Happy Saturday

Made a few cards recently.  A few with the new Lawn Fawn Stamps.  OMG.  These stamps are fabulous.  They stamp so crisp!!!!  I'll share these cards over the next few days or so.

Oct/Nov 2010 issue - Lawn Fawn stamps review

The dictionary page and fairy card are from the lovely Diana's etsy shop Design By Diana.   

I misted the dress form stamp with both a green and a pink.  I love how it came out.  The image is stamped on a file folder so it accepted the mist well without warping.  I just discovered the Autumn Leaves Stampology ink made for clear stamps and I have to say it works very nicely.  I'd been having problems with inconsistent saturation of color when using both StazOn and Stampin' Up! ink on clear stamps. 

Details:  Sew Lovely stamp by Lawn Fawn Stamps, Autumn Leaves Stampology ink, ephemera from Design By Diana etsy shop, Cosmo Cricket tiny alpha, Prima pearl, Maya & Glimmer Mists, Stampin' Up! cardstock, file folder, thread, unknown velvet ribbon.

And since it's Saturday and Saturdays are for most people happy, feel-good days, I'm going to acknowledge two blog awards I received just recently.  Amazingly they both came in on the same day!  Talk about a feel-good day!  I'm so honored to have touched and been touched by these two amazing women:

Kandi from Krafty Kandi Krafts gave me the Beautiful Blogger Award. 

And can you believe, THIS is what she said:  "...I have scrappers envy when it comes to Heidi's awesome scrapbook pages. She does things I'd never dare to do, let alone even think of! She is sassy and spunky and it totally shows on her pages. If I could aspire to be a better scrapbooker I would start with trying to scraplift some of her totally rad pages."

I am BLOWN AWAY by this.  Humbled.  WOW.  Kandi just validated every creative thing I've ever dared to share.  Thank you SO MUCH Kandi. 

OK, for this award, I'm supposed to share 10 things you may not know about me and then pass this along to 10 bloggers who have inspired me.  Well, I've got a room full of cleaning and organizing to get to today so I'm going to leave this little bit until later, maybe tomorrow.  ;oD

As mentioned, on the SAME day (wow!), the beautiful Miss Ally left me the Sunshine Award.  Poor Miss Ally.  I stalk her.  She has just the sweetest spirit, makes the most rad stuff, and has the most beautiful (and photogenic) family, including their newest addition the Hankster, who is just so sweet you want to eat him up!   Again, I'll pass along the award later when I'm more organized.  (OK, I'll do it later...You know it.  I know it.  I'm never going to be more organized!) 

Moving right along...a little more business to attend to. 

Today is the last day to submit an entry for the Sketchy Thursdays April Guest Design Team Member!  And wouldn't you know it, the winner will get the  Ninja Addicts' Three Little Birds kit designed by both the beautiful Miss Ally and one of Sketchy's newest Design Team Members the amazing Miss Nely!!!!!

Also, today is Jenn's birthday so she's offering a 30% discount on all order at the Torendi shop over $30 for her big 3-oh!  Hop on over and check it out.   (And don't forget to leave her some birthday love!)

Oh, I'm soooo using this image for my bday in a couple weeks, LOL!

OK, I think that's it for today.  Whew!

Hope your Saturday is shaping up as lovely as mine.
