500 posts already??

No TSG Challenge this week, I will be leaving this post up for those of you who have not had the chance to enter for the blog candy. You can still participate in this give away even if you do not have a blog! Simply add the URL from your online craft gallery instead or you can send me an email and I will happily add your name to the list. I want this to be fair for everyone and to make sure that everyone has the chance to win :)
Friday Night Chat will be held tonight from 6-8 PM here on the TSG Forum. You have to be a registered user to be able to view/post on the forum so make sure you do that first! It only takes a minute and then you are ready to explore the forum.
***That calls for Blog Candy! I want to thank each and every one of you that take time out of your day to visit my blog and leave wonderful comments :) You guys keep me wanting to create something new every day and to challenge myself to try different things. Add your name to the Mr. Linky and the bottom of this post and I will randomly choose a winner on Monday. What is the candy you ask? How about your very own set of She's A Lady along with this card! ***

I love the stamp set She's A Lady but haven't used it in quite awhile. After I started piecing my card colors/layers together, I knew that this set would go perfect!

This card was made for the challenge on SCS today which was to use pleats on your project. I used kraft card stock folded up then stitched with a sewing machine for my pleats which worked perfectly as a sidewalk for my image.
The images were stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock and colored with Prismacolor pencils and blended with OMS. I cut them out and added them to the front panel with dimensionals. Instead of stamping the leash that comes with this set, I linked the lady and dog images with a piece quilting thread. You can see a better view here in the close up-
And the card is never complete without a matching card front-
Thanks for looking!

Congratulations for 500 posts! I tried to enter my name but Mr Linky also wants a URL. I don't have a blog; can I still be entered for a chance at your blog candy? I love today's card & pleats but my first thought was how cool your pink card with the binder paper would have fit the bill, too; it had lots of luscious pleats
