Exciting News!!!!!

Hello & Happy Wednesday Everyone!
I've got Super Exciting news to share!
I'm Thrilled & Honored to say I was asked
to be apart of the Firefly Crafts Design Team!

Firefly Crafts is an online Craft Store.... They just opened
up in May of this year! Debbie, the owner has some awesome 
Deals on Dies, Inks & more.... Since it's a NEW STORE
She doesn't have a huge selection yet, but is working on it everyday!
She sells name brand products that we all love.... 
Her shipping is amazingly FAST and she is the sweetest lady!

I'm truly honored that she sought me out to design for her!
I'm excited to start using & sharing the projects I make with
the items she carries in her store.... I hope you guys will go take a 
peek and what she has to offer - 

Today we are having a Challenge over on the 
I hope you guys will join that group as well...

Today's Challenge is Tic Tac Toe

You can pick any 3 items, just like playing tic tac toe

- I Chose - Buttons, Teal, Shape -

I just LOOOVE how this turned out.... SO cute! :)

-- Info on my Card --

I made the card using the Gina Marie Banners die set... I
offset the banner die on my folded cardstock & cut it out on my sizzix machine.  I did the same thing with the layered piece, so it would sit perfectly... I then added my Elephant stamped image & String stamps... I masked off the Elephant so I could do the background coloring of the sky with some Tumbled glass then I cut out a cloud shape and used that as a mask to create the cloud effect using the salty ocean ink 
I used some Twisted Citron & Mowed Lawn to create the grass look
Then I took the Grass stamp and added it to the bottom
Once the background was done... I took the mask off the elephant and colored him in with my Copic Markers - C1, C3, C5, E02
Found some buttons in my stash added some twine & glued them
right where the string lines are - Finished it off with the Celebrate Sentiment from the Ellie stamp set
