Some Big News!!

So, the other day I get this private message over on SCS, and it is from Kim, the MFT lady. She says she has a question about a card that I had made, and wanted to know if she could call me. DUUUHHH, of COURSE you can!! So, naive little me, who has been DESPERATELY trying to get My Favorite Things to notice me and make me a design team member, REALLY thought that she just wanted to know something about my card. That wasn't why she called, she called to invite me to be a design team member- CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!!! I am so super excited, and having met a lot of the MFT girls when I went to the swap in Arlington Texas back in May, I am so honored to be a part of such a wonderful and fun group!! So with all that announcement....

So, for my first card as an official MFT design team member, I decided to play along with the first challenge. It is the Who's That Girl challenge, and the challenge was to use the Rain or Shine set along with some bling!! So, I stamped my main image from that set with Black Stazon on watercolor paper. I then colored it with my SU markers. The raincoat, dogs coat, and boots were paper pieced with some Apricot Appeal DP. The image was layered with Celery and Apricot layers cut out with my Nesties. I added some white brads with some sparkle added to them to each corner of the image and of the main card. The panel under the main image is some more AA DP with some glitter dots added to it. I added some spiral clips with ribbon to it too. The smaller circle panel is the separate boot stamp in that set, with the boots paper pieced and the spots colored with my white gel pen then my SU markers. I embossed my white layer with my Swiss Dots folder and added my sentiment. After it was all done, I basically spread some icicle stickles all over the place to make it sparkle!! This card is also for the Featured Stamper challenge on SCS. The Featured Stamper was Liz(lazy lizard) and she is so super sweet. I chose this card as my inspiration, but added some layers and change the images and colors!! That is it for me now, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!
