Happy Birthday and Design Team Call!!

Hi Chickies!!

How was your weekend?!  Mine was super productive!!  I got most of my Christmas shopping done, I paid my bills, and got a TON of crafting done!!  That's pretty good for me . . . I tend be a slug on the weekends.  Hehehe

One of the projects that I finished up this weekend was this fun little Kaiser Craft Hand Bag Tidy.  I know, I know . . . it's a bit BRIGHT, huh?!  But I actually made it for the Stamping Bella 3rd Birthday Bash Contest.  Sadly, I didn't win, but I was pretty darned thrilled with how these two projects turned out.  If I had a cute studio to put this in, I'd use it for my colored pencils - it's a little organizer that would look so cute on a studio shelf or just in your craft room.  I had a blast altering this and would definitely make another one for grins

Check out these darling little charms that I added to it!  I stamped Fabby onto some Bright White Shrinky Dink, colored her with my Copics, cut her out and shrunk her up with my heat embossing gun.  OMG!  Fun! Fun!  Right?!  The other two charms were some I picked up a Mike's.

The card features one of my all time favorite Stamping Bella images - "Fabby."  Isn't she too cute?  I just love Christy Croll's images (she's the artist).  In fact I bought a couple digital images from her at her Etsy store.  Cute stuff, I tell ya!

Lastly, I wanted to mention that ABC Toys & Crafts is looking for some new Design Team members.  Can I tell you how much I've enjoyed my time on the ABC Toys & Crafts DT?!!  Seriously, I get to design with a ton of manufacturer's stamps that I LOVE, I get a very generous discount as well as a box full of the most amazing crafty goodness (Martha Stewart punches, Hero Arts clear stamps, My Cute Stamps, just to name a few of my faves!)  AND I get to interact with some of the most talented and fun stamping gal pals EVAH!!  What more could you want, people?!!  Interested?  You can get all the details HERE.  Please send in your application - I'd be over the moon with happiness if one of my chickies got to join the team.  How fun would that be?!!  Time is running out, so get your application in NOW!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I'll be back tomorrow with a bit of a "Sneak Peek" of some new My Cute Stamps for you!
