I get by with a little help from my friends

>> Wednesday, February 10, 2010

Ok, this time it isnt a case of my getting by, it's a case of helping someone else get by.
Because this is what we do as friends!

A dear friend of mine, Gabby, has been having trouble. She and her family have hit a financial hardspot that has caused to to make some big sacrifices. Since there are a lot of peeps in the paper crafting world who know Gabby, and i knew that quite a few of them would want to help, but just not know how... i thought it would be fantastic to release a few digi stamps where all they money would go to her and her family. :) You can read all about the digi release and see some Auh-mazing creations by the PMS design team on the PMS company blog.

Here is my card using Moody for Rock!

I love love love this moody girl! Everything down to the details in her hair! I know girls who actually have prints died into their hair and while i could never pull it off, i think its way fun!

Here is a closeup shot of this rockstar!
The teardrop shapes in the background i simply colored with copics: R24 in the center, c9 on the outside and C5 to blend the outer and inner together.

Also being released today are 2 digi wordarts. The one not seen on my card today (though you'll see it soon) was arranged by Gabby herself! Gabby is not one to ask for help, so when i approached her about this release, she at least wanted to contribute to it a bit! You can check out her word art HERE.

Here is a close up shot of the 2nd of the digi wordarts being release today. This one is really more of a digi sentiment than a full out wordart. :)

Gabby definitely rocks my world! I have "known" her for over a year when we were both on a design team for another stamp company. And now i'm fortunate enough to have her on my design team for Paper Makeup Stamps. her talent amazes me. Her passion motivates me. Her friendship makes me all warm and fuzzy. I hope that everyone who knows (and loves gabby, because who doesnt love gabby!) sees this as an opportunity to help a girl out. :)

Thank you so much everyone for filling my life with such wonderful joy!
You are all rockstars!

Can I just say your card "Rocks" the copics scare me! LOL I have a couple but after looking at your card they really make it, just makes the color pop! So that is my project this weekend to see if I can create something as vibrant! Thanks for the inspiration!
