Your Next Stamp & a Giveaway!!

Wow can you believe it is August already??? I have been anxiously awaiting for this month to get here because I have some exciting news to share! Ready??? Oh I am so thrilled to let ya'll know that I am guest designing with Your Next Stamp this month! When Karen asked me to be guest designer way back in March, I almost fell off my chair with joy! It has really been hard to not say anything!

Our first challenge this month is to create a card or project that uses the colors: Orange, Yellow and light and dark shades of Pink. So I grabbed this adorable Fairy Fhiona stamp from YNS and this is what I came up with:

My card today is a 4x4. Papers used are Bazzill and My Mind's Eye. I colored sweet Fhiona using my copics E00, E000, YR01, YR14, YR 09, Y06, Y08 and C5. Fhiona is up on foam tape and the layer she is on is also up on foam tape. I used my EK success punch to frame out the sentiment "Hugs" from Mary's Cardz TV Stamps called Encouraging Thoughts. The sentiment originally said "Big Hugs" but I only inked up the "hugs" part. I added a few strips of washi tape and used my MS border punch to give a little decorative edge to the card. I added some gold glitter to her wings and finished off the card by adding a butterfly from SEI, flower and brads from Prima.

How would you like a chance to win this cute adorable Fairy Fhiona stamp??? All you have to do for your chance to win her is become a follower of my blog and leave me a comment telling me what your favorite summer activiity is in August and I will announce the winner from random.org on Monday August 6th.
