Jacksonbelle Tuesday, Featured Stamper and a winner!

Hi everyone! It's Tuesday and that means it's another Jacksonbelle challenge! Sadly, today will be my last JBelle Tuesday, as I have stepped down from the team. A sad goodbye, I love Lindsey and the entire team. It was such great fun to be a part of this amazing team! But, stay tuned, there will be a happy hello announced later in the week.

This week's challenge was a sketch -you can check it out on the JBelle Blog. Everyone is welcome to play along. As usual if you don't need to have JBelle supplies to play, but if you don't have any, you can check out the store and see if anything strikes your fancy. If you upload, you can use the keyword JBE059.

For my card, I went with only paper. Yep, no stamping on this baby. Don't ask me why, I didn't plan it this way, nothing would fit quite right in the oval. Huh? ... I still like it, it is just a bit different from most of my cards. The papers are all from Prima, from the Prima Life in Colors line.

For more inspiration on today's sketch, be sure to check out the other Design Team's cards!!

My next card is for this week's Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. This week the FS was Christy S. What a super fun gallery! I chose this card to case. I changed up the images, colors, but kept true to the layout and cute use of the 3 strips of DP.

The amazing lemonade glass image is from the newly released Unity Retro BBQ kit! I spent alot of time trying to figure out how to color the glasses, and settled on outlining them with Sakura Stardust pens! Love the super sparkle!! Oh, I also stamped the background maker sprinkle stamp on the yellow cs and embossed it with clear. The lemons have tiny bling in the centers. Everything is stamped in Memento Tuxedo black ink so I could hightlight the words with Copic markers without smudging.

And now time for the blog candy winners!!! Here are the Random.org number selections.

Hi Michelle,

I just wanted to send you my congrats from Australia, even though the blog candy is probably only available for US residents.
I've been a fan long before you even had a blog, right from the very early days of your SCS gallery. Your little teddy and your stunning cards used to brighten my day so much.
It's great to see how much you have achieved since then and I wish you continued success.

Kindest regards,
Robyn Little
