happy Birthday to my friend who I {j'adore}...


Happy weekend! I've got a brand spanking new technique challenge from Just Us Girls to share..

Find a great demo at splitcoast stampers on collage stamping.  Also, loving the inspiration from the Shabby Tea Room #96 (colors and sewing themed embellishment), the Ribbon Reel #19  (polka dots, pink, and ribbon/twine) and City Crafter Challenge #91 (black silhouette). 


This multi challenge card was also inspired by a dear friend's upcoming birthday!  She's stylish, beautiful inside and out, and I ADORE her!


Using the collage stamping technique I was able to add some pretty images from some of my favorite stamp companies to designer papers from My Mind's Eye that already had a collage-y look to them. 


I bought a 6 x 6 paper pad of the My Minds Eye Lost and Found Blush collection and guess what?  There are two sheets of everything so I'd love to share a set with one of my blog friends!  Leave a comment if you'd like a chance to win, leave a second comment if you are a follower for an extra chance to win.  This is a very pretty paper set, perfectly shabby chic!

Be sure and check out the lovely ladies of Just Us Girls for a ton of collage stamping inspiration!
Guest Designer for January...the talented Kylie Kueter!

Thanks so much for coming by!  And be sure to check out all the amazing challenges and talented design teams I linked above.
