Busy Beauties Prize

Blogging is fun! I love checking out the blogs of others and seeing their awesome creations. I try to leave comments, letting them know what I like about their work. I also enjoy keeping my own blog current. And, is it okay to say this, I love it when people leave comments on my blog.

Sometimes the things people post are a complete surprise......... like last week when Carolyn, creator of the Busy Beauties digital stamps, commented that I was the Grand Prize winner of the blog hop featuring her new releases. I WON 3 DIGITAL STAMPS! Isn't that the coolest?!?!? THANK YOU, CAROLYN!!!

Sooooooooooooooo... I went shopping! And I didn't even need any money. Incredible! You should go shopping at Busy Beauties, too... but take your wallet. I know you're going to want to buy something (since we can't all win the Grand Prize.) Here's the link to the Busy Beauties store:

Today's card is made with one of the images I got from Busy Beauties. It's called Baking Beauty, and she IS a baking beauty! This image was so fun to color. I can see using her in lots of ways in the future - as a topper for a bag of homemade cookies, on a recipe layout, on a jar of baking mix, on gift bags, on cards, etc.

I didn't do much extra on this card, it didn't need much since the image is so striking all by itself. I did add some liquid applique for the droplets of batter on her face and apron.

Thanks again, Carolyn... I love BUSY BEAUTIES!
