Crafty Sprouts New Stamp release & challenge!

Ok.. so Ms. Erika aka Crafty Sprouts had released her 2nd New Stamp set. It is amazing!  Check this out.  Erika is also my neighbor, ok so not next door neighbor put she lives like less than a mile from me.  

This is strange we both got selected to Kristal’s design team a few months back and that’s how I found out she was a neighbor!  I was like oh cool she lives in San Antonio too but then I was like WOWO she lives like really close! LOL  So I should be stalking her mail box and see if I can intercept some of her stamps when the mail man passes.  Anyway just wanted to let yall know it’s a SMALL WORLD AFTER ALL!

So Ms. Erika has a sketch challenge to go along with her New stamp release and I decided to join in on the fun.

Her stamps are awesome and I so need to get my hands on them reason why I am planning on intercepting a box! Gotta know when the next shipment comes in!  Just love her barcode stamp on each set!!

Here is the sketch:

Here is my card.. well cards. 001 (640x215)

Couldn’t decide which way looked better so I did different styles. Cards are an invitation to my CTMH party. If yall are interested in joining my party, please email me at felkatz at gmail dot com and I can send you on online invite to shop at your leisure! Gotta promote my party some how! hahaha Hope you like my card!

Meet the KinderStampO Guest Design Team Blog Hop

Howdy Folks!!  I am so honored to be part of Jessica’s aka KinderStampO guest designers! WoW! How awesome is that! 

I am sure throughout the blog hop you have seen all the wonderful folks share with you the MOTTO by which Jessica from KinderStampO goes by “ Live. craft. Inspire”

The idea is to share a little bit about ourselves listed under the word live, a little bit about ourcrafty style under the word Craft and a little bit about how we get inspiration and how they hope to inspire under the word inspire.

So here goes my interpretation of the motto:  LIVE. CRAFT. INSPIRE. 

LIVE:  I am an elementary special education teacher and work with Special needs kids.  I am so loving it! I never thought I was going to have so much fun doing this! I heart it the most!  When I’m not teaching, I’m a girlfriend to a middle school special education teacher, stepmom to his 17 y/o daughter and a softball stepmom!  hehe   I love my family!   Then when all is said and done.. I’m a SCRAPPER and CARDMAKER.

CRAFT: My crafty style is what ever comes to mind!  I really do not have a plan on how I am going to create something. I’m a fly by the seat of your pants kinda girl.  I get the picture I want to scrap. Find papers to match it and there ya have it!  Now for card making I love doing challenges!  I love following sketches  which now I’m figuring I need to do that for my layouts.  I need all the help I can get.  Keep in mind I make lots of mistakes but hey you can always “scrap” it and start over! 

INSPIRE:  I get all my inspiration from my fellow crafter online! I love YOUTUBE! Darn that YOUTUBE making me spend so much!  I get so much inspiration from those wonderful crafters on youtube! I hope I can inspire others to love this hobby. I like to youtube my process of cardmaking and layouts (which I haven’t in a while, with school starting up again). I never edit out my mistakes because I want people to see hey no one is perfect!  SO I hope that will inspire other to create without fear!

I look forward to all of y’all seeing my creations!  Little nervous but hey its only paper! LOL
