Sweet Spotlight: Michele Duffy

It's the Friday dance! AND, we're here with Michele Duffy as our special guest spotlight today!

Meet Michele Duffy -

Here is a little about Michele in her own words... 
I’m Michele Duffy and I’m so happy to be working with Sweet Stamp Shop stamps today! Stamping, scrapping and card making give me a much needed crafty break from my job as an engineer. I like to stamp alongside my soon-to-be 3 year old daughter (and yes, I let her use my good Sweet Stamp Shop stamps – they are really durable!) I tend to prefer a more clean and simple style on my cards, but I like to layer up embellishments on my scrapbook layouts too. When I’m not stamping, I like to ski and read, and hang out with my husband and daughter. I’d love it if you would come visit my blog at .  

Check out the cards that Michele made for us this month... 

From the cheerful colors to the fun patterned paper - I really like Michele's clean design and fun cards! Don't you!?! 

Take a moment and visit Michele HERE

Ok - as promised from yesterday .... I created a little something something using my NEW Walmart craft finds... remember this picture?


I found a JUMBO extra huge bag of sequins for around $2.00 and then I found an equally huge bag of NEON pipe cleaners for around $2.00. So, for $4 I got a whole stash of new fun embellishments just waiting for a card....

So, I got creative and made a little something...

(and, I'm so happy about how it turned out!!)

Want to see a break down of this BRIGHT card?! I'll call it the 'anatomy of a neon card'

I used watercolor - eyelets - neon ink - neon pipe cleaners - sequins - recycled plastic - AND Sweet Stamps!! -- Chalkboard Sign and Kiss Me --

I had so much fun playing with the same crafty stuff I played with when I was young when NEON was HIP - RAD - Like, totally AWESOME!  (I'm so glad it's back!)
