Faux Wood Floors and Some Exciting News...

Happy Christmas Eve!! So are you all ready for Santa to come? I think we are - we have our Christmas Eve traditions to do - baking cookies for Santa, spreading reindeer food, etc. - those sorts of things. All my presents are wrapped though - I just gotta figure out how to get my 6 year old and 3 year old to bed tonight - they are CRAZY today - LOL!!! Anywho - I got some FUN stuff to share with you today - I did my first tutorial over on the SCS MFT forum for today's What's Up Wednesday? activities - see that wood floor on my card here?? Well - I've got a tutorial up over on the MFT forum showing how to do them - you can view it here. It was a lot of fun to do - I hope you all enjoy it!! Oh - and see that cool Houndstooth paper I used on my card? I had been searching for Houndstooth paper EVERYWHERE - I love the classy look of Houndstooth and thought it would be cool to do some paper piecing with - well - it turns out that Kim has some beautiful Houndstooth Digital Papers for sale on her site - www.mftstamps.com!! And let me tell you - it's awesome! Very easy to download and print off - and it doesn't take that much printer ink at all! You don't have to worry about using up your pretty papers with it either - if you want more - all you gotta do is print more off - how cool is that!?

While I am on my MFT kick today - I've got some REALLY REALLY REALLY exciting news to share with you - as most of you know - I have been a guest designer for MFT for this past month - well - right before the December release - I had e-mailed Kim with a couple of questions about the release and she e-mails me back asking for my phone number - hee hee...I seriously thought I was in trouble - LMBO!! Later that day - I got a call from the fabulous Jody Morrow (who really got the ball rolling on my whole MFT journey) who invited me to be a permanent part of the MFT Design Team!! OMG - I was SPEECHLESS (which very rarely happens - LOL) - and once I got my voice back - I immediately said "yes"!!!! Kim called me later on to fill me in on all the deets and it was SO awesome to get to talk to too stamping rock stars in one day!! I am just beyond honored and thrilled to be joining a team of such extraordinarily talented stampers and hope to bring you guys lots more MFT eye candy to view here on my blog. Thanks to Kim for this wonderful opportunity and to Jody for the very special invite ;)!! Whew - can you tell I've been excited? Hee hee...so anywho - thanks for letting me share my news with you all - I hope everyone has a WONDERFUL holiday tomorrow and if you are travelling - please be safe - I know there are some dice-y weather situations around the country right now. Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Congratulations! I'm so excited for you - you definitely deserve it. On the other hand, however, I just know this will be expensive for me b/c I'll just HAVE to get more MFT stamps when I see your amazing examples.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas - great photo of the boys, BTW.
