A Catchy Name

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Hellooooo Everyone!

If you haven't discovered already, CCEE Stampers is an group of seriously talented stampers that got together to create challenges for themselves and anyone that wished to play along. One of those challenges is what they like to call the 'Catchy Name Featured Stamper' (CNFS) challenge. This is where they pick a stamper on SCS that has a catchy name and they make cards with that theme in mind. This week's CNFS is Jessica Rone AKA Knightrone!

I don't own any knight stamps, but over the Christmas holidays I was given a card kit by my dear friend on SCS, Karen. (Thank you Karen!) The stamp is from Elzybells, which I have none of either, but they are super cute!! I used the SU cardstock, the pink Basic Grey patterned paper and the ring embellishments from Karen's kit. I added the gold patterned paper and the ribbon to pull the whole card together.

I really like how this turned out! It's not your typical wedding card, so I'd probably give it to someone who just announced their engagement instead. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who was recently engaged. I will have to sit in my box of ready-to-send cards for now...until my friend Karen has some news of her own! :D


Blog Candy Alert!

One of my favorite designers is Kim Teasdale, of Paper In The Works fame. I spend copious amounts of time drooling over her cards (no, not literally!) But shame on me because I've only just noticed that she has some INCREDIBLE blog candy up for grabs. How incredible?!? Try 13 sets of stamps kind of incredible!! Seriously! You'd better hurry if you would like to win them because Kim's drawing a winner tomorrow!
