Smile ... It's Purple and Blingy!

Hello!  Sorry you haven't seen me this week.  I told you I would try to get the next class samples done over the weekend so I could show them to you on Monday.  Well, I did work on them and completely finished two of the three.  The third one is almost finished, except for one important detail.  You see there is a new honeycomb pad color combo that I "thought" I bought at the store, just for this class.  Well, come to find out, I bought solid red instead of the red/white combo.  Now, the red would work fine, but I just have to use the new product on my card!  So, when I get what I need to finish it, I will be able to show you all three of my class cards for October.  Until then, I do have one new card to show you.  On Monday night I took a little break from my class prepping to make a birthday card for my stepdaughter.  I inked up one of my favorite stamps ...that adorable bunny sitting in the flowers from The Cat's Pajamas.  Which leads me to wonder why I just have to have so many different stamps when I often use the same ones over and over?  Well, if you love this hobby as much as I do, you know there is no one answer to this question.  Let me show you my card.  Enjoy!

The sketch was a CASE from one of my favorite designers, Jen delMuro.  I went hunting for the correct post so I could give credit to her.  Check out her card here.  Oh, one note about all the purple ... Stephanie, the recipient, loves purple and I figure everyone likes bling, especially on their birthday!  Right?  Those blingy flowers were ones I got at least a year ago.  They had a yellow rhinestone in the middle.  And I thought ... why couldn't I change the rhinestone and make them work for this card?  Maybe I will be more apt to use them now, with this very simple idea!  What do you think?  Does this bunny in purple and bling make you smile?

One of the ladies from church has asked me to make a special card for her, so if I get that done before Saturday, I will be back with that one.  And I will see you Saturday for the share.

Happy Stamping!
