Happy Wednesday everyone! Tonight's the night! The new stuff
gets released! We are having a party at 9pm EST right here, and we'd love to see you join us! I made this tag using a pearl white petaloo magnetic tag only I mixed it up (can you say opened it backwards?) and used the back as the front! Yes, it wasn't initially my *plan* to do this but as it turns out they work both ways and it gave me more space since all of this wouldn't have fit otherwise! I used the main image from the Be Mine mini which might look a touch familiar to you. It is a much larger version of the candy box in Hearts Galore. I really love that box of chocolates but it was too small to really color and play with. I also like it when sets can be combined since I think it adds versatility and everyone needs to get the most mileage from their stash, right? I thought I would veer away from the traditional red candy box and go for one of those fancy gold ones! I colored in all my chocolates with copics and then colored the box with spicas in gold. It is so sparkly IRL but alas I've not mastered photography so you can't really tell from the photo. I stamped my sentiment in brilliance chocolate and then stampes the swirls from It's Elemental to add some flair. I used gold liquid pearls on all the scallop humps (have I told you for some odd reason every time I am working on a punch set that song runs through my head? I am not exactly a fan of that song so it is quite annoying...) and on the ends of the flourish. Then I grouped a whole slew of pale pink, brown and gold ribbons together and forced them, yes that's right, forced them through the hole and made a knot. This is probably way more info than any of you needed but I am finally getting used to my ergonomic keyboard so I just felt like typing! HA! I can't wait to see you all at the *cocktail* party!

I love your tag. The colors are great! I am so excited for the party tonight! I don't know what song you are referring to, but I am better off not knowing or it will be in MY head all day...I hate that!

I love this tag, Kim. It's gorgeous. I just popped in and ordered your Punny Farm set. Every last image is perfect and I can't wait to play with it.

I missed the party (logged on just 20 minutes before it was over and it was wild and crazy!) and although I skimmed a bazillion pages (what was with the 3 nipple thing? LOL), I didn't find any discount codes or specials. Were there any? I've been saving my "cart"...

I stopped in last night to get a feel for your party and as you told me it was fun and all over the place. I then went to the store and bought Punny Farm and a couple of other sets from my wish list, but why, oh why didn't I buy the monthly special. I didn't see your blog or Kendra's before I purchased -- they would have sold me. I debated... Oh well, maybe next time. Or maybe I will hop over there now and just do it. Maybe you can get it together with the other and ship both together. Okay, that's what I am going to do, cause I am crazy!!!
