GUESS WHAT?!?!?

I am i{heart}2stamp's Guest Designer for December!!!!! I was blown away when Jen del Muro asked me about a month ago, and it's been so hard to keep it under my hat! :) Jen del Muro, or genie1314, is a SCS Dirty Dozen alum, and her work can be seen in publications and as a Design Team member for Verve Visual and My Favorite Things. I have been a fan of her work since I first saw it at Splitcoaststampers. So, you can imagine my surprise when I received a PM from her through SCS!!!! I am so excited and honored!! Wooohooo!!!!!


Jen also asked if I'd do a sample for her Sketch for You to Try (SFYTT). Here it is, and it's also on her blog. I used a $1 Michael's stamp -- I stamped the entire image once in the middle, then just the glass once on each side. I stamped another glass, cut it out, and popped it up on the center image. They are colored with my Prismacolors and covered in Crystal Effects to give them a realistic look. The paper is Holiday Words from the Christmas Collection by Flair Designs. Cardstock is SU! Garden Green and Real Red. The ribbon is SU! 5/8" Real Red grosgrain, and the brads are Sugarcoated Brads by Doodlebug. I sponged around the image panel with Real Red ink, and I machine stitched around the paper with white thread to create a border.

I'm headed out this morning for the annual Christmas shopping day with Megan, my sisters-in-law, and my nieces. Wish me luck!! And, thanks for sharing my joy!! *smile* Have a great Saturday!!
