Sorry for the late post today – I had to teach a Zumba class this morning!
A clean and simple card this week. It’s my first Penny Black stamp… I like it! I used Copics to color it in. I wanted my city girl to be very urban and chic. The black dotted background reminds me of steel girders, which you would find in the city, so that’s kind of where my inspiration came from.
My sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set called Fabulous Phrases. It has 28 different words that you can use in any combination.
On a totally unrelated topic… I posted to my Facebook page last week that I was selected to compete in the Michael’s Craft Master’s competition. It’s a new show on their Web site where they have 3 people compete against each other per episode. We recorded my show last week. It was so cool, yet completely and utterly stressful – being creative under pressure is no easy task for me. They gave us a theme for our craft and 2 items we HAD to include in our creation. Then, they set us loose in the Michael’s store for 10 minutes with a $50 gift card to buy anything else we needed. It was kind of funny – the camera man was chasing me around the store!! After that, they gave us 1.5 hours to build our masterpiece. Half-way through they presented us with a “wild card” item that we also HAD to incorporate. I’m telling you – this wildcard item was completely unrelated – panic mode. Next, the judges deliberated and picked a winner. My show will be on their Web site on March 18th, so I’ll send a link to remind you. If you read the article on parenting I posted last week, you’ll understand what I mean when I say I’m glad to have participated, but maybe wasn’t so glad during the process!
Anyway, enjoy the video have a great week!!
