Better Late Than Never...

Good morning, and happy Saturday to you!  A chilly Saturday, though it may be for some (like me). Brrrrr is it really Spring?  With temps dipping into the mid 30's I'm beginning to wonder!!  I have a card to share with you today that I made for the Cupcake Craft Challenges BlogThe Stamping Boutique sponsored their challenge a week ago, but I missed getting this card posted to my blog.   I used the sweet Curiosity digital stamp from The Stamping Boutique's Enchantment Line for this card.  The card was cut with my Cricut using the Wild Card cartridge.  Can you tell I had me a little fun with this one and the bling?  I colored the image with my Copic markers,  and I can't even believe that I didn't use any designer papers on this card!!! Be sure to check out The Cupcake Craft Challenge Blog for their latest challenge, and of course The Stamping Boutique where you'll find some great newly released images for summer!!   
Now, for some fun!   How would you like the opportunity to win a set of 12 Copic Ciao markers?   Have you heard of The Latte Lounge?  If you haven't, don't stress about it.  It's a new networking community dedicated to many aspects of life, of course including papercrafting.  The Latte Lounge is looking to get their name out there, and grow their community, so they have extended an invitation to store owners, and individuals to join the community.  If you own your own business, and you'd like to start a group at The Latte Lounge, come on over!!!  If you're an individual who loves papercrafting, is looking for friendship, and common interests, then you come on over, too!!  The Latte Lounge is open to any and everyone, and we hope to see you there!!  Here's some information telling you what it's all about, and how to get your name in the hat, not once, not twice, but many, many times, if you  invite your friends to join (and they do), and pass this info along on your blog: 

"TLL is a community started from our common love of all things paper and crafty! However, we hope our little community can grow to include all aspects of our members' lives - mental, spiritual, emotional and physical.

Hello Lorie. This is so beautiful and very delicate. I love the pretty scalloped shape, it makes that beautiful image really stand out. Very effective and so striking. Happy crafting.
Lots of love, Sandra xx
