I HAVE EXCITING NEWS!

I'm doing the "Happy Dance"!! Yes, I have been invited to join the Design Team over at Speedy the Cat Friends challenge blog! I have been dying to tell you all and finally the day is here!
I have totally fell in love with these stamps! This is such a great opportunity to working with such talented ladies!!

For my first card and challenge # 15. I choose this fabulous set " South West Cowboy" By MFP. I love south west art and this set is right up my ally.
This week the challenge at SCF is to create your own embellies.



I made the stars for my embellishments. Using the star spellbinders nestabililies. I used 5 layers of card stock. I glued them together and sponged a little on the edges. Then punched out 2 holes using a small hole punch.
If you want to play along with us you could be a winner! a FREE Mark's Finest Papers stamp set as a prize! For every 5o entries, we pick ANOTHER random winner! [Yes, you may play more than once] If you use MFP stamps, you are entered twice!
The stamps and paper used in this card is from Mark's Finest Papers.

Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.
