I will busy this week finishing up what I can for Saturday and getting ready for my son and his wife to come home from California. He is coming home on pre-deployment leave which will make it even harder when the time comes for him to leave.
I am so sad I was not selected for the Belles 'N Whistles Design Team. Oh well, I'll just have to wait to see the NEW stamps after they come out and I will have to pay for them!
If your like the belles 'n whistles stamps then you are familiar with the talented artist who designs those fabulous stamps, Elisabeth Bell. She is now designing and selling her own digital stamps and on May 14th she introduced a NEW digital stamp, Rapunzel. Rapunzel is so absolutely adorable and beautiful. You can find her own line of digital stamps here http://www.zhibit.org/elisabethbell/blog
I will try to scan some of the tags I made to share before I head off to sell them. Today I created 6 tags using the totally NEW Fluer Anya from The Greeting Farms. She is absolutely darling and such fun to color. For today however, I have a card to share that I made this week in the midst of all the craziness. This is the HG Classy Digi from The Greeting Farms. Until next time create something incredible, follow your bliss and have and Extraordinary Day!

This card is made with Belles 'N Whistles "Cupcake" Stamp. I created the background with distressing inks and water on watercolor paper then added the cut out stamped imaged and embellishments. I also used this stamp on a card I posted the other day. As you can see the Belles 'N Whistles stamps are so very cute and versatile, they can be used on almost any card or project. Is it any wonder they are one of my absolute favorite rubber stamp companies!

Following are the samples I sent in for the DRS Design Design Team Application. I did NOT make the design team this time.
I wasn't all that sad because just before I heard from them I found out about another Design Team Call which I am totally more excited about. I will be posting that entry here by Wednesday so come back to check out that card! Until then be cleverly creative and have and extraordinary day!

I still haven't heard anything from DRS Designs as to the status of their Design Team Picks, so I'm still hoping for the best! Then again in has only been 2 days and I cannot remember if they had a date listed when they'd make their decision by!
I made this card yesterday. The stamp is called "Cupcake" and it is from "Belles 'N Whistles".

When I find out about making the design team or not I will let you all know and post the projects I submitted at that time. I can't show them yet just in case I need to do something else with them 1st as a part of the application process or in case they need to showcase them 1st. Have no idea since I've not been a part of a DT before.

So here, as promised, are the samples that did not make my cut to be send off for the DT Call. I still have 2 cards that I'm not displaying today that are over the 3 projects asked for. I'm debating whether I should send them or not. That would be 5 project submissions instead of 3. Two of the individuals, I polled to help me choose, chose these two plus one more and the other two choose the other 3 projects.
Well the DT Call Application has to be in tomorrow so I have 24 hours to decide what to do. If I decide not to send the additional 2 you will see them here tomorrow. If I decide to send them then I'll find something else to show you here. I have lots of B-day cards to start working on so I'm sure to have a project to show you!
Until tomorrow enjoy these samples and get inspired, be creative and have an extraordinary day!

I used prisma color pencils to color and rubbing alcohol to blend the colors. I find that I prefer the rubbing alcohol to blend much better than gamasil or turpenoid. You will use whatever the store has set up for you to use this week. I've also used a Happy Mother's Day computer generated label on the sample. You will have a choice of using either Happy Mother's Day or Thinking of You.
Make sure you get into the Stamp Express this week to get in on this Make & Take.
Check back here soon for peeks at those sample cards I decided not to send in for the DT Call. And later when I find out either way the sample projects that I did send in! Meanwhile be happy, creative and have an extraordinary day!

I don't have any great pics to share today but if you check out club Anya at TGF; they are having their introduction Blog Hop. So if you haven't already; hop on over their and check it out. As always their big Bog Hop winner will will received all the NEW Stamps!
Sorry no pics today but I promised a whole lot as soon as I decide which ones I'm sending off for the DT Call. I created 10 cards and 1 8"x 8: scrap book page and 1 tag for this. From these creations I must pick only 3 projects to send, so you see my dilemma! I will show you what I do not send, in the next day or so. Then the ones I send in, I will show you after I find out the news on the DT winners.
Until next time get creative and have and Extraordinary day!
