The Sisterhood

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I envy those who have a sister. I grew up watching my best friend and her older sister interact and I just loved the closeness they had. I wished it for myself many times.

When I started participating in the amazing community of SCS a little over a year ago and really got serious about stamping, I met an amazing group of women who make me feel like I have the sisters I always wanted. These girls support and encourage one another as well as bring the tissues when they're needed and baseball bats if they're needed too! I love their friendship and I couldn't imagine continuing to stamp and create without their support and encouragement. So girls, you know who you are, this card is for you! *mwah*

This week's Twinkling Tuesday challenge is a Use It one. Can you guess what it is? Yep, bling!! Lots of it! So I pulled all my adhesive rhinestones and rhinestone brads to create this card.

Can you believe that there is not a lick of stamping on this card at all! Nothing! That image is a cotton scraps piece from Crafty Secrets (found at Hanna Stamps). It's actually printed on cotton fabric! It's a really neat idea, but I'm afraid I didn't do it quite justice with this card. I should have pinky sheared the edges for more of a quilted look.

Check out how the other Twinkling girls have 'bling-o-fied' their cards today by stopping by their blogs. You can find links to them in the blog list on the left. Today's featured Twinky is none other than the uber talented and mama of Madelynn with the mostest - Jessica Diedrich! If you'd like to play along and bling-o-phy a card, upload it to SCS or PCP and use the keyword MTTSC28 so the Twinkettes can leave you some love!

Thanks for stopping by today! Tomorrow I want to show you the card I made for my husband for Father's Day. :) See you then.
