LiLi's Stuffed Bunny Wall Hanging

 Hello everyone. I am here to share with you my latest project for Inky Impressions Rubber Stamps.

For todays project I made a Wall Hanging using the adorable LiLi's Stuffed Bunny stamp.  

I found this adorable wooden heart at hobby and new it would be perfect for one of Inky Impressions wonderful stamps. I am super happy with how this turned out. 
I painted the wooden heart with a bubblegum pink paint then added my paper to the front of the heart. 
I then glued some beautiful bling mesh from Karals001 Etsy store and gorgeous pink lace from frog feathers on etsy around the edges and fussy cut out LiLi's Stuffed Bunny. Added some pop up foam dots to the back of her and centered her to the center of the heart. I also added some prima say it with pearls  to the top right and lower left side of the heart and used recollection roses.

We have a new challenge today on the Inky Impressions Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is "Shape it up." You can use anything but a square. I hope to see you all there.

Good morning everyone. 
I am super excited. Awhile back I ran across a stamp store that I completely fell in love with their images and a couple of months ago they had a DT call. Well I thought "What the heck, I know there are so many wonderfully talented ladies applying but I will give it a shot." Now everyone that knows me knows that I am my own worse critic. I am so hard on myself with everything I create.


Well, I received the email from them that had me jumping up and down in my seat. I had been chosen to be a part of their extremely talented DT.   I was able to finally tell you all a couple of days ago, but wouldnt you know that blogger wanted to be a stinker and not let me post. lol. 

If you havent seen their wonderful stamps, head on over to their store. They have so many adorable stamps and each and every stamp made is "Extra Deep Etched" on quality red rubber for a crisp impression everytime.  Also all Inky Impression Rubber Stamps are sold with EZ Mount so they are ready to ink up when you get them. 

Inky Impression Challenges is a weekly challenge that runs from Wednesday to Tuesday the following week and there are no limitations to the number of challenges you can combine on your project. 
This week the Challenge is "Anything Goes". 
 I hope to see you all there.

Chipboard Mini

Happy New Years Everyone! 

Today I want to share with you why I have been MIA for awhile now. As most of you know, I moved across the country a year ago last Nov.  When I lived in California, my dad lived 4 hours away from us so we  didnt get to see him very often and now, I am not sure when we will be able to visit. So I put together this mini album for him using some of my favorite pictures of his grandson. This is only my 2nd mini I have ever made so any suggestions would be wonderful. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year and may the new year bring everyone many blessings.
