I love this record, baby, but I can't see straight anymore....

Welcome to the first Ketto Blog Hop sponsored by Stamping Bella! If you've just happened upon my blog, you can CLICK HERE to start from the beginning at Bloggabella.

A QUICK NOTE: There's some fabulous eye candy out there for you today, but make sure you comment on each post, because there is a hidden prize!! One pre-selected blogger will draw a random winner from the comments on her post, and the winner will receive a $40 Gift Voucher to Stamping Bella!!! The fun part is...we're not telling you who it is! So as you hop, don't forget to leave comments on every post so you have a chance to win!! We will announce the winner on Monday.

As you're reading this, I am at the North Texas Splitcoast Shoebox Swap stamping my little heart out. Fun, huh? I hope you have a fabulous day ahead! Ok, enough blabbing, here's my card!


For my card today, I decided to use Amy R's Friday Sketch for this week. It's a great one! I stamped Missmatch Ketto in Memento Tuxedo Black on Simply Smooth Ivory paper from Prism and colored her with Copic Markers. The patterned paper is the Apron Strings pattern from the new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Collection...OH MY GOODNESS!! This paper is my new favorite. Possibly my favorite of the year. Anywho, I added some black and Kraft accents, stamped the Dance like no one's watching sentiment on the bottom right corner panel, and added some Riding Hood Red Taffeta ribbon in the top left corner. Finished it off with some Prima Flowers and Stickles...YUM! I hope you like it.

Now, it's time to hop on over to my fellow sistah and friend Amber's blog: The Stamping Scrapbooker. Don't forget to leave her some love along the way!!
