I'm Tickled Pink About Sweet November

Recently I saw THIS amazing easel card on Norma's blog and thought I'd use the idea for Kellie's Pink Ladies' DT challenge for Tickled Pink Stamps. Kellie asked us to combine one of the gorgeous Sweet November images with ribbon. With everything going on last week I finally got around to finishing my card yesterday - oh OK - I admit - I only started it yesterday - LOL. Last night I spent some time blog hopping and came across Fran's DT card for this challenge - I had to laugh - we are obviously in synch this week! What can I say - she's one talented gal so am happy to be in synch with her - LOL.

This is Fidget Goblinspider and is one of the Sweet November cuties that Kellie has at Tickled Pink Stamps. The ribbon was pinched off one of my daughter's birthday presents - my reward for all the hard work organising the party - LOL. I've had this butterfly punch for years - these guys have been punched out and then coated with Dazzling Diamonds. The DP was a scrap from my stash- I think it's Basic Grey - I'm a bit of a Basic Grey fan if you hadn't noticed - LOL. I tried to make it look like she was floating in a garden - I think I pulled it off!!!

And don't forget Kellie has the personalised stamps for order - even for overseas stampers!

EDIT - If you've been waiting for the new release Kraftin' Kimmies they are IN STORE NOW - along with some fabulous sentiment sets!!!

Awww, she's so pretty! Cute easel Debbie *Ü* *gasp* I have that same signature stamp for the back of my cards and I love the way you stamp it in white and punched out circles for darker backgrounds, you genious you!! LOL I get lazy on my black or other dark cards to emboss in white or other so I just leave it off. NOT ANY MORE! You are full of bright ideas ;) THanks!
