Hi stampers!  Sorry about the shouty title but I have super exciting news!  Probably the most exciting stampy news ev-ah!  I found out this week that I've made the list of 20 finalists for the Artisan Award Design Team for Stampin' Up!!!!  Gah!!!!  I am shut-the-front-door and over-the moon excited!  And I apologize for not announcing it sooner but we have been in Vegas:-) So, it was super exciting to get the call in Vegas!  I'm still in SHOCK that they picked me as I feel very unworthy seeing the other finalists!  What a group!  I'm so excited but a little sad that some of my friends who are AWESOME-SAUCE aren't on the list with me!  But my good friend Wendy can read how it went down over on her blog here.  It was kinda funny:-)  I really don't remember much of the call or what the VERY sweet lady said as I was freaking out!  I'm just glad we happened to be in our room instead of out on the strip or in the casino where I probably wouldn't have heard the phone:-)  I thought I'd try my luck at the slots after I got the call....seems my luck had run out, lol!

Anyway I've already gotten a lot of comments and congratulations and I want to thank everyone for their kind words:-)  Of course I really want to win but it's really just an honor to make the finals and again, I'm very in awe of all the talent on that short list!  It's going to be a long wait to find out the winners at convention!  I can't wait to share my projects with you but I can't just you'll have to suffer along with me and the rest of the finalists, hehe!

I can show you this card though!  I figured I'd show you a simple one after all the shouty up there...and I'm tired...I need a vacation from my vacation, lol!
Stampin' Supplies:
Stamps:  Made for you
Paper:  Whisper white, baja breeze, midnight muse, patio party DSP
Ink:  Midnight muse
Accessories:  Circle punch, subtles brads, baker's twine

I've been meaning to make one of these circle banner cards for a while and since I just can't seem to get enough of the patio party DSP......well I had no choice did I?  It was quite simple to just fold the circles over.  I used mini glue dots to keep them in place and before I adhered them I made sure to crease them really good with my bone folder.

Well, I need to rest up!  I'm home for two days and then off for a work conference!  Not very good timing on my part!  I'll try to post again soon!

Happy stamping!
