Need a Cuddle?

German Phrase of the Day: Wir hatten eine shone Zeit! = We had a nice time! So, who all came to the Prettie Party last night? Raise your hands! I had SUCH a great time. I'm a little tired this morning though, considering I was up partying from 2am until 6:30am! I know...I'm insane!! But, how could I miss the first Prettie Party?? Have you checked out the new stamps yet? No? What are you waiting for?!? We even had some celebrities at the party last night. Kim, The MFT Lady, and Emily, Queen Bella herself both popped in to say hi and offer their congrats to Christie on her gorgeous new stamps! Is this not the most awesome industry eveh?? I mean, how many competing companies do you know where the owners are all friends and truly supportive of one another?? You can tell it's a female dominated industry!!! I'm just so happy to be a part of this wonderful community of smart, talented, creative women - even if it is just as a happy consumer! :-)

For today's card I used the new Cuddle Me stamp set. Isn't Sophia just adorable? I really love the way her legs are crossed. My daughter often puts her boots on the wrong feet still - and someone once showed her that if she crossed her feet they would look right - so she does that all the time now!

For this card I used a SUPER simple layout! I scalloped the edge of my Basic Gray Lily Kate paper using my corner rounder, sponged all the edges with Ballet Blue ink, then layered that on a Ballet Blue standard A2 card. I stamped Sophia with Palette Noir ink onto Confetti White paper, then colored her in using an Aquapainter and my Watercolor Wonder Crayons. Next, using my Sakura Quickie glue pen, I put glue all over Sophia's teddy bear, then I added some Fun Flock! Oh my gosh is this stuff ever fun! Look at the close up photo and you can see the teddy bear is all fuzzy. Isn't that adorable?!? After Sophia was colored and flocked, I just layered her on some So Saffron, popped her on the card with some pop dots, stamped the sentiment from the set on the bottom and added some ribbon. All ready to send to some lucky person!
