Pondering Petunia Tag-And the WINNER!

Well, it was really fun reading all the posts. I wish everyone could have won, but the magic number picked belonged to CHAR!

The new magazine sounds interesting. It would be fun to win it, and the kit is adorable. Thanks for this chance to win.

So Char, send me your address and we'll get that prize kit out to you this week before I head to Ankeny, Iowa.

Yep, I'll be at Memory Bound for classes this weekend. Hope to see you there! Looking forward to seeing all my wonderful friends again!!!!

When I was in Elmhurst at Creative Cuts and Crafts...I snagged some stamps from the delightful Dyan Reaveley. This set is Pondering Petunia.

Fun????? Oh, yeah!!

Then I used Julie Balzer's template to add the chicken wire, stars, and dots with paint dabbers, Pitch Black and Malted Milk.

They just got a TON of templates in at Inspiration Emporium from The Crafter's Workshop hereAnd $5 shipping within the U.S.

Oh, and the Tim Holtz District Market totes are in there, too !

I added Little Labels stamps from Tim. And of course some Distress Inks here and there....can't work without DISTRESS INKS!!!!

Stamp the hand and Petunia on manila cardstock and cut out.

The TomBow markers added all the color to Petunia.

Her hair, that turned out great, is Sticky Back Canvas from Claudine Hellmuth. It's leftover from another project I painted and sprayed. I just frayed it out and it worked great for my Punky Lookin' Gal.

Boots, Glasses and Lipstick are all highlighted with Turquoise, Burgundy, and Tiara (Glitz) Stickles.

Layer it onto some black chipboard, add some pen marks, and add cutouts with pop dots for dimension.

That's it for today. Kits are all packed and ready to go.

Going to go sit on the sunporch, read the Help, drink coffee, and watch the leaves fall.

Be well, and be good to each other. We're all we have that matters.

Erin Elizabeth and I at WICKED.....she loved it. And that made my very, very happy!
