"Just Be Me"

Good Morning Scrappy Friends. I wanted to share a card I made to play along with Tiddly Inks. Their challenge was "Just Be Me" - Create a card that represents who you are. Now that was a bit difficult to do because I couldn't really break it down to one picture. But last week I was lucky enough to win some images from Christy and I chose this one because I really loved the little girl/bug that is sleeping, relaxing and reading. I found this image appropriate to portray a bit of me because I enjoy relaxing, reading a good book and taking a delicious long nap :). Plus, It's also a good representation because i can be very carefree in other aspects of my life, sometimes a little to much. lol

I'll be playing along with:
Tiddly Inks Challenge - Just Be Me
Simon Says Stamp Chellenge - Bingo (Ribbon, Brads and Flowers, I used brads for the center of the colored flowers )

Thanks!


**Now a side note: I hate having to do this but I just found out that some blog candy I gave away is being recycled and is being offered up as a bribe. Now if it would have been candy that I didn't care for I wouldn't be this upset but I gave away a set of Prismacolor Pencils and it was quite difficult for me to give them away. Those pencils are very special for me because as you know, they are what I use for my coloring and relaxation. However, I offered them up as blog candy because I wanted a fellow blogger/scrappy friend to enjoy them as much as I do. Now, I feel as if another Scrappy Friendfollower missed the opportunity to enjoy them. Am I being too sensitive?

So sorry to hear about your precious pencils. I know the feeling when blog candy is offered up we hope that it is loved and cherished by the winner and not given away. Big Hugs!!!

Love your pretty card.

That digi is so cute. That stamp would be me too. I love to sit in my yard in the hammock and watch the kids play/fight (LOL). I am so sorry to hear that someone is giving away something they won. I love all the blog candy that people offer. I am just getting started scrapping so I would cherish any supplies/candy that I won. PS I love to color with my colored pencils too.

I don't think you are being too sensitive. If the blog candy wasn't wanted then that person should have let you give it to someone else. I personally think that is tacky.

I think your card is adorable! I totally understand about the pencils. I think it is wrong... If you do not want the item please dont accept the prize or even try to win it in the first place. If I already have something like a cartridge I don't try. Those pencils are special. I went and got some recently and need lots and lots of practice! You do great work! Thanks for all you do for us and for all of the great ideas you share with us! Someday I hope my blog will be functioning and have great ideas like yours. Don't let that person get you down... Just hope that the person who eventually ends up with those pencils appreciates them and uses them to create! ;)

Hi, Jess. Your card is so pretty! You know I love the round cards and the colors you chose are beautiful. You know how I feel about blog candy! If it is something the person is NOT going to use or has already then they should not accept it. I know of plenty other people that would love to have those pencils.

Hugs,
Stephanie
