You're Absolutely Fabulous


You're absoluetly fabulous.
Yes, you, the wonderful people that come here and visit me.
The wonderful people that leave wonderful comments that brighten my day.
Yes, you.
You're absolutely fabulous.

I'd just like to take a teeny tiny quick moment to squeal here. I made the May Arts Design Team! Woo-hoo! I'm so excited and I'm so very thankful for everyone that left me a comment and for your support! Thank you!

Carrying on my excitement by participating in Moxie Fab World's I'm So Excited Challenge! This card was a bit out of my comfort zone but I *think* I like it. The background is a vintage pattern with lovely large typography. I layered on top of that a die cut dress form (thanks Lynn!), the sentiment panel, some May Arts Natural Burlap String and a button.

I was also inspired by the beautiful collage at Jay Gee's Nook Challenge.  Have you seen it? so beautiful!

  3. Congratulations Karen! I am so happy for you and your new adventure on the DT. I just adore the silhouette die-cut and it goes perfect with these challenges. Have fun creating with May Arts. I will have to see what that actually is because I am unfamiliar with it.
