyone, and have a wonderful day!

This is so cute!! The frog is great, and how sweet of the store owner to make you a personal stamp. I miss my little craft shop - the only downside of here is no decent shop anywhere!

Beth Norman said...

Cute, cute, cute. I like how you do things that relate to your last name. Cool. I think there are 32 pkgs of goodies in that jar. I hope you're not buying any more though. he he
Thank you for the award. How special.

Love your Prince card! You did a great job with your challenge! I think you have 42 packages of stamps in that vase. Looking forward to hearing the correct answer! Jennifer

I can't believe your LSS owner made you a frog! How cool! I always love seeing your double take Thursday (and Beth's too)
I am going to guess 37 stamps.

Okay, seriously....I love the frog. This card is perfect, it is so regal looking and wow does that frog have a look of attitude...he knows who's prince! I love frogs (my license plate is RIBITT)
I scrolled down further on your blog...I haven't been here before, clicked over from Beth's, 'cause she told us to. I'm bookmarking your site for sure....I will be back. Beautiful work. Joan

okay, love the frog. Very cute. now for a number. I will guess 27. That's my number and I am sticking to it!

What a fabulous card Kim.

Snap......I gave you the award too.

I am not going to try for the Blog Bling as I have nearly every set of these stamps going so it's only fair that someone gets a chance who doesn't have them.

Love the frog card. I enjoy your blog and I would love to accept your bling. My guess would be 39 stamp sets.
