Gotta stop doing this. . .

waking up early-ish to stamp. Or maybe I *should* keep doing it. This seems to be the only way I can get things done lately!



Color combo is inspired by the Prima flower jar I dug into this morning, looking or something to stick in the corner. I grabbed some flowers, grabbed a big brad, found a scrap of green (kiwi kiss?) paper from Stampin’ Up!, colored in the dots messily, and then looked through the piles on my desk to find a stamp to use that would work for this week’s sketch from Charmaine.  This cute Ketto was unearthed first, so I stamped, colored, added some glitter (swirlies were purely to fill in space and make her look “skippy”. . .and ’cause I didn’t know what sentiment to slap on there today), colored my black and white gingham with a Copic, added some Bazzill edges to mimic the edge on her skirt, and stuck it all together.

If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done, right?

Before you get going on your Friday, visit Cami, Charmaine, Lori, Laurie, and Sharon and say hi and gush a little over what they’ve made. . . then go off and have a HAPPY WEEKEND!!



Go see it. . . seriously awesome stuff in there!

    I thought once you started working for SCS as your real job, all you’d do was sit around and stamp… (*guffaw!* couldn’t resist…) This is a stunner, Jenn! 🙂

    Oh this is so so awesome! I love how you shadowed her with the sparklies!

    And, whenever/wherever you can get crafting time is the best time to do it. If you can convince yourself to get out of the bed – more power to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Love the card Jenn, I actually went to the Stamping Bella store in Toronto with my sister Jacqui, Vicki Garrett, and Kristi Ferro, and some other Victopia girls when I was home last month.

    I gave you an award on my blog!

    This is probably the most adorable card I have seen in a long time. I love the “skippy” effect. Most ingenious.
