March Madness and Wplus9 Design Studio!

It's madness, I tell you! These stamps are TOO much fun.... Dawn's designs,
and in my sample for today, Kerrianne's signature line....,
the girls have done it - AGAIN! Check out "Retro Girly" getting some celebration - ON!
Kerrianne is back with her second action figure - Retro Girly is bearing presents!

Ooooooow, she's DARLING! And I got all paper-piecy for the occasion!
Transparency was calling my name again, so I did some more
"old school animation" style color work on the back side of this
transparency, stamped with brown Staz-On... I added acrylic paint AND paper
to make Retro Girly come to life! I created the frame with Dawn's new die,
All Occasion Label, THROUGH chipboard - it worked pretty nicely, don't you think?

Oh, and check out my SUPER Springy color inspiration!

I am SO excited to be playing along with CR84FN!
{FOR the first TIME! Yipeeeee!}

JUST the graphics alone have been enticing me to get some color going for
this fun & inspiring challenge destination!!! Never mind that they have some
super AMAZING designers on their team, and that I have admired Mona's work
forEVER! {In my blog years, that is.. heh heh} I'm just excited by the mojo! Colorful mojo!

Oh, and SPEAKING of mojo... heh heh
Say HELLO to inspiration! CHECK out the Wplus9 girls!


So, poof up your hair, climb in to some fancy shoes and clip clop your way into your
craft room - IT'S TIME TO PLAY! {Isn't that what you USUALLY wear to stamp?} hee hee
Okay, if your don't want to do ALL that, just break out some plastic and get ready to order
up some fun - Wplus9 STYLE! Dawn's stamps will be available tonight at midnight so,
GIDDY UP! And don't forget: YEEEE HAWWWWWW!
