SQUEEEEEEEELLLLLL...I've got some NEWS!!!!! (& a sneak preview)

Ok, first my news...I've been accepted as a design team member for the new, upcoming challenge blog Stamptacular Sunday Challenge...Yoo Hoo! Can you say EXCITED?!!!!!! If my body was able, I'd do some backflips and a cartwheel....Oh, I just can't wait to get started! Yeah!!!!!!! (did I mention I was excited?) LOL...
...and a sneak preview. I have been chosen to be an Artist Spotlight of the week at the Card Sketch a Day blog (March 13 & 14), along with being highlighted as an artist, you receive a sketch and make a few cards and then you make a few cards and the blog owner, Susan, makes a sketch off of your cards (it's called switcheroo)...well this is ONE of my cards that I made (for the switcheroo), this is also one of my cards going to Inkadinkdo for their free stamp deal (see post below for the details). This is called a table tent card, and I got the idea from Michelle Wooderson. The card itself is 4 1/4" square and the top is off the card just far enough making it a standard 5 1/2", so I can fit it into an A2 envelope. Recipe below:

Recipe:
  • Stamps: Inkadinkado Heartfelt
  • Ink: Staz On, Martha Stewart
  • Paper: DCWV Nana's Nursery
  • Punch: Martha Stewart Lace Border
  • Dies: Nestabilities Oval and Scalloped Oval
  • Ribbon: American Crafts
  • Button: Unknown

Congratulations Paula! I'm so looking forward to working with you on the DT. As well as crafting we also share an interest in horses. Unfortunately I don't own one at the moment but I used to do a lot of eventing a few years ago.
