Wish You Were Here

Here's a card a made for a guy.  Didn't want it too cutsie. It was also created for the My Favorite Things Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast stampers.  It feels good to be creating and making room for new stuff. (As if I need new stuff!) Hope you all like it.  
Here's what I used:  MFT Die-namics First Place Award Ribbon, MFT Document it Days and Dates, MFT Die-namics Camera & Stamp Set, MFT First Class Friend and Die-Namics Fishtail Flags Layers Stax. The ink is SU Basic Black & Only Orange and the Paper is also Su Basic Black, Tangerine Tango and Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Paper.  Black Brads

Birthday STAR!

Finally!! My first entry to a challenge.  This card is actually my first entry to the MFT Guest Designer Contest.  It was a little different for me to design a card using a sketch.  Usually, I'll have a purpose and come up with my own design.  Well, I had the sketch but no purpose so my son has a friend with a birthday coming up and thought, perfect! I'll make his friend a card using the contest sketch.  Hope you all enjoy! 

Products I used:

Stamps:  MFT Die-Namics At the Movies
               MFT Die-Namics First Place Award Ribbon

Embossing Folder:  SU Perfect Polka Dots Folder

Card Stock & Paper:  SU Basic Black CS, So Safron CS, Real Red CS, Whisper White CS & Real Red Designer Paper

Ink: SU Basic Black, Real Red & Crushed Curry

Embossing Powder: SU White

Thats it!  No I just have to figure out how to upload it to the contest site. Wish my luck!!!

Welcome to my first blog!  This is so exciting.  I decided to create a blog so I can participate in all the wonderful challenges at My Favorite Things and Splitcoast Stampers.  Participating in these challenges will force me to use some of my over stocked craft room supplies. After all, I need room for the new stuff! Hoping this blog will inspire readers to   keep their creative juices flowing and take me to my next level. What a great way to share what I'm doing and help inspire others.
