It is always such an honor when someone asks you to be a featured artist or guest designer. The sweet and wonderful Cindy featured my first collage piece that I did for the Smitten class in her online weekly magazine, Whimsical Musings Magazine. There are other featured artists with incredible and beautiful creations, so stop by for a visit and say hello to Cindy! This is my featured piece from a prior post and the little school girl is my MaMa!
Speaking of featured artist over at Cindy's magazine, Petra was a featured artist for the "Romance" article. Petra had a special drawing and guess who won that??? Yes, it was I! Remember the piece she created for Gingersnap Creations, "coffee filters." Well it is mine, along with some lovely twine and the sweetest little tag. Love it so much, Petra and a big thank you! If you have not visited Petra, treat yourself to some fabulous talent at her Kunterbunt Cottage.

I used my new, hot off the press, Tim Holtz ATC embossing folders! I did also buy the ATC steel rule die, but am a little disappointed that the finished cut piece is slightly smaller than the EF! No big deal, but I thought for sure they would be a perfect fit. So, I decided to just emboss the actual tag and do the Cuttlebug Highlights technique from the Technique Junkies. I used Distress Inks for the background and have a punch with all the card shapes! I used the colors that would be found on a deck of cards and keep this purposely with little embellishments. It is going to be a bookmark for a card player! I went on a little shopping spree yesterday at Scrapbooking Made Simple. Stacey knows that when anything new comes in concerning "The main man Tim," that I want it. She always holds on to items she knows I will be needing! Thanks to Stacey and the SMS girls!
Thank you for visiting! I truly do love your comments!
