Who: You, of course, and ALL of your friends
What: A Birthday Bash
Where: If It's Groovy
When: January 4-10, 2010
Now, you can most definitely check out my blog on the 4th for a challenge and a special, surprise prize package. I am out of state currently, so there's been limited blog access for me.
But I will be travelling home on the 5th and will be showing you a project on the 4th that's birthday themed for sure. Please take a minute and visit If It's Groovy, it's a wonderful site and I'm sure you'll have a fantastic time! It's full of really talented people.
Happy Creating and Happy Holidays!

Okay, and seriously, if you take this class, you pay one fee and can do it for-EVER! (the word 'forever' is in my head like in that movie 'The Sandlot' where the kids are talking about something ominous, but obviously in this class it's not ominous, but more like a hyperbole--you know, exaggeration for effect). There are digi-downloads for hybrid or digi scrappers, printables and prompts every day. Yes, EVERY day. It's seriously a really cool class and I started looking forward to it. I'm allowing myself to think it's awesome (cue Grinch music and see my heart grow a few sizes...).
I thought I'd show you a pair of my element pages. These were acrylic clear pieces, part of an album from Pat Catans. I simply covered them with some of the MM Tinsel paper and went to town. They will have something on the pages, probably a picture or a fond memory (left the back blank so that I could do something with journalling and it wouldn't show through). The red paper has holly on it, and there are even glittery berries. Yay! The green paper reminds me of something from the MM Passport line. Oh, and there are some lovely bits from the Vintage line I got at Michaels from MM on there, spells out 'Fun'. I hope to get some envelopes, maybe some other little things there, too.
Did you know that when I was in school I thought Wednesday was the most perfect day ever? Because it was halfway from the weekend and halfway to the weekend. It was perfect. And Ildi Co. day is just as cool as that!
Stickers: Making Memories holiday line (Last year, at Target!)
Punch: EK Success Corner Rounder (also at Target!)
I used a digital file from TwoPeasinaBucket (Jen Allyson) called Cut Out Card. This was featured on katrina werner's blog a while back, but as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted it. The card can be cut out on nearly any digital cutter, or it can be cut out by hand. The red cardstock was cut out, and so was the piece of white cardstock that had the digital stamp on it.
All and all, it was a lot of fun, and I've already gotten a few people interested in it at work. Thank you very much for stopping by, happy creating!

I have a card I'm really happy about to reveal to you, featuring a brand spankin' new Ildi Co. Digi Stamp image.
And I shall be revealing it to you, my blogging friends, tomorrow evening. I won't say too much about it, but I will say that this features 2 of my favorite Ildi Co. types of characters.
Now, if you've read my blog, you should be able to guess what types of characters I like best, although ALL of Ildi's images are great. I challenge you to guess what characters my card features. You can check out the Ildi Co store to guess--whoever guesses correctly will be entered to get a postcard from me during my upcoming vacation!!!
You have until I post the image of my card tomorrow night--let's say 10 PM eastern time. Good luck!
Hint: The image is not yet up on the store, but if you check my past Ildi Co. posts and cross reference it with the subject names (ex: Emotibots, Cuddles, etc.), you might be able to guess. One of them, I've posted quite a bit of.
Also, I will go ahead and set this up so that it stays on top for a day--good luck! I have a few other posts scheduled.

I had the best of intentions, but a glass casserole dish exploded in my hands (and on dinner last night, darn it). Still fighting the cold, but it almost feels like it's nearly gone (shh! Don't say it too loudly). Fighting with Direct TV, who offered me three months of free service, but apparently didn't take care of that and now I'm being billed.
Oh, 'Heathers' with Winona Ryder and Christian Slater is on tonight, so I'm going to watch that, finish unpacking boxes and then prepare for a lot of sleep this weekend.
Jack (Night Light Collection, October Afternoon)...I love the back of this paper--the paper-y looking part. Really wanted to try this out and do SOMETHING with it, maybe an altered book.
Will keep you updated. I know I've had problems tracking this particular paper down, and I've never tried October Afternoon before, so this will be interesting.
This paper kinda reminds me of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation when they go to pick out a tree. In a good way, with less digging, I guess.

So it’s Ildi Co Wednesday… Yay!
I’m still sick, a little, in the house by myself and have a bunch of stuff to clean, so that’s a little bit why this was late.
I decided that I was going to devote a little more time to sketch-related pursuits and challenges, thanks to the lovely ‘Blogging for Scrapbookers’ and so I decided what better way to showcase an adorable Ildi Co stamp than with a sketch. So here it is!
This is using a K and Company trim, Copic markers (Dandy Boy and Lolita Girl) and an Stampendous sentiment. Here is the original sketch from Sketchy Thursdays:
I switched it up a little bit, but wanted to bring out the colors and the ‘happy’ of things. I’m intending to hide this card around the house—I will be leaving for california on the 15th and will be gone until the 5th or so of January.
