Good Morning America (been a long time since I have been able to say that!!)

Guess what?  I have been asked to serve on the "Try Stampin' On Tuesday" Design Team (click here for website)!!  I am very excited and feel very honored to be asked.  The team coordinator is CherylAnn Robinson, a fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator.  The other two Stampin' Up Demonstrators and design team members are Kristen Conant (Rubber Hugs by Kristen) and Tracey Old (A Stampers Touch).  Please check out their fabulous blogs, I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Our sketch challenge for this week (using a Valentine theme):
Here is the sketch!!

And here is what I came up with using the above sketch.
I had no intention of putting the card in a frame when I started, but because of all the vintage going on, I decided to put it in this frame that is over 100 years old. (There is a story that goes with this as to how I happen to have this frame, but cannot share with you on my blog, nor do I want anybody else to share it with you -- meaning you, Kathleen, or all of goodies on my list for you will be removed.)  When I get tired of it in the frame, I can take it out and send it on as a card.  I used two different techniques in this card:  Iris Folding and Cracked Glass and here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  "Grateful Greetings"
  • Card Stock:  Always Artichoke, Pear Pizzazz, Rose Red, and Very Vanilla
  • Ink:  Rose Red, Crumb Cake, and VersaMark
  • Accessories"Springtime Vintage Designer Series Paper," "Square Lattice Textured Impressions Embossing Folder," "Frost White Shimmer Paint," "Victoria 5/8" Crochet Trim," "Rose Red Ink Refill," "Heart-to-Heart Extra-Large Punch," "Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware," "Antique Brads," "Vanilla Rosettes," "Rose Red Marker," and "Glassy Glaze Enamel." 
I hope you liked my design for the challenge.  For a chance to win a prize make sure you join in on the fun challenges each week (they begin each Tuesday and run for the week --check out CherylAnn's blog for more information).  Make sure you stop by the other Design Team's blogs and then create your card to submit!!  Can't wait to see what everybody comes up with.
