Bingo!

Happy Glee day everyone! Gosh does it feel good to finally be able to say that once again, LOL! I am SO looking forward to tonight's episode with the fundraiser concert and Sue and her Sue-pervillains... I anticipate many great new songs to add to my ipod soon. ;) Ok, now that I've gotten that excitement out of my system I can chat about today's card a bit... I made time to play along in the Kraftin Kimmie challenge this week because I really loved the Bingo card concept. They've created a template that has a different embellishment in each square, rather than numbers, and you get to choose which row of three that you want to add to your card. I chose to go with the top row of flowers, buttons and bling for my three elements though I think I could technically have the middle row covered as well with glitter (do Copic Spica glitter pens count?), lace/ribbon/twine and KK accessory stamp (sentiment). Sheesh, if I had been more on the ball I could have gone for a full blackout! :) For my main image I went with the berry sweet Stella Strawberry because I really wanted to use this funky strawberry paper that I kept flipping past in the Sweet Nectar paper pad. I think the teal background adds a shot of the unexpected to the whole berry theme of the card which is kinda cool. And dont'cha think Stella looks kinda like a little Bavarian beauty... which brings to mind Bavarian cream, then add some juicy strawberries to that, mmmmmm... pastries... drool... I SO need to go eat breakfast, I don't think that it's a good sign when your stamps start making you hungry! ;) Alrighty, today I head off to work but then I will be enjoying a couple days off afterwards... it will be fun to see what kind of trouble I can get myself into then.
