There was also the added twist - to include background stamping...
Used two shades of gray on this one ... Smokey Shadow and Soft Stone ...
... and silk ribbon for the bow - out of my little coveted hoard :0)!
Thank you so much to the ladies at embellish - it's always a stretch - and always fun to play along!
Now for the other part of the post :0)
Keva - sweetly gave my blogaroo a Cherry On Top award yesterday - what a surprise! Wooohoooo! Thank you Keva!!!
Now apparently, I have to share something about myself, show a photo and pass the award along to 5 wonderful bloggers ....
I'm a non-fiction lover, am 5'1" tall and have a horrible time finding clothing for the 'vertically challenged', absolutely ADORE cheesecake (it should be one of the 5 basic foodgroups) and find vermicomposting fascinating ... and yes, really do call my hubby "The Hunkadorus" .... :0)
Which brings me to the picture...
That is the *REAL THING* caught in his natural environment!!
Now to pass this along ... to:
Aimes - Uber-Talented, Queen of CAS, TOTALLY sweet and encouraging into the bargain!!
Dana - It was no surprise to see Dana's name coming up again and again during the last Blog Hop - she has inspired people all over Blogland with her artistic creations and willingness to share know-how!
Rhonda - who has a great eye for using things in wonderful ways ....
Christina - Who has an amazing eye for design - and the polish she finishes her cards with is second to none!
Sue Ann - Who is super creative and talented - and just makes the whole world a happier place!!
Big smiles everyone! Have a super-wonderful day!
