Good afternoon folks and I really hope you have a fab weekend!
I'm very exited today because it's all happening over at The Pixie Cottage! Rather than try to explain it myself, here's what is happening in Michelle's words:
Today is the first Saturday of The Pixie Cottage Design Team Showcase!
Every other Saturday the Design Team will showcase some of The Pixie Cottage stamps, with a particular theme in mind. (Today's is fall... of course) We will also try to provide you with some cards that use the newest released stamps. (Even sometimes before they are available for sale!)
Also, get ready for our Once Upon a Wednesday Challenge! Kristen will be setting that up here on this blog this week, so watch for details. Just so you know you will be welcome to use any stamps in this challenge and I will be providing the prizes! Of course the wonderful gals on the design team will be providing examples for the challenge!!
Do hop over and take a look as the DT really have provided some stunning work. I'm just getting to know my new teamies and they have made me feel really welcome ;o) I hope you can also visit Michelle's store to check out the full range of Pixie Cottage stamps, some of which are available now, some for preorder and some coming very soon. The ladies who design these stamps have a wealth of talent and I know there will be something to suit every taste. Whilst you're at Michelle's Store you will notice that she has lots more in the way of yummy goodies to tempt you, including a brilliant selection of Magnolia stamps!
The image on my card is Little Witch created by Alisa Ramirez and she seriously is 'Too Cute To Spook'!!! Have you seen those gorgeous eyes and amazing eyelashes.........SWEET!!! I coloured the image with Poly and Koh pencils and then masked her to add the Halloween fence from Magnolia. My flower was created using a Bigz Sizzix die and I just scrunched and then inked the edges for definition. I managed to get hold of the new MS Goo punch last week and was amazed to find out that it cut through quite thick cardstock...... the doily lace punch definitely won't punch through anything more than paper!!! I used a mixture of Basic Grey papers and embossed the green paper with the Cuttlebug Pumpkin folder.
Well that's it for me today....... I spent the whole morning doing the housework and washing, so now I can spend and hour or two getting messy with paper and glue........ must have tea out of the way and be settled down for early evening TV though........ first live show on X-Factor tonight, soooooo can't wait for that......... and of course there's Strictly to watch too!!!! YAY!!!!
Thanks for stopping by today, TTFN and TFL!
