Double Super Tuesday at PMS!

It's a Double Super Tuesday at Paper Makeup Stamps because first of all, today is the release of their April stamps! There are new fairies, animals, and sentiments. The DT team has been doing sneak peeks for the past week, so if you haven't seen them, visit their blogs posted on my sidebar to see all the great new stamps! You can also visit the PMS blog for some sneaks as well.

The second reason why this is a Super Tuesday is because it's the first Tuesday of the month, which means that today there is a one-day only sale at PMS. All Monsters and Aliens are 50% off! Yes, that's right...50% off! But it's only for today, so hurry on over there! To celebrate this sale, I've made a card featuring Spike the monster. It looks like he's rushing over to PMS for the sale too! The sentiment is also from PMS called Paradise. This sentiment, and several of the PMS sentiments, come in a small and large size. I like that idea because your sentiment could compliment a larger image, such as in this card, or with the larger version it could be the focal point on your card. Very versatile!
This card started out following today's Mojo Monday sketch, but I couldn't make it work, so I left off one layer and made it work for me. I won't post it as a Mojo sketch, it will just be a "Lisa" sketch! LOL! The dp is Cosmo Cricket's Broadwith and Links. I took my colors for Spike from the paper (which is something I do often...choose my dp and color my image accordingly). I mounted Spike on Pumpkin Pie and the sentiment on Real Red. The dp is mounted on Not Quite Navy and the base is Whisper White. The ribbon is also SU...from their Sale-a-bration promo. It's a very nice twill in Certainly Celery. The star brads are something I picked up a while ago from the Target $1 spot. I added some crystal effects to his eyes and a little bit of clear star gelly roll pen on Spike for some **SPARKLE**.
That's all for today, folks! Remember to stop by the PMS store for some new stamps and a great sale! Thanks for stopping by!
