Itty Bitty card


Happy Wednesday! Halfway through the week already, time sure does fly!! I can't believe our vacation is in less than 3 months!



So did you think I made a teeny tiny card? lol -nope. I made a regular size card using Pink Cat Studio's Itty Bitty Betty -






Isn't she way too cute?? She's Betty Bug -- I just LOVE the Itty Bitties, I think I have *almost* all of them. I will tell you a secret -- just between us -- it took 4 tries to get this colored right! I won't go into the details but I think I finally got it right. The image is stamped on Cryogen Shimmery White & colored with Prismas & Goo Gone. Lots of Stickles for some glittery goodness. Papers are Basic Grey Nook & Pantry --  using up those older packs -- sentiment is Amuse -- I used the sketch from this week Sketch Saturday -- & VOILA -- a cheerful, springy card :)





I don't think you can see the shimmer of the paper but I think you can see the Stickles -- looks kinda like I spilled the whole jar, doesn't it? LOL I do love my bling :)

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday -- sketch
Make It Monday -- anything goes
Paper Sundaes -- anything goes




**GAH** I just realized as I was posting this on SCS that I forgot to do my usual shading around the background of the image. I tell you, I'm really slipping. The other day it was the flower on the baby dragon's head, & today it's the background. **shaking head**


We had a GREAT time at Jelly Belly on Friday. I left work early & we spent about 2 hours there -- & $26! We were going to stop at the outlet mall near there afterwards -- but -- well that's a funny story that I will tell you when I post the pictures in the next day or two. Here's a preview of what we spied in the Jelly Belly store --




YUMMO! We were wondering if the toothpaste flavor was so popular that they couldn't keep up with the demand? I'll tell you more about the *interesting* flavors we were able to sample !
