Happy April 1st!

Happy April First!

No, I dont have some sick joke to pull on all of you. I can be cruel, but not that cruel. I like to pull jokes any other day, but today.. Got to keep people on their toes!

It is such a nice WARM day here in sunny Northern California! It is so nice to be outside for once, and not having to deal with the massive amounts of rain we have been having. This is like day 4 of this nice weather, and I hope it keeps up! Now if I could just keep the Little Miss (Diem) outside, that would be fantastic!


A couple nights ago... well about a week ago, I went to my friend Lena's house. We have not hung out in weeks!!! We made cards together, and we always like to challenge each other. My challenge was to use a BOMBSHELL stamp, and you have to use it in a PATRIOTIC way. :) So, this was my take on the challenge :)

The stamp set used was Bombshell Stamps RISE AND SHINE. Which is in my top 3 favorite sets! :) She looks so lovely just lounging around in her little hammock :)

All papers used are Recollections, the glittery star brads are also Recollections. I tend to hoard them. They are some of my favorite Embellishments! I also used Cuttlebug's Stars Embossing folder. It is also one of my favorites to use with my Bombshells.

This little lady was colored with Prismacolor (skin) and all the other details are from Stampin Up!
 I think what really helps her stand out on this card is the black border around her, and litterally she is popping off the page with a few mini pop dots. :) I love how she turned out.

And now... On to other business. :) This whole month of April at Bombshell Stamps is dedicated to Ms April herself Rachael at Rachael's Handmade Designs. I love this girl. Even though I have not met this amazing lady in person, only virtually she is crazy talented and such an amazing blessing in my life. She has some wicked talents. I wish I was half as talented as her! Please stop by her blog, and show her some lovin!!! She needs all the support she can get. Tell her that Bombshell Stamps Ms. June sent you her way!!!

AAAW YOU ARE WAY TOO SWEET!!! <3 :D Thank you!!!

I love this card you made! Did you emboss the stars on the background? They rock!! Also, I love how you cut away the excess white from this stamp and just used the main images. It adds so much. I should really try this out! Can't wait to see what else you've got up your sleeve! :) Cheers! :D
