Hello everyone! I am super-busy today so just a short post for ya! I had a blast at my lunch w/ my gal pals yesterday and we also went to the movies to see "The Women". I don't care what the reviewers said, we thought the movie was fabulous, 2 thumbs up!!! I just love Meg Ryan--great to see her back in a good, comedic movie!!
I have 4 big announcements for you over the next couple of days that are super exciting for me, but I can't say all of them until I'm allowed (sorry to tease). Two I can tell you about--I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Spiral Whisper for the month of October--yippee! Lovee those stamps and they ship here to the US superfast too! I'll have a card for ya tomorrow with some of the new Xmas stamps (becuz' my girl outings didn't allow me to finish it up in time yesterday, lol). You can check out my announcement and my future designs on their blog here.
I was also chosen to be on the Clear Dollar Stamps Design Team--yahoo! I'm honored to have been chosen alongside so many other great designers. (I will have the DT blog list up on my sidebar by tomorrow for ya) If you haven't checked them out before, you really should--lots of good stuff over there (I think Charlie the horsie is my fave though)!! So look for sneak peek projects here pretty soon--lots to share with you.
Onto the card of the day--this is a stamp set that I ordered just a bit ago (okay, 2mos ago but whose counting) and I finally inked it up! This set is called "Merry Muffins" by Stampendous which is exclusive to the Eclectic Paperie store. I love that you can mix and match the stamps to make whatever combination of sweet treats that you want. I wanted to use this yummy Heidi Grace dp and make this a 50's like soda fountain birthday card. The cs is all by PTI including the ribbon and the sentiment is from SU's "Spectacular Birthdays"(retired). I added some diamond glaze to the glass and liquid applique to the whipped cream. Aren't these lil' creatures so cute--love their faces! I also used my "happy birthday" cuttlebug folder for the embossed background (dontcha' just love those). And I colored it w/ my Copics which by the way I got another order in from Carpe Diem and now my color chart is complete...ahhhh...now I have to buy all the refills, lol!!
Hope you like it! I may be back with more today, we'll see....
