PMS Blog Hop & Party


Good morning girls!! I hope you had a wonderful sleep! I can't help it, I'm pre-writing this and curling up in bed is the next thing on my list! I hope I can sleep though - I'm so excited about the PMS blog hop today. I can't wait to see all the wonderful creations. Plus all the chatter I know will be going on, the challenges and the announcement of the design team.


If you've made it here from Sara's blog then you are right on track, enjoying all the eye candy in the pre-party hop! If not, head over to the PMS blog - you won't want to miss any of the stops I know!!


I used Kirsten for my card today. I *think* she might be my favorite fairy. At least until I stamp another one. Or the next release. To be honest, they will all switch rank on a regular basis I believe!!

I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and then watercolored her using my SU stamp pads and Fantastix. I really like those little sticks but I'm not sure I'm completely sold on them yet!
I used my new Spica glitter pen to add sparkles to her fairy breath (I saw Tina do that the other day and thought it was a great idea) and her cheeks. Her wings and her fairy curl have Stickles on them. My favorite little touch though is the dandelion which has been coated in Fun Flock!

If you are just now hearing about Paper Makeup Stamps, they are wonderfully, deeply etched red rubber and closely trimmed. LOVE THAT!! Plus Katie offers them in bare rubber or already mounted on EZ Mount. I ordered Chelly on EZ Mount and the other fairies in bare rubber. Even using Kirsten in bare rubber she stamped beautifully and cleanly. LOVE THAT TOO!

The layout for my card is from this week's VivaLaVerve sketch. This is actually the second card base I made for my Kirsten image. I had such grief with this layout which is crazy because it's pretty simple!

Thanks for hopping on over today! I hope my card brought a smile to your face! It's time to send you on over to Shaela's blog. I lifted the following information from the PMS blog for your reference here on the party details:

{snip} Here's a breakdown of our party plans!

4:00 - Playin' some games, givin' away some goods...

4:30 - Christi will issue challenge number 2!

5:00 - The Design Team will be announced!!!
