Hi Everyone! Hope you are all having a great week so far! I have some Super Duper exciting news to share with all of you who don't already know - I was selected as one of the 2010 Spellbinders Design Team Finalists. That means, I advance to the final round for a once in a life time opportunity to be on the 2010 Spellbinders DT! Someone PLEASE pinch me & tell me I am not dreaming??? I am also celebrating the magic # 300 +! Holy Smokes! Thank you all for your support & sweet encouraging comments :)
I made a card for my dear sister, Tina who takes care of my fur babies when I am out of town. For sketch inspiration, I played along with Kazan's fun sketch #45 from 2Sketches4You & for color inspiration, I played along with the embellish magazine pretty color challenge with ribbon. If you would like to see some amazing eye candy, please don't hesitate to visit both of these sites & see what the DT's & players have created!
Here is my Thanks a Latte card:
I am a one cup a day coffee drinker except when Tina comes to visit!!! We always make a 12 cup pot to share :) After our bicycle ride of course!!!
I bought both of these stamps when I was at CHA. They are the first "coffee" inspired stamps that I own. I am always on the look out for new & exciting things :)
Lauren has designed this new fun MTME © stamp set called © Argyle Amazement. It is so much fun & makes for a great background set. Can never have too many of those right? :) If you haven't already, head on over to the MTME store & see for yourself what an Amazing set this really as well as all the other products!I layered the card with a strip of the MTME © digi Shutt-erfly DP (polka dots) along with a piece of embossed SU Tempting Turquoise cs. I have had that Cuttlebug Argyle EF for several years & NEVER used it!!!! Now, paired with MTME © Argyle Amazement stamps, it makes for the "perfect blend"! (giggle-giggle)To make the polka dot hearts, I inked up the Waltzingmouse polka dot heart image with the various inks, then centered a Spellbinders Heart die & ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot Express. Voila!
I am also celebrating the magic # 300! Holy Smokes!
