Celebrating you

Before I share my card today I want to share some exciting news.  I have been selected to be on the Dies R Us Design Team !!!!!  You all know how much I love using dies so this is very exciting for me.  My first project will be posted on Monday April 4th. So please stop by and check it out.

Now on to the card I made for a friend at church that is also one of our Sunday School teachers.  At HSN I bought a subscription to Crafter's Companion Inspiration Magazine.  Inside the issue I received was these poppy stamps and matching dies, I colored them with Aqua markers then shaped them with my stylus and a mat to give them some dimension and hand cut the leaves and buds.

Sheena Douglas -- Victorian Floral, poppy stamp and dies, Colored w/Spectrum Aqua markers
Rasberry Road design- love lives here papers
Spellbinders -- Classic Ovals and Floral Oval dies
Penny Black -- Sprinkles and Smiles sentiment stamp set
Cuttlebug -- Swiss dots embossing folder

Wishing you a very creative and happy weekend, and may you all stay safe through these spring storms the country is having!

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and letting me know you did,

I'm excited for you, Connie! I saw you in the line up. You always do such pretty things with your dies and I'll look forward to your first post for DRU. There is nothing new on the Inspiration Blog yet. I can't wait to see! This card is just lovely. Beautiful colors and one of my favorite dies. Those flowers are fabulous and what a great bonus with the magazine! A very feminine and beautiful card!
