Can I have your Autograph?? CPS 104
Happy Monday Everyone! If THAT isn't an oxymoron, I don't know WHAT is ;).
Hope everyone had a good weekend. We certainly did. The birthday party was great. The kids had a great time, and in turn, so did we. Today, we just hung out at home, getting a few things that I've been putting off done.
I got my new THE Dawn McVey set in the mail from PTI yesterday, so I wanted to break it in right. Headed over to CPS this morning and saw that PTI is sponsoring this week's contest...how fun! I did last week's sketch, but didn't upload in time...I'll post it later this week.
So, THE Dawn, is a friend of mine, and we've been teasing her about her popularity. For some reason, she doesn't think that she's become a 'name' in the stamping world, yet we all do, so my friend Laura, or was it Jenn started saying 'THE' Dawn. I was so excited to see that Damask Designs SOLD OUT! YAHOO - also glad, of course, that I got one :)
So, tonight, I sat downstairs, and couldn't think of a better person to make my FIRST card with Damask Designs for. THE Dawn, of course!! I used CPS Sketch 104 In line with our teasing, I picked out this great sentiment from Verve Stamps, it's part of the Great Expectations set. All teasing aside - it's so exciting to see this new adventure for our friend.
Here are some words, from one of my FAVORITE people...Jason Mraz "I know my job wouldn’t exist without listeners and readers, those who share my joy and my journeys thru the time and space. I would still have my art, but the vibrations wouldn’t be as strong without the audiences that gather and the collective souls who sing from their cars and within their showers. You make the art more immediate by accepting it, applying it, and continuing to share it on your own plain.". Don't you think stamp designers get a little excited when they see THEIR sets in use??? I think that's way cool.
I picked Raspberry Fizz, as it's Dawn's favorite color - and stamped away. I cut a slit in the card halfway to thread the ribbon through, and then made my little bow. This was a fun sketch, I can see myself using it again.
Before I go - thought I'd share a few photos to make you smile...my little ham...and my cheeseball ;).
