Happy President's Day everyone (for those here in the US)!! My kids are STILL home from school and so is hubby today--LOL! Valentine's Day went something like this for us....I slept in, James made me breakfast in bed, I worked, we had lunch, I worked, we had pizza for dinner, I worked some more, hee hee---I basically worked 16 hours yesterday getting ready for 3 Blog Hops this week, new stamp releases and the reveal of the Dirty Dozen Gallery at SCS--whew! It was a VERY long day and I hope to keep the work to a minimum today so I can play a bit--it's of course supposed to snow here again tomorrow, but hopefully only 3 inches this time. Hubby is heading to Whitetail Ski Resort to ski for the day--that's my VDay present to him---I do not like winter so skiing is not my sport :o) Enough chitter chatter for ya--I have a ton of stuff to get thru on this post so make sure and scroll all the way to the bottom (there's some Blog Candy hidden down there too, hee hee)!

-Today, Blog Candy starts for the fabulous NEW Release from Elisabeth Bell for SCACD on the store blog HERE! The release will be this coming Friday!
Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE along with how you can play along for prizes! I LOVE creating pop-up scenes, they're fun to do but they are definitely a labor of love! I really wanted to use some of my stamps from the Magnolia "Pet Collection" that hadn't seen ink yet. All of these stamps are available at Magnolia-licious--for the front of my card I used the "Jungle Car". I used some old K&Co vellum that had postcards and stamps on it, cut them out and arranged them on the front. The sentiment (just got this a few weeks ago--perfect timing) is from Hero Arts and distressed all my edges with my Tonic Distress Tool (luv that thing)!
"Waterfall Background" and "Jungle Car" along with cute "Jungle Tilda" on the inside. I wanted it to look as though she was going to step thru a photograph of the Jungle and start her journey! The vine leaf ribbon can be found HERE--I just love it! The sentiment is from the same Hero Arts set.
diamond glaze and the tail lights got some stickles for sparkle.
diamond glaze, then stickles on top once dry and the foam of the water got a coat of liquid applique. And I added some sparkles to the mountains too--I wanted it to be dreamy beautiful! Hope you enjoyed the journey today---now your NEXT HOP is to KERRY's BLOG HERE (and if you get lost you can access all the Blog Hop info on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog as well)!!

Copic Creations Challenge Blog! This time our challenge was to use Copics to color embellishments, a really fun technique. Copics can be used on so many things including fabric, ribbon, paper, buttons, lace, clear baubles, brads, etc.! The sponsor this week is DZ Doodles and they have some beautiful digi stamps in their store and they so graciously gave each of the DT a digi stamp to use this week! I got this beautiful stamp called "Wrapped Tulips" which I love--Tulips are my absolute favorite flower of them all! The beautiful paper is by Prima, the lattice punch by MS and all cs is from PTI.
HERE). The image was cut out with my oval nestabilities and then I coated the edges with MS crystal microbeads for a fun touch.
Now make sure and hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog HERE to see the rest of the DT's beautiful projects and join in on the fun!
