Hey, stampin' sisters!!!

I finally got a chance to stamp again, and I just had to use my Paper Pretties SOTM (Angel Wings). Isn't she beautiful?! I also think this is the first time I have actually uploaded a sketch challenge on the day it was posted. LOL The sketch is SC201, and the color challenge CC191. I wouldn't usually put pink with red and green, but this doesn't look too bad. The colors were ruby red, old olive and pretty in pink (unless you have the new in colors -- I didn't -- then you were to use Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss).

I started out with the above CS choices, pulled out my BG Sugared dp, and there was the pretties pink and green paper in there. This paper reminded me of the snow dots embossing folder, as there were circles and squares all neatly placed beside one another like a quilt. So . . . had to grab that folder, too. The ruby red was run through my Sizzix with the snow dots folder, then old olive was placed as the second layer at the bottom, and pretty in pink with the dp layered on it. the image was then stamped, colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsoled. I had to add some sparkle to BLING IT UP like my AWESOME friend, Lee would!!!! *wink* and then added the sentiment and some more punched out snowflakes. The sparkly stuff is both Stickles and puffy white paint that had glitter in it. Hope to be back soon with some more great cards/ideas. Stay tuned! :)

Happy Stampin N Scrappin Ladies!!

Btw, I got a few more nestabilities in today!! If you aren't waiting on the Labels One and Two sets, I may be sending you an email about your order being sent. *fingers crossed they are here SOON!*

Ahh this is sweet :) Love that Angel!!

Kelly you asked on my blog where I got those cute little faces images?
They are prestamped A4 papers that you buy with 5 or 6 images on it. It is made by a Dutch Wholesale Company called Jalekro. is their website. Just email them and ask for them :) I think they will sell overseas as well. The prestamped images are drawn by Vera Smit and there are 4 different A4 papers full with them :)

Thanks for visiting my blog and saying nice things ;)
Hugs Ria
