That is what this pink little robot is saying. Not sure what exactly that MEANS, but that's just what she was saying when I colored her. hehe

So my friend Stephanie has been annoying asking me to get robot stamps since forever and I saw these at Michael's the other day and just bought them coz I thought they were sorta cute.

What I used: Recollections robot stamp set from Michael's, Neenah Solar White, American Crafts PP, Walmart brand (what is it called?) pink cardtock (which matches the AC perfectly! even though it is a bit thinner than I'd normally use.), ribbon, Cuttlebug, Spellbinders dies, stick on rhinestone, Memento ink, Copic markers, stick on pearls, and Stickles.

This card has already been given to Stephanie. She asked me what the robot's name is and I told her...Her name is Lola, She was a show-girl. LOL

Very versatile...I'd say.

So today the DT at All That Scraps is reviewing on of the new releases this month. And today we're showcasing the beautiful set that Amy put together called Sympathy Sentiments. She put this beautiful branch with flowers on it in the set so it really is the whole package. BUT....I didn't want to use it as a sympathy card. I wanted to make a pretty pink card with this set...so I did!

What I used: Sympathy Sentiments set, C.C. Designs Copic Quality White Cardstock (triple love this, y'all. It is so thick and luxurious and blends the Copics so much better than some of the other papers I've used.), Memento ink, Copic markers, Basic Grey Pattern paper, Stampin' Up cardstock, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Spellbinders dies, Cuttlebug, May Arts ribbon.

That's all I have for today! Stop by the ATS blog to see what the other ladies have done. :)

A bit different...

I actually used paint chips on this card! On the last VSN on SCS, the challenge was to use paint chips on your card.
