PPP Sequin Shaker Blog Hop!!!

Woohoo!!!  I made it, just barely, but I made it none the less!  I was out of town this weekend ( on a super fun girls trip with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law! ), and wasn't able to join in the Pretty Pink Posh Blog Hop until today, sooooo glad the deadline went through tonight.  I made this super fun birthday card to share with you, which was also based on the Mama Elephant GD Challenge...

Shaker cards are so fun and simple to make!  Instead of using acetate I wanted to have a softer look to my shaker, by using vellum, and I love the results.  You will find my favorite Pretty Pink Posh clear sequins inside, as well as scattered in front of my card.  I have used the Mama Elephant Sets Say What and Bling, hope you have enjoyed!

The Alley Way Stamps Sneaky Peeky time... YES!

Hello!  It's one of my favorite times of the month when I get to tempt and tease you with the new Alley Way Stamp Sets, woo hoo!!!  Today I'm sharing a peek of Baby Talk...

I've also used the paint swishes from True Colors to accent these adorable sentiments.  I absolutely love the feet image too, because there is nothing cuter than little baby feet!  Love it!

Now you must stop by The Alley Way Stamp Blog to see the other sneaks of this sweet stamp set, and don't forget to leave a comment while you are there for your chance to WIN this set for yourself!

Live Your Life In Color... And a DT CALL

Today I am showing this card over on The Alley Way Stamps Blog...

Stamps Used:

I made the background with the hopes of it looking like framed art.  I started by coloring randomly with my distress markers, and then created an overlay with vellum and the Star of the Show Stamp Set.  I then "framed" it with gold cardstock.  I felt like it needed someone to enjoy the artwork, so I added that sweet little bird image.  Hope you like it!

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everyone: Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp: Clean and Simple

In other news The Alley Way Stamps is having a DT Call right now and we would love to see you enter!
