A blog award...and more kissing!

Hello there! I almost forgot to share a blog award which was given to me by Deirdre my sweet Flickr friend from Ireland. It's the Liebster Blog award.


The idea behind this award is to give it to people whose talent you admire, but feel they don't get the recognition which they deserve. Since I've been tagged by Deirdre--thank you!--I'm posting the award and I'm choosing 3 people who I so admire.

Cheryl -- The Ink Trap
Virginia -- Yes, Virginia

Please visit these blogs and you'll know why I admire their creativity and talent.

And here's one last "kissing" card, made with almost the same stamps, just using different ink colors.




Stamps: All Hero Arts
Ink: Ranger distress inks, Hero Arts shadow ink,     Colorbox chalk ink
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Paper Accents
Other: Fiskars border punch, corner chomper, rayon seam binding, pearls, pop dots





Here's a close up of the image. I inked up In the Garden with Pool shadow ink, and Lace Background with Sour Apple chalk ink. This is the result of "kissing" them together.

The striped background is Hero Arts' Large Canvas Stripes, and the sentiment is from an Archiver's exclusive set.

My next technique to tackle is...smooching!


Thanks for stopping by! I'm doing some major cleaning and found tons of goodies to share. Can you say "giveaway"? Stay tuned......
