Believe

Hi All!  So, you know those moments- the ones where your 'mojo' or 'inspiration' kicks into overdrive?  Where you see something- a particular patterened paper or a stamp and your mind just kind of explodes with not just one way to use it but a ton of different ways...where you literally find yourself thinking about it and what you can create until you finally get the chance to sit down and do it?  For whatever reason this Lil Christmas August Pinkette from the new release was that way for me...I don't know if its the adorable coat and hat or the movement of the wind that caught me but whatever it was I couldn't wait to get started with her.  I colored her with my Copics and used some Diamond Stickles for the trim on her coat and boots.  Then I used a gold glitter pen to accent the movement lines for the wind.  Then, while at my local scrapbooking store, I came across this 6x6 Holiday collection paper pack by Webster's Pages (not sure how I've missed it before!) and fell in love with it as well.  Once home I couldn't think of anything better than to combine the two things that were making me go into creative overdrive and this is the result!  All the pieces for this came together so easily, it's probably one of the fastest cards I've ever made.  And the final result is definitely something I love...I just look forward to getting to use this stamp again because I have a feeling it's going to be a new found favorite :)  I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!  Make sure to drop by the Tickled Pink Stamps blog for some more incredible inspiration from my fellow DT lovelies and a chance to win this adorable stamp!
