STAMP SOMETHING - TRIBUTE TO MELISSA

Happy happy Friday!! I just love Fridays, no rushing around tomorrow morning, Tony comes home tonight, just a great day of the week!! And, it means another Stamp Something Challenge, whoohoo!!!! As I told you last week, the month of May we are paying tribute to all of the DT members who are leaving us at the end of the month! So, it's kind of a bittersweet thing because we get like family and I hate to see anyone go!! This week it's Melissa that we are showcasing!! She is an absolutely amazing talent in both stamping and scrapbooking, I always love checking out her new creations!! Now, M is my new partner in crime for the new challenge site we created so I am not really saying goodbye to her, lol!! However, I will miss her for SS on Fridays!! M loves pink - hence the name of her blog, Simply Pink. So, this week, in honor of Melissa, the challenge is to stamp something pink. Now comes the part I did not pay attention too (oops!) It is supposed to be Pink Birthday somethings - but I forgot the birthday part (doh!!!) So, forgive me M for being a bonehead!!! It IS pink though - LOL! Although I guess it COULD be a birthday card.......right??!! Heehee, you know I love ya girlie!! So, make sure you all go over and check out the eye candy from the rest of the DT gals, they did a FABULOUS job (and followed directions). And, give this one a try yourself - just upload your link to the Stamp Something Site so we can all see it!! Now, I am off to work on cleaning the house, getting dinner prepped, and organizing for an afternoon of stamping with my downline - too fun, right?! What a great day!! I hope you all have a FABULOUS one too!! Thanks for stopping by, your comments always make my day!!

So pretty. The layers are gorgeous.

Emily said...

This is beautiful Alex! I love the papers and colors you used! The ribbon looks great too!

Oh, and I did the same thing! Totally forgot we had a theme. I had thinking of you on my card, but I realized it later and tore off the main layer to redo it, lol. Funny thing is, when I was redoing that layer to change the sentiment, I almost stamped congratulations on there until I remembered why I was changing it =)!

Hey Alex. Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your sweet & funny comment. Too bad I don't scrapbook because I'd be applying to the new DT call. I wish you much success with it and I'll be there too!
