a card and a woot...

Hello friends!!  Hope everyone in the US has a wonderful Memorial Day and that we all take time to remember all those who gave so much for our freedom!  

I have a little card I made using the current My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch challenge sketch and the current Dynamic Duos color combo of light blue and navy.    For my card I used the MFT/LLD Border It - Mod Borders set, as well as the MFT set You Make My Day.  The MFTWSC sketch is super clean and simple this week and so that is how I kept it.


I stamped the chevron image from the set using SU!'s Midnight Muse and Memento's Summer Sky inks.  The card base is PTI's Spring Rain and the dark blue mat is SU! Midnight Muse.  I used my MFT Fishtail Flag Stax dies to cut the fishtail flag and then added a PTI Spring Rain button.  I thought I had some dark blue and white bakers twine, but I guess I was dreaming because I don't, lol!  Thank goodness I have lots DMC embroidery floss and found one to match!   Guess I gotta pick up some dark blue and white baker's twine!! 

I mentioned in the time that I had a "woot" to share and for me this is a pretty darn big "woot".   A few months ago I got an email from the editor of Stamper's Sampler Take Ten informing me that they had picked me to be their guest artist for the Summer 2013 issue!!  I can't tell you how excited I was.  Being picked as a guest artist has been a dream for me.  The Summer 2013 issue is now on newsstands so I hope you check it out (and not just because I'm in it, either!).

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white, Spring Rain, SU! Midnight Muse; Ink:  Memento & Stampin Up!; Stamps:  MFT; Button:  PTI; Dies:  MFT

Congratulations Rosie on your Guest Artist Spot. Your card-making style is perfect for magazines, as they are so pristine, well made and stunning, plus they look relatively 'SIMPLE' and you know how I feel about this word!
What most people do not realise is that you have to have talent!
Great card too.
Smiles:)

I just had to pop back and let you know how awesome it is to see your name right there on the cover of the Take Ten!! I used to wait impatiently for every issue, but honestly, the card choices got too collage-ee and uber-layered for my tastes so I haven't bought an issue in many, many years. I'm so pleased to have you bring it back into my life!!
