RoP Challenge #6 & Blog Candy Teaser...

Yay!!! It's the weekend! It's extra-special for me because today is Mania day!! Heather, Jess, Janna and I will be at Archiver's this afternoon & evening until they kick us out! I can't wait, I think I might be worse than my DS #1 waiting to go to Chuck E. Cheese, LOL. Well, it *has* been 6 weeks since our last girls' night so I guess I am entitled. :-)

But first, today's card! I think this is my favorite Whiff of Joy image. She's just so sweet! I made this card for the Roses on Paper Challenge #6 - Love & Friendship. The little sentiment is from Pink Cat Studio {I love Pink Cat - I buy mine at Limelight Papercrafts}, it was too naked without a LITTLE something there. I also used the Viva la Verve February #1 sketch on this - here it is:

My embossing twist is the Cuttlebugged Swiss Dots piece under the main image. I had to mirror-image flip this one, for some reason I didn't like the girl on the right side of the card. The pearls kinda blend in with the patterned paper, but they are there! I pulled the colors on this from the inspiration piece from this week's Twinkling Tuesday challenge.

I need to go finish packing up my stuff for tonight's stamp-a-thon, but before I got, a TEASER for you...

Tomorrow, I will be having some very cool blog candy, along with an overdue review of a very fun book I recently read. You know me, the only thing I love {almost as much} as stamping is reading!! But what does my stamping blog have to do with a book review, you may ask? I will give you a hint...a great {fiction} story detailing the adventures of a papercrafting genius, complete with drama, intrigue, laugh-out-loud jokes and CRAFTING TIPS. Oh yes! Check back tomorrow for the full reveal, and as I promised, *very good* blog candy. Thanks for stopping by today!

Supplies for card: Stamps from Whiff of Joy and Pink Cat Studio. Pink Pirouette and Handsome Hunter c/s from Stampin' Up!, GP 110# white. Basic Grey Urban Prairie DP. Pink grosgrain from RABOM. Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots folder, Classic Oval nestabilities and tiny tags dies. Kaisercraft pearls in "Snow". Scalloped border punch from SU, Koh-i-Noor pencils, gamsol and blending stumps, Copic markers and dimensionals.

Beautiful card. I can't wait to see what the book is. It sounds wonderful. I also love to read almost as much as I love to stamp.
