Lily Pad Cards/Tickled Pink Stamps

It's that time again.....for another fabulous Lily Pad Palette Challenge, courtesy of our very own Kathy! This time we got to play some wonderful stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps using the sweet and summery color palette.

My card image is called Lil Pinkettes-Pippa. I thought she was adorable with her sugar and spice combo of flowers and overalls.

Coloring was done with Copics and the stamped bits are done with Jenni Bowlin inks in Chicken Feed and Chewing Gum. The patterned paper is from Basic Grey's Out of Print 6x6 paper collection.

I'm still limping along without my computer, it's been more than a week now and I'm in serious withdrawals. It's amazing how much I rely on that machine. This is my first attempt at a blog post on Ben's laptop and it's taking me much longer than it should. I guess I should mention that this laptop traveled to Iraq with him more than once, it's been dropped and gotten talcum powder-like sand blown through it. I'm just grateful it still works.
I just talked to the good people at Micro Center and they expect my new motherboard and power supply to arrive today, yippee! With any luck (and I've used a bit of it so far, my computer was still under warranty for 2 more months, can you believe it? ) I should have it back fully recovered by Monday. I'm missing all the fun at the Summer Card Camp and I can't wait to get back to it and entering all the challenges out there.

~ Proverbs 3:3-4 ~
"Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man."
