It's a girl thing!

Products Used: Martha Stewart star edge punch, Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Peeled Paint, Papers by Creative Memories, We R Memory Keepers (White Out Collection), and Sassafras (Sweet Marmalade Collection), Stamp is 80s Kaylee by Some Odd Girl, and the butterfly and gems are from my stash.

This post feels a little rushed this morning since it's going to be a BUSY BUSY day, and I have to get moving to leave within the hour :)

I made this card... well I'm not really sure what it will become. But I just won this stamp off the Fab N Funky challenge from last week and I LOVED it so much I just HAD to use it!! It's a digi and what's neat about digis is being able to resize them to any size I want. I will def be playing around with that feature this weekend :)

A couple challenges out there are using your "favorites" this week as inspiration. My favorites change along with my mood (so pretty constant hehehe). I have always loved stars - a little obsessed - and I really enjoy teal and lime green this summer.

I edged all my papers in Tim Holtz lime green peeled paint distress ink and used a lot of bright colors to go along with 80s Kaylee being all dressed up in her outfit. The card is so fun and girly that I feel it'll make a good teen b-day card some day. Who knows.

There is some blog candy over at A Thousand Sheets blog. And she is actually giving away a THOUSAND SHEETS OF PAPER!! hahaha, there are even pictures!! Go check it out HERE.
