My Favorite Things Stamps...WSC # 35 & Sept. 2011 GDT Contest....You're Such a Smartie!


Hey Stampin' friends! Did you have a great Labour Day? I relaxed and didn't really do anything even though I should have probably done some house work and laundry. Chris and I just got back on Saturday from a 6 day trip to Chicago to celebrate out 15th wedding anniversary and to check out the Windy City!  It is such a beautiful city and we had a great time! So much to do and see and we will have to go back as we didn't get to see or do all that we had planned. I was so excited to get to see my cousin Ashley and her fiance, Jeff and my Aunt Cecily (my Dad's sister) and Uncle Gary. They took us out to a beautiful restaurant! It was so nice to chat and visit. We had an absolutely fabulous time!!! If you are reading this Ashley...Hi *waving* thank you so much for a lovely visit, hun!!!!  

Well, it is the first day of school for my kids and they are growing up so quickly. Hannah is in grade 7 and I just can't believe she is old enough to be in grade 7...eekkk....I remember grade 7 like it was yesterday!!! I have to say that she is one happy girl as we got her a Macbook Pro and she is thrilled to bits with it!  Kieran is in grade 5 this year and that is freakin' me out too! I have such big kids now. Where has the time gone!?

Well, enough rambling I do have a card to share with you today for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Sketch Challenge and I also made this card for the MFT September Guest Designer Contest MFTGUESTDT0911. The Challenge for the Contest is Rip & Roll. Keeping my fingers, toes, everything crossed as I would soooooo love to be a GDT for MFT!!!!!!

 So, for my card I decided to use sweet Emma with Her Backpack Pure Innocence set. Such a sweet image and I teamed her up with BasicGrey Oxford 6x6 papers that I so love!!! I coloured Emma with my Copics and paper pieced her wee kilt! I distress and ripped the edges of my paper with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool and I used my Retro Rolled flower Die-nmaics and My Favorite Felt in Cherry On Top Red to make the adorable rolled flower. This is the first time I used my Retro Rolled Flower Die-namics die and I love how it looks and it was really easy to roll up too. I added some leaves with my Die-namics Flower and Leaf Trio set and My Favorite Felt in Sour Apple Green. I also use my Die-nmaics Scallop Ribbon Border and Simply Scallops Border Die-nmaics. One of the sentiments that comes with Emma is stamped on the Die-nmaics File Tab.

Here is the inside...I distress the edges again, added another Retro Rolled Rose and stamped another sentiment that comes with Emma on the Label Die from the You Move Me Stamp and Die-nmaics set.

Well, Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek at my card for the MFT Wednesday Stamp Club Challenge and for the MFT September GDT Contest!

Hope you have a stampin' Great Day!

The blue & kraft scalloping at the base of your image panel is stunning & I love the combination of colours you used - you always have such an interesting mixture . I love your hair colouring too & the inside is great fun whilst still being classy. All the best for the GDT. I have a MacBook Pro & absolutely love it.
