(if you aren't old enough to remember that song, I'm sad for you. Just sayin'. Peaches & Herb have been a very important influence on my life; "Shake Your Groove Thing" is one of my personal anthems, you know.)
Guess what, caro amici? I'm *back* in an official capacity with one of MY FAVORITE stamp companies. Can you guess what it is? I've already given you a hint... oh, alright, I'll spell it out for you:
I'm one of the newest members of MFT's Challenge Team!
What does that mean? Well, each Wednesday, I'll be telling you about MFT's Wednesday Stamp Club challenge for the week and sharing a sample. I'll also be linking you to my fellow Challenge Team members. Here's even better scoop: I'm not the only new gal joining MFT Challenge Team -- there are three other well-known stampers coming on board, and they are SUPERSTARS that you all know and love! I'm not at liberty to mention them myself, but I can tell you that all of them are dear friends of mine, and one in particular is someone I have a *history* with...
Let's just say, with the addition of us four 'newbies' combined with Alex, Dawn, and Wendy? The MFT Challenge Team is sure to be the *spiciest* team in the industry!
For all the scoop, you'll need to visit Kim(The MFT Lady)'s blog. In the meantime, let me tell you about this week's MFT Challenge: Floral Fantasy! Create a project using flowers. If you post on an online gallery, use the keyword MFTWSC08252010 so we can ooh and aah over your submission.
Here's what I came up with for this week's challenge:
I used the Pure Innocence -- Bunch of Blooms image, and created my very first rolled flower embellishment using the Rolled Flower Die-namic with a little felt centered with an adhesive pearl. The leaves were created using the Sheltering Tree and Leaf Die-namic. After making one, I have to say, I LOVE these rolled flowers! They remind me of Mary Engelbreit's rose buds, don't you think? One more thing I want to point out: the use of skinny ribbon there at the bottom. My idea was to use it in the way that twine has been used of late; you know, wrapping it around a couple of times and tying it off. I'm thinking that I may just be initiating a trend here. What Justin Timberlake did for sexy, I shall do for skinny ribbon!
Well, maybe not. We'll see. But just in case this takes off, you can say you saw it here first! ;)
Okay, friends. That's all I've got for you now. There ain't no mo. But do come play with me and all my MFT Challenge Team buddies this week -- details are on Kim's blog -- and you just might win a shopping spree at the MFT Boutique!
