Quixotic Paperie Blog Hop!

>> Tuesday, June 1, 2010

This is my 2nd of 3 posts for the day! Scroll down to see my Card Share post with My Time Made Easy and check back in after a bit to see my Copic Creations post!

What day is today?!


Today is the 1st Anniversary of the Quixotic Paperie online store, and they are having a celebratory blog hop! If you're already following the hop, you should have hopped over here from Rachel Jakes - http://www.papercraftsbyrach.com/. If not, then hop back to the beginning at the Quixotic Paperie Store Blog. You won't want to miss a stop, as in addition to lots of fantastic inspiration, there are some prizes on offer (full details on the Quixotic Paperie Blog).

First of all, let me tell you how honored I am to be invited in on this hop! Quizotic Paperie was one of the first stores to carry Paper Makeup Stamps and is the only online store in the UK carrying my stamp line. Working with her has been a lot of fun, and when she invited me to join in the birthday hop, I of course said YES! And then i got the hop line up, well good LORD there are some phenom people in this hop! And the blog you were at before mine, Rachel Jakes has been someone who's work i have admired and longed to be like, and now she's linking to MY blog! SO i am definitely honored! And now, a little info on Quixotic Paperie if you havent read about it yet!
Quixotic Paperie was started on June 1st 2009 by Elaine Hughes. Having been an avid crafter (and craft shopper!) for a number of years, Elaine wanted to share her passion and see where it might take her - so, Quixotic Paperie was born! Since then, the store has grown, and now stocks a fabulous range of rubber stamps from around the world: The Greeting Farm, Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, SCACD Stamps, Paper Makeup Stamps, Belles 'n Whistles, the Mo Manning for Stamping Bella range, Stempelglede and more! In addition, the store carries a large range of charms and embellishments, and a host of gorgeous papers for all your crafty projects! If Elaine loves it, you will probably find it at Quixotic Paperie!
In November 2009 the Quixotic Challenges blog was started, where you can find weekly inspiration from the wonderful Quixotic Paperie Design Team, and join in for the chance to win a monthly prize.
It has been a fabulous and wonderfully crafty year and here's to another one and hopefully many more to follow!
And now onto my card! I was told I could use anything that the QP shop carried. So i am shamelessly using some Paper Makeup Stamps! :D This is Shaela Fairy and I think she's fabulous for any celebratory occasion!
I paired her with a sentiment from the Birthday Cheer sentiment set.
She was colored with Copic Markers (see list below if interested).
But here is a close up shot...
