Feature Friday - An Award, Exciting News, and a Purple Leopard

First, don't forget about my giveaway!  Second, I want to say thank you to Silje over at Foxy Mary's world for nominating me for the Versatile Blogger award!


I am not going to go through the process since I just recently did it, but I did want to thank her and tell you to go check out her blog!

And in even more exciting news...I am DONE!  I finished the last of my papers, and did my last presentation Wednesday evening.  And, my professors this semester gave me the greatest compliment.  They all encouraged me to pursue my doctorate, saying that my work is of that caliber.  SO COOL!  Thursday was my first day in a very long time that I did not have a discussion board to do, article or chapter to read, paper to write, etc.  All I have to do now is sit back, and wait for graduation to roll around next weekend!  Woohoo!

So, the mani I did for this week's challenge for Adventures in Stamping is the Purple Leopard.  The theme was unnatural animals.  I originally intended to get really creative with some kind of supernatural mani featuring ghosts or zombies.  But, I was so enjoying my day with nothing to do, I didn't want to exert too much effort!  LOL  So I randomly chose a plate, and used my favorite color, purple.

I started with my base of SH Double Duty.  Then, I added two coats of ChG Sweet Hook topped with SV.  Then I used SH Complete Salon Manicure in Bewitched to stamp the leopard print from BM 221.  I topped it all off with SV and called it a day!  Have a great weekend, everyone!
