Guess Who Is Featured Stamper?

Somebody pinch me!  It's like being given a wonderful Surprise Party....I found out yesterday that I am the Featured Stamper of the Week at Splitcoaststampers!

My family and I were at my youngest daughter's dance recital, and I was checking my emails while waiting for the show to begin.  My friend, Bonnie, emailed to congratulate me for being FS and that is how I found out.  Thanks, Bonnie!

(If you would like to play along with the Featured Stamper challenge, check HERE for the simple rules.) 

This is a card I made weeks ago and had scheduled to post when times got busy.  Guess what?  It's that time!  On my one-and-only trip to Hobby Lobby in New Jersey, I bought some Authentique papers and this really cool stamp by Stampabilities and paired them on this card.


Love how it turned out!  Those roses make me happy.  :-)





My weekend was incredibly hectic, but a lot of fun.  Packed into it:  Field Day for my youngest, a fancy dance for my eldest, a casual dance for my youngest (and I was a chaperone), dance school awards show, and a dance recital.  Whew!  I feel blessed to be able to partake in all of these events.  Hope my kids remember when they are older.  ;-)



Stamps: Do More - Stampabilities  Paper: Basic Gray - SU; Essentials Collection - Authentique Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black Fibers: white satin ribbon; white twine - SU Accessories:  clear faceted button - Stampin' Up!

Oops!


A big congrats, Colleen on being FS. I got the message from Heather, our Punchie friend, while travelling yesterday. I almost never get to play in that challenge, but would love to case one of your cards...so, maybe I can get that done soon.

Your card is gorgeous and the paper is scrumptious. Love the sentiment, too.

Your photos are great..so glad you shared. You daughters are adorable and keeping you busy, busy.

Your flower garden is blooming beautifully, too.

Did you know there is a blog badge for FS if you want it?

A beautiful card, Colleen! I love the floral paper with the gray and the delicate look of the sentiment panel. Very nice! How well I remember the flurry of activity when my son was in school. And I only had one child! I couldn't keep up the pace these days. Guess that's why we have kids when we're young! Enjoy!

A HUGE congrats on being Featured Stamper, Colleen! I know I am waaaaaay late, but I'm planning to make a card in your honor--I'm having trouble narrowing down which one to CASE! (and having trouble finding time to sit down and create for fun). I LOVE this gorgeous creation--stunning paper and that's one awesome stamp. This is fabulous! I hope you had fun being in the FS spotlight!
