Some New Fun For Me! LiaStampz Challenge #42 - Add a Flower

Happy Friday, my friends!
Today is a scheduled post because I'm very busy with all the last minute details for the wedding! Tomorrow is the BIG DAY! The festivities, and time with family, will continue for a few days afterwards so you may not be hearing from me for a little while!
I am very excited about today's post! A little while ago, while doing some digi shopping over at Whimsy Stamps, I discovered some fabulous images by LiaStampz. Some of them are so fun they made me laugh right out loud...and you know how much I like that! :o) So fast forward a little bit and I was invited to join the Design Team! Of course I said YES!! I'm excited about sharing some of their sweet images with you! All the links to Lia Stampz and the other DT members have been added in my sidebar, so please check them out!
Over on the LiaStampz blog there are some great challenges going on...twice a month! You can read the Challenge Rules HERE. You don't have to use a Lia Stampz image but if you do you can enter the challenge twice. You have the chance to win a prize or be the Spotlight Artist!  I'd love to see some of you join in the fun!
This Challenge #42 is "Add a Flower". How easy is that? We all love to add flowers to our projects, don't we? For my card I used the image called Lily and you can find it in the Whimsy store right HERE. Isn't she cute? She totally reminded me of Pippi Longstocking so I just had to color her hair red! The flowers are all cut with my wonderful new Cricut Expression 2! I'm really liking that fun machine!
Okay...must run! Please go check out the fun challenge and all the wonderful images! Have a beautiful weekend! :o)
