I'm soooo excited about this post today because I'm entering it for a DT position at MCT!!!
Yes, you read that correctly...Emma from MCT is having a DT call!!! When I saw her post the other day I just about peed my pants from the excitement (I know, probably a TMI thing, huh), but it's true!!! I have been such a HUGE fan of Emma's for a very long time now, no offense to all you wonderful bloggers out there, but her blog has to be one of my all time favorites!!! Her designs are always sooo cute and I love her videos, she has been such an inspiration for me!!!
I am in LOVE with her stamps and dies, they are like no other and they are made by the same great manufacturer as PKS!!! In fact it was Emma who turned me on to PKS, those adorable little faces are just priceless. They both have their own drawer in my craft room specifically for them!!! I have never been on a DT before, but I would LOVE for my 1st experience to be on Emma's, she is one of the sweetest and most patient people (except for may Veronica who did my blog, lol)I know out there in Bloggerville!!! Her current DT is AMAZING and I would consider it a HUGE honor to be on her DT with them!!! Seriously people, even if I weren't trying out for her DT, I totally mean every word of this, because it's true!!! I just LOVE Emma, I admit to stalking her, but only in the blogger sort of way of course. :D
I knew exactly what I wanted to make for this project, I wanted to showcase my new blog and my LOVE for Gilby and my "Puppy Hugs" sign off. Those of you who follow my blog know that I recently had a makeover by the very talented Veronica, it turned out better than I had ever hoped!!! I actually got the idea of "Puppy Hugs" from Miss Emma, as her sign off is "Gypsy Hugs". Early on, I asked her if she was okay with me using it and of course she didn't mind at all, she thought it was funny that I was even asking, LOL!
I'm sooo proud of how this turned out, I think it's probably my favorite card I've made!!! I hope Emma and her DT like it, I know that there are going to be tons of Awesome entries which will make it very hard for her to make a decisions and mine most likely won't make the cut, but at least I can say I tried (thanks Glora!)
Sorry about the photos, not sure what happened :(
Stamps~MCT "Anyday Bingo and Crossword" (letters for "Hugs" and Paw Print for bakground)
"Build A Banner Kit" (Houndstooth background for star shaped die)
PKS "Happy-go-lucky Dog Face Assortment" the 1" size
Dies~MCT "Build A Banner Kit" (all dies for banner)
Cuttlebug (for all dies)
Cricut Cart~Paper Doll for Every Day (Gilby, cut @ 3" 3 times w/E-2)
Cricut Imagine (gray cardstock for Gilby-) *See note below*
Cardstock~Colorbok (White for Imagine)~AC Textured (Black & Red)
Ribbon~M.S. (sorry don't know the name)
Foam Tape*Since Gilby is mostly gray and white and I didn't have any gray cardstock, I looked up the RGB code on the web and found a gray I liked (R185/G185/B184), then used my Imagine to flood fill a white piece of cardstock with the gray, I love that about the Imagine!!!
I'm sorry this post has been so long, but I want everyone to know how I feel about Emma, her blog (MCT) and her stamps and dies!!!
Hope you enjoyed my card and wish me luck!!! :D
As always Gilby and I love comments...his tail just wags away when he sees me smile!!!
Thanks for stopping by!
