Good Morning Everyone!
I have been busy creating cards to post on my blog and also getting started on my Christmas Cards - wow, that's an undertaking in itself. I normally don't start my Christmas Cards until late November, so I'm ahead of the game! My camera that I borrowed was borrowed back and I hopefully will have it today so I can take some pics. of my most recent work - I've got some cute Halloween stuff to post. After Cambria's post about the Janome Mini Sewing Machine being on sale with free shipping, I just had to run over and buy one. It finally came and I have been a sewing maniac! I have been sewing/quilting for several years, but for some reason my Brother Sewing Machine just wasn't doing the trick on my cards - so I NEEDED the mini machine! bahhaaa! Thanks Cami for the enabling! :)
I received an email from Take Ten Magazine this morning that I have been published and will be receiving my complimentary copy! I am seriously stoked about this, since this is my first time being published. I haven't a clue what card/cards were picked up b/c I sent several, but I guess I am about to find out! woohoo!
I have recently received some really beautiful cards in the mail - one from my friend Katy Clark (katydidnt on SCS) who I met at the Arlington SCS shoebox swap a few months back. Katy sent me a beautiful card with some touching words inside - I can't wait to post her card. The other cards I received were from a My Favorite Things Swap I joined in on - there were some supah cute cards! There was one card in particular that really jumped out at me - it was from Pam Bassett (4hounds on SCS) - her card was absolutely amazing! Pam and I have been emailing each other back and forth. She is so FUNNY and supah sweet! I think it's a great start to a wonderful friendship. If you haven't seen her gallery, click on the link above and check it out - also Pam is a new blogger so go and check out her new blog - Indigo Studio!
I'll be back in a day or so with some really cute stuff to post from My Favorite Things and Hanna Stamps.
Priceless Meets Papertrey
I have had my SU! Priceless stampset for a few weeks now and finally decided it was time to show it some love. I needed a project for my stampclub this weekend and decided on a giftcard holder. This giftcard holder was inspired by the supah talented Kristina Werner - that girl has some great stuff! The giftcard fits nicely inside the little strip of soft sky that is adhered to the bottom, I also used a small strip of velcro to hold the card shut. I am in love with this color combo! Wasabi and Soft Sky together rock! Yes, I am having difficulties putting down my scallop circle punch, I want to use it on everything. I had a pretty good weekend, but it went too fast - can I have a do-over? lol

Stamps: SU! Pricess, Papertrey sentiment
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky and WW
Ink: Wild Wasabi and Soft Sky
Accessories: Stitched Ribbon, Dimensionals, Paper Piercer, Stickles, Scallop Circle Punch, Circle Punches
Happy Hump Day!
Geez am I glad we are one day closer to Friday - I have been fighting my strep throat all week and now I have laryngitis to top it all off!! I am looking forward to sitting down at my craft table and getting some birthday gifts made. I sat down this weekend and got out my MFT It's a Jungle set (one of my new faves) - this set is so much fun to play with. I adore 3-d, so I decided to color these two sweet little animals with my copic markers and then cut them out and attach them with some dimensionals. This card is sooo much cuter IRL. The background is Sky Blue cardstock and the leaves/vines/grass are stamped in Always Artichoke. Have a fabulous Wednesday!

Stamps: It's a Jungle - My Favorite Things

MFT's It's Elemental!
I got my It's Elemental set from Kim a while back and finally had the chance to get some ink on it! This set is amazing - I absolutely love it! You can do so many amazing things with this set. I decided to pair it with some of my basic grey DP and wowza, it matched perfectly! I also had to test out my new SU! photo corners punch I just got - I love it too! The sweet sentiment is from Verve Visual Thoughtful Phrases. I wish I could take credit for this amazing layout - but it's actually one of the Sketch Challenges on SCS - #143 to be exact - and this sketch rocks that's for sure! I got quite a bit of stamping done this weekend, even though I got sick yesterday with a sinus infection and have been sick every since! Yuck!!! I still feel bad today and have an appointment to see the dr. this afternoon. I hope I get better soon because I am in better spirits these days and think I have my Mojo back! :)
MFT Think Pink
This is a very special My Favorite Things set! Think Pink is special because 50% of the proceeds from each set sold will go directly to breast cancer research. This set is absolutely amazing and I am so excited to be a part of it and to be a part of the My Favorite Things Design Team.

This is straight from Kristi Ferro's blog so check it out!

Hanna Stamps! will be offering a HUGE incentive program that encourages you to start making items and sending them in for publication.

We are offering $100 for each and every publication made with Hanna Stamps! and also mentions our company name with it. Yes that is correct!! Example: If you get 5 cards published using our stamps, and the publication mentions our stamps were used to create your item, then you get $500 cold hard cash baby!!!

This is open to everyone and anyone, not just my design team. So please, start making those cards, scrapbook pages, 3-D items, and send them out. They do not have to be elaborate items. How many times have you seen magazines with cards and say to your self..."Oh man, I could have made that!!" Now is the perfect time to get going. There is no tricks or no hidden clause. It is as simple as it sounds. You get published in a national magazine with our stamps, the article says you used our stamps...and BOOM...$100. NO it is not a gift certificate either. COLD HARD CASH!!, well ok a cold hard check.

Get on over to Hanna Stamps and place your order tomorrow!!! Kristi is offering FREE SHIPPING on your order of Hanna Stamps during the month of October!

*ETA Here's the card I promised - Introducing Hanna!

New Stamp Company Design Team Excitement!

I have been waiting to share this news for quite some time now and finally I can let the cat out of the bag.....................I was asked several weeks ago by the supah sweet Kristi Ferro if I would be interested in joining her design team for her new stamp company - Hanna Stamps. I, of course, said YES! The minute I saw the first stamp set I knew it would be a winner - you all are going to so love these stamps!!! The Hanna Stamps website is still under construction and will be going live on Friday. Go to Kristi's blog and check out all the links to the design team member's blogs - there's some really cute stuff posted! I already have a sample made up with the first stampset and will be posting that this evening along with my newest sample using some of the new MFT stamps that Kim sent to me (they are uber cute!). The Think Pink Breast Cancer Awareness mini set is just adorable - 50% of the proceeds of the sale of this set will be donated to breast cancer research - what a great thing! I'm telling you once I get those batteries in that camera this evening that stinkin' thing better work! lol

I also want to tell each and everyone of you that left me a comment or sent me an email about my divorce post how much I truly appreciate it! You have no idea how much your kind words and encouragement have helped me. It's definitely a tough time and I know eventually I will get through it.
