Spreading the love...Jaime Style

**************Hello Everyone...this is my second post for today..for the Little Paper Shop Monday post please scroll down*************


Good morning all!!! And please welcome to this very special issue of Jaime Style Blog hop...this blog hop is in honor of Jaime Cates, victom to a random act of violence...we want to shower young Jaime with love and let her know that people care for her and are thing about her in this time of need for her...there are tons of prizes and fun fun cards to be seen! If you have just arrived at my blog and know nothing about the hop for Jamie please start at Katherina's Blog.



Jaime's favorite colors are pink and black...so won't you join us in making her some awesome cards! You don't have to make her a pink and black card, but please join us in showering her with LOVE that I know you stampers have!!

This is my card...it's made using a Whimsy Stamps image...I then cused my coluzzle circle cutter and matted the main image...although I matted it on a slight tilt...which I think is super cute! I also added some fun buttons and ribbon...this card meets 4 challenges:



-Whimsy Stamps Challenge to use circles
-Saturday Spotlight to use sentiments as the focal point (this might be stretching it a tad!)
-La La Land Challenge #10 to use ribbon
and
-Beate's WSC104 shetch!

I had a friend come over and she joined me in the fun challenges and Love sharing...this is her card...she hasn't really stamped before, scrabooked yes, but not stamed and I think she did a FAB job!

Supplies:
Stamps: Whimsy Giraffe by Whimsy Stamps, sentiment from Chirp By Little Paper Shop (for the inside I used the swirl from a set called {Flourished Dove}
Ink: Stazon black
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper white, pink passion
Accessories: black gingham ribbon, stripped ribbon, solid grosgrain ribbon, coluzzle, buttons, linnen thread, ink pad, blender pens

Now, how about joinnin us and making some FAB cards for Jaime!
