Pink Flower Card

Made this card for a challenge as a Fisk-a-teer. It did not win but I sure had fun making it.
The all-over background stamp is from Stampin' Up. I masked off the lower right corner and used the sentiment stamp from Rubber Stamped in the masked area.
The gorgeous papers in the design and in the flower are from the beautiful Madeline Collection from Prima Marketing. I used all sorts and sizes of flower punches to make the flower. And then, I added the diamonds! Can't have a great card without diamonds.
I did pick up a bit of a glare on the picture but you get a good idea I think of the card.


Fashionable Stamping Challenge

I stumbled across this site a few minutes ago and I LOVE it. They seem to have a big emphasis on stamping and vintage designs. Looks like they have some great challenges too. I think I will make a card to enter in their latest challenge. Ooooo, so much fun! Here is their URL.


Writer's Conference

Just got home from a fabulous writer's conference in Arlington, TX. It was sponsored by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. I learned so much and got a great critique on a manuscript I had submitted to one of the editors attending. I have two agents willing to look at my material. I am really excited to be getting one step closer to publication. I'll let you guys know when I know anything. Thanks for indulging me for a moment. Check out www.scbwi.org if you are interested in joining our regional group.
