I can't believe it's Thursday already! Where did this week go?!

This week's challenge on CCEE Stampers is to use that specialty paper you've been hoarding for that 'special project'. What special paper?! I'm not hoarding special paper.....oh, alright; I am hoarding some. ;) I like glitter paper. It's prrrretty. I buy it. I pet it. But I've never actually used it on a card! LOL

That's not the only challenge I managed to include in this card! (Love it when it all comes together like that!) Lately, while I've been blog hopping, I see a lot of cards being made for the A Spoon Full Of Sugar blog challenge. So I popped over there this past Tuesday to check out their challenge and it happens to be their one year anniversary this week. Their challenge is to create some kind of celebratory card. Easy peesy lemon squeezy. The sketch is from this week's Card Positioning Systems sketch CPS116. I was struggling with it until I remembered about the adhesive borders that matched my new favorite paper from K&Co. Perfect!

The stamp is one of Leanne Ellis's beautiful creations from Funky Kits. It's so sad that I don't own this stamp because she was fabulous to color in!! A dear friend of mine gave me some of these images a while back and I couldn't remember where I put them until last night. It's not like I live in a big apartment either - it's teeny! But I have all my crafting stuff jam packed under my table and the envelope they were in got a bit lost. I'm soooo glad I found them though because I think I have a new favorite! ;)

I added some stickles to the frills on the bottom of her dress, the bubbles coming out of the bottle and at the ends of her hair decoration. I also added a black Tiny Twinkle to the center of the flower in her hair. I really love how she turned out. So cute!

Remember when I said I had made some amazing friends on Splitcoaststampers?? Well, the same amazing friends got together and did something crazy!! Because of them, I am the proud owner of my very own CUTTLEBUG...and an OhioMary original! :)

I'm so looking forward to getting to know my new toy... and convincing The Man that I need some Nesties to go along with it! hahaha

Happy stamping everyone and I'll see you tomorrow!
