Twilight Tuesday Inspiration Challenge #5...........

It's TUESDAY!!!! Yeah- here it is:
Which team are you on?
Undecided? You are Switzerland.
Like dogs? Jacob is for you.
Well.....we ALL know what TEAM I support!

Tonya had this in her post. I thought it was too funny not to share. (And admittedly true!)
So here is my take this week on the theme:

I found these papers at my LSS. They were in the fall section. Don't they just scream TWILIGHT? Then I went back and found them in black in the Halloween section. So of course I had to get those too! I am sure I will be using them soon! Maybe next Tuesday???
I has a lot of fun with this card. It came together really well. And I was happy with the mono color scheme.
Of course the BEST part was the stamp. If you remember I showed this to you earlier in the week. I am sure you have been drooling ever since! I know I have been! My Terrific friend Tonya sent it to me! So of course I had to return the favor and send her some little goodies too!
This is the back of the card. It was hard to get a good shot of the actual "glimmer" of this beautiful paper.......
I have found when I finish my TTIC- I am wanting more. (I feel like I am reading the books all over again!) So just for fun I made these earrings..........
I LOVE the quote on these..................
I was a little disappointed in the quality of the finished project. I may try making these again when I have more time. I used shrinky dinks. I ran them through the printer. (Maybe it was the fact that the printer ink never seemed to dry?) Cut them, punched them (don't forget this step), and then baked them. I think it would be fun to try and make some necklaces or bracelets??? Everyone I have given them to seems really happy- I am just so darn particular!

Make sure you check out what the rest of the design team did:



And remember if you want to play along with us- here is the link.

Okay- so we all know...I am on team Edward.
Jacob IS funny:
"Sorry. I don’t have any leeches on my speed dial.” - Jacob Black
But so is Mike:
“Did you see the size of that Jacob kid? I think he could take Cullen down.” - Mike Newton
However......Edward is eloquent:
"I’ll be back so soon you won’t have time to miss me. Look after my heart — I’ve left it with you." - Edward Cullen
So as much as I like funny..... I choose eloquent Edward any day of the week!
And BTW- in case you were wondering.....my vampire can beat your werewolf!

WHOOT! I love it! That paper is gorgeous! How do you keep finding this spectacular stuff? I *never* see stuff like this at Michaels! I'm absolutely drooling over it! Your card is fab!!! I could just go on and on...and my post will be up in about 5 minutes!! And I DID go on and on!! Those earrings are just too cute..I have a laser printer so I'm going to try it out to see if the ink will dry better...i'll let you know.

Beth said...

Another awesome post! I agree - you have the best paper out there in CA!

I love my earrings & goodies, too! Thank you SO freakin' much! I completely intend to give proper gushing as soon as my camera surfaces!

Beautiful job!

PS - use a sanding block on your shrinky paper before you stamp or print on it. The finer the grit, the better. The ink won't sit on top of it as badly. :)

Eve said...

Why do I blog?

I have never been one to keep a journal. I have never been able to write in a diary for more than a week! I have countless scrapbooks that still need to be journaled. I do this in hopes of becoming a better journalist. I do this to document everyday life. I do this so I don't have to scrapbook EVERY picture! I do this for me, our friends and family, & mostly the kids. One day they will have it all - because I took the time to document all the little things that REALLY do matter. Everyday life....all the little moments you & I can't remember because the memories are long gone.......
