Tilda in the park AND some NEWS!!!!!


This is Tilda in Apron, sitting on a park bench enjoying the sunshine! I stamped the bench & coloured it with gamsol & prismas, then stamped Tilda on SU watercolour paper and coloured her the same (notice I dirtied up her knees?? What kid goes to the park and doesn't come back with dirty knees??) I coloured and cut out the birds, also from Magnolia. As you can tell from the shadows, I popped out the birds and Tilda (sorry bout the shadows!) and mounted it on a pre-printed card base from Michael's. I made the grass with prismas & gamsol. I also cut it down to 4x4. That's it..... a simple scene card!!
AND HERE IS MY NEWS: (I can hardly contain myself!!) My VERY FAVOURITE EBAY store, Simon Says Stamp just came out with their own line of stamps - they are VERY cool - 19 sets in all, very versatile & a variety to choose from. Anyways, Heidi, who is THE most FABULOUS woman in the world asked me if I would be on their DESIGN TEAM!!!! I didn't believe it at first, lil 'ol me?!?! WHAT?!?!?!?! So now, I'm an Official Honorary Design Team member!!! WHEEEEE!!! (Tim wasn't as thrilled as I was so you can imagine how badly I wanted to share this with you all?!?! MEN!!!) You really need to check out her store - they have EVERYTHING!! They carry Penny Black, A Muse, Hero Arts, Inkadinkado, Stampendous, Tim Holtz products, Stampabilities, SU, House Mouse, paper, ink, markers, storage things...its crazy FULL of stuff!!! And if they don't have it, they will do their darnedest to find it for you! Heidi has found me a bunch of retired stamps that I HAD to have!! And I've spent a lot of money there - I am sure I've already paid for her son's college tuition!! LOL You can't beat GOOD customer service nowadays & they definitely have it!!! Check it out!!

OMG Chris this is just the MOST EXCITING new!!! I am soooo excited for you!!! WOWZERS. I can just imagine how excited you are!! I am just soooo excited for you my friend. :-)

I look forward to seeing you on the 6th. I went to Fields but there were none of those frames left! I'm going to check my stash and see if I have any extras! I will bring my supplies for making the "bird panel" on the 6th. Teh sentiment comes from my PTI anniversary set Simple Little Things - it was the free set you got for buying 12 sets -- I love it! Apparently it is for sale on ebay for like $60 if you are interested ;-)

Woohoo, congrats on the design team position!! Woooohooo! I am so happy for you. Before you know it all of us in SBS4 will be on a design team of some sort if we ALL aren't already. I will have to check, but if memory serves me right ALOT of us are now! This is AWESOME and it sounds like you have SO MUCH to choose from with a great collection like that. DH's just don't get it. I told my DH that means I will be getting new stamp sets in the mail for FREE! Then he was excited ;) lol
