And down comes the confetti and streamers!!

Hi! Thank you for stopping at my little piece of the party! I am so happy that you're here and I think it's just wonderful that you are celebrating Katie and her awesome line of stamps! I can't wait until the actual kick off at 3:oo (EST), but am so glad that she's letting us get the ball rolling early for some pre-party chatter and eye candy.

So away we go! This is Emma the lovely Spring Fairy and she's having tons of fun dancing in the rain.


I had a lot of fun with this card. It does feature a sentiment from an older TAC set but I felt it perfect for Emma. The decorative paper I chose I absolutely fell in love with and without even realizing it, I used it on several of the cards I made in the last couple of days. It's Blue Raspberry Paisley by DeJa Views. I colored her with the Prismacolor Markers I just got and I am so ready to place another order for more! They are awesome. The sketch came from a blog I recently found called Live * Laugh * Love and it's the greatest sketch!

Enjoy the blog-hop and party! Don't forget that there are challenges, games, prizes and digi-images that will only be available for one day.
