Hanna Stamps release party

Ok - I'm a sucker for release parties and challenges. This past week - Hanna Stamps had a release party too!!!! SO - I had to play for a chance to win a free stamp set. I didn't win - but had fun playing!

I don't get any constructive critisism anymore now that we live here. I live so far away from all my craft friends and haven't made any new ones here yet. It's kind of sad to work on crafts by yourself - not as fun!

I'm going backwards in my pictures. The first is actually the second challenge. The challenge was the make a card using flowers. I used the Hanna Stamps "Sweet Celebrations" stamp set. I love this Hanna!!! She looks so cute with her short little bob (I could never pull that off). I used my new Coluzzle system to cut the circles out of Bazzill bling paper. I love the shine on the bazill bling! I added a Bazill flower and wa-la - here she is! I definitely need to get a photo box of some sort to photograph my cards- the colors in the picture look a lot better in person!
This card was for the first challenge - to make a card using "fall colors" because it's getting close to fall for everyone (except me - seems to be getting hotter every day here). I LOVE this card! It turned out so cute (I think so). I used another Hanna stamp for this one called "Rain day". I used my copics to color her, then layered her on some SU cardstock and used my Tiny Bubbles cuttlebug folder to emboss the background. I didn't know if I would like the color combo until it was all put together - I think it looks pretty good.
I hope you (my one reader) enjoys my cards!!!!! Thanks Jana for reading/commenting on my blog!!!!! I miss you! Oh - mom commented on a card too - thanks mom! You're a little biased though, you think everything I do is good....
