Because Even Superheroes Need A Little Bling...

The Stampin Gals challenge this week is to use bling on your card. I chose to use this cute Billy stamp by Pink Cat Studio as my main image. He is just too cute as a superhero, a pirate, a cowboy and a boy with a frog on his head. He will be making many appearances over the next few months as we enter the Fall Birthday Season. Seriously, there is at least one birthday for DS's friends during each of the next 5 months.For bling, I added a rhinestone to his belt and also heat embossed the chipboard rick rack with Holographic EP. He is colored with Bic Mark-It markers and the circles for the sentiment are cut with Cuttlebug dies. I hope the lightning bolts around him show up in the photo.

It's been another doozy of a week, and I'm glad tomorrow is Friday!! I got the sweetest mail today - an envelope of Prima flowers from none other than Kim Hughes! What a great surprise :) She has new papers coming out tomorrow from CHF and I can't wait to see them.

This weekend, I will be going on a 13 mile "Route Preview" walk in preparation for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in NYC. Hopefully I won't be too tired afterward to spend some quality time in my craft room. It's been way too long since I had time to just play!

Have a good Friday. Thanks for looking!
