Day 9: Nine Ladies Dancing!

Saturday, December 6, 2008

Sorry for this post being a little late today - I've come down with a cold and I've been walking around in a cloudy daze these last couple of days. Still, since my inlaws have my sweet girl today, I snuck in some stamping time for a special reason - over on Papercraft Planet, Hanna Stamps is sponsoring Day 9 of their Twelve Days of Christmas challenge.

The challenge wasn't to include 9 ladies dancing (although Adela's did - wow!), but you do need to include a lady on your card. I chose to use the sweet teen from the 'Slumber Party' set just released this week.

Sorry if the photo looks a bit glarey - I tweaked it in some software, but my brain can't decide if it's an issue or not! (My brain has switched off today....I'm surprised I can even type today!)

I stamped Hanna once on some watercolor paper, and again on some Whisper White. Then I colored her up on the water color paper with my SU inks and stamped the background of the other with the hearts stamp from the 'Read My T' set. The I cut Hanna out with my precision scissors (which I find is the best to use) and inked the edges with a black sharpie. Popped her on some dimensionals, and layered her over the image I stamped on the whisper white.

The patterned paper is by Sandylion and I found it at my local scrapbook store. The sentiment is also from the 'Read My T' set. I used my circle punches to create the tag and adhered to the ribbon using a jump ring (found at Michaels). If you can, you should play along because Hanna Stamps is putting up a prize for the winner. I believe the challenge ends at midnight EST, so you might wanna get cracking! :D

Hope you're all having a wonderful Saturday. I'm planning to watch the 'Sex in the City' movie while creating a photo book online for a Christmas present. Toodles!

Well this is just the sa-weetest evah!!
Speaking from a Texas "Sudafed head" at the moment, I'm wondering how you manage to continue to WOW us with this darling stuff through the "fog" of the "cold"! Kudos & tissues to you, dear!

Oh, Sandra! I hope you are feeling better soon! I think rest would be the best Rx at this point! You never stop! LOL
This is such a cute card and your coloring is to die for! Totally cool! Enjoy SATC!!!! If the scene following Charlotte's shower in Mexico doesn't get you laughing and feeling better, nothing will! LOL
