Being Unique......


I decided today while at work selling building materials (can you say BORING??) that I was going to come home and make a purple flamingo.  Why?  Because I love the color purple and I love flamingos.  And I just so happen to have a relatively new (only used once) fabulous flamingo stamp and die set by Reverse Confetti.  In fact the name of the set is Fabulous Flamingo. Don't you just love the sentiment, too? I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter on my chipboard frame to bling it up a bit.  Added some sequins, a bit of Bella Blvd washi tape and this baby is done. I think I will give this card to my 6 year old granddaughter because she loves pink and purple.  And I always want her to be HER...the unique one of a kind Abby.

While at lunch today I was surfing the internet and came across the Cutting Edge Blog Hop hosted by Pretty Pink Posh.  There are loads of prizes which would be great to win but I was just so inspired to create something that I thought about it the rest of the afternoon.  Go HERE for all the details and I hope you have some time to create this weekend.


I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap for my card:


I am entering it into their August sketch challenge.  They have some AWESOME sketches for layouts and cards that I am hoping to have the time to play with this month.  You can check their blog out HERE.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today....have a fabulous weekend!!
