My Super-Exciting News!!!


I loved reading all your guesses about what my very cool news could be!! I literally had to laugh out loud at all the BABY comments (and thanks to Colleen for starting that ball rolling *insert eye roll here*)!!! Hahaha!! You gals must thank I'm insane!! My daughter is 15 years old for pete's sake! *chuckle*

No, no! That's not my big news! But most of you were right in saying that it might be Design Team related!! Heehee! Last week, when I got home from work one evening, I received an email that had me jumpin' out of my seat!! Which was quite a feat, seeing as how I just came home from a long evening shift at the library! It was from none other than Kim VanderSanden who is the owner of My Favorite Things!!! She said that she has admired my work for some time and wondered if I might be interested in joining her Design Team!!!!!! Okay, AFTER I picked my jaw up off the floor, I had to shake my head!! Could this be for real?? Is this a bad joke? A spam email?? Did Kim perhaps send this email to the wrong person?? Hahaha!! So I emailed her right back and said OF COURSE I would LOVE to be part of the My Favorite Things Design Team!! I mean, is it really even a question?? The current DT is comprised of some of my absolute favourite artists in the stamping world, so I am truly honoured and a little bit scared to join them!!

So I will be receiving a package from Kim in the mail soon that holds some of the new releases of MFT stamps and I can't wait to play with them!! But I won't be able to share them with you until the release party in early December!!

Anyway here is a card that I created using one of the newest sets called Boho Blossoms! This set is so elegant and classy!! I used a MFT sketch which you can find in the Member Company Forum under My Favorite Things. I think there is a new one each week, so if you like sketches, check them out!!

I used Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink and some new Daisy Buckets patterned paper that I picked up at Stamp Art. (By the way, they also carry the MFT line of stamps, so if you live in Canada and don't want to deal with the duty and brokerage fees, Nancy would be only too happy to help you get some!!) There are four square sections as the background and then I stamped the swirly heart shape on the crisp white Papertrey cardstock in Chocolate Chip craft ink, layered it on pink and chocolate, tied some pink taffeta ribbon in the holes I punched in the two corners and pop dotted it. Then I stamped the sentiment using several of the single words that are in the Boho Blossoms set and punched them out using my Word Window Punch and sponged them!! So easy, but SO elegant!! I really was terrified by this stamp set, because it really is out of my comfort zone, but I think it turned out pretty nicely!!

Thanks so much for sharing in my good news with me!! All your comments really make me feel like we are hangin' out, having some coffee and chatting!! Happy stampin'!!!
