Twinkling Tuesday: Sweetie

Hello dear friends. It's so nice to be back; I've missed you. I've been super busy over the last week and didn't have much time for stamping. But I'm looking forward to getting back into a schedule and getting things created and sharing them here with you!

It's Twinkling Tuesday and this week Madelynn is back with another great sketch for us. I usually struggle with embellishments but I knew as soon as I saw all those circles down the side what I wanted to do!


My card uses another of the flamingo images - Sweetie - from the May Release at 2RedBananas. In addition to the "Hi Sweetie" sentiment there is another that says "Congratulations" making this a very versatile set. This little sweetie makes me think of Grease 2. I love one of the later scenes where all the girls dress up to represent the months of the year. If you've never seen this sequel, I recommend it. I personally like it much more than the original!


I didn't bring a ton of supplies with me this trip to my in-laws. Just some Close to Cocoa, Baja Breeze and white cardstock, a DCWV paper pad, a few stamps/inkpads, some ribbon, a package of gems and markers. I actually even ran out of adhesive. UGH!

The cake was paper pieced and I tied some silk ribbon around the middle layer of panels too. These gems are really cool - they are aurora borealis so they just sparkle and shine and flash all sorts of colors. I wish you could see that on the screen!

Be sure to visit all the other Twinklettes. Heather Schlatter is our featured Twinklette this week so you definitely need to leave her some love. We also are saying good-bye to Jennifer and Bonnie. They have more DT commitments in the coming months and I'll miss them so. But I'll still be viewing their creations and wish them all the best. And I want to say "hi" and "welcome" to our newest Twinklette, Lisa Slusser! Be sure to visit her blog and tell her the same! She joined last week but I didn't get to welcome her!

The Twinklettes:
Have a beautiful day girls!!

i can't imagine trying to make cards with so little. my mind doesn't work well under those circumstances. I am always thinking 'I wish I had...' great job. Ive never seen Grease 2, ill have to check it out. if DH's contract is settled without striking, i will pay for a netflix type service and get tons of movies this summer.
