Gallery Idol, LF DT Call + Winner

Hi All-

I wanted to share two things with you today: 1- my three submissions to the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Contest and 2- the blog candy winner from my 500th blog post here.

First my submissions for the Paper Crafts Gallery Idol Open Auditions Round.  The theme for open auditions round is birthday cards for kids and teens.  You can enter up to three times, and here are mine:

#1- A Roaring Good Birthday!  This one is for the little guys (or gals) who just love Dinos.  The stamps are all Paper Smooches, with the exception of the speech bubble which is Lawn Fawn.  There is a lot of paper piecing here and I used the masking technique to make the palm fronds in the front.  The googly eye, ribbon and wood chips finish it up nicely I think.

#2-Dripping with Sweet Birthday Wishes.  This one is more geared towards the little girls with the rainbow colors and the bling.  The trendy chevron DP from Doodlebug is along the bottom with the coordinating paper for the popsicles.  The stamps on this one are Here's the Scoop from Lawn Fawn and a sentiment from Saavy Stamps. Each popsicle is "dripping" to show the color underneath and the sweet birthday wishes.

#3- iPhone Addiction.  This is definitely for the tween/teen age group, you know the ones who can't put their phones down and are constantly texting even if the other person is right next to them?!  Oh, you do that too, oh well... ;)  This is just cardstock shaped to look like an iPhone with silver, black and white paper.  I used my Silver Jelly Roll pen for the silver highlights.  The words are done with PS Word Salad stamp set and the punctuation and "emoticon" (smiley face) are from the LF A Birdie told me set.

Side note- I'll also be submitting a few of these for other contests, the dino for the PS Sparks DT (which is over) and the others for the Lawnscaping DT call.

For the last little bit of business today I wanted to share the winner of the blog Candy from my 500th post found here.  I have three clear stamp sets to send, some number embellishments  a canvas tote that can be decorated and some cute girly fabric decor.  I had my daughter draw a name out of a had and the winner is...

Pamela who said, "LOVE the way you used this stamp set! And all those pattern paper!"  

Pamela, please email me and I'll send off your goodies!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Your encouragement always means so much to me!
