Wow! So Many CARDS in My Scrappy Life

I can't believe it has been so long since I updated this blog! I know that last SPRING, as in two seasons ago, I promised to start updating........hmmmmm. Well, obviously that did not pan out. This will. You have to take my word for it! Last time I was in a rush to say HB to my dear friend, Helen. I managed to tell you how excited I was that I had made the DT for Memories From The Attic! Well, since then, Jeri had another DT call and I made Card DT Coordinator! Woooohoooo

Talk about excited. I was doing cardwheels (ok - in my head anyway) cause I was so excited and so honored. We have such a great site there and the whole DT is wonderful. Jaime, who I was on the DT with previously, became the Scrappy DT Coordinator! She is so sweet and so talented, as all our DT girlies are, and Jeri is a dream to design for. She is so patient and encouraging! Can you tell I am happy with my DT position at the Attic?! So I am making it in the scrappy world! Well, at least to some degree, don't ya think? : )
I have so many things I want to share with you, I don't know where to start!

Maybe I'll start with some cards! Do I even have any cards on my slideshow? I don't think so, and I'll have to fix that. So the card up top is just a Halloween card I made, with a SLIGHTLY altered feel to it. Oh yes, oh yes, how can I forget? I have an ETSY site now that has been slow in getting up and going, but it is going. And I am selling some cards on that site. A big part of it will be with my friend -like a brother! - Sam. He is the real ARTIST here, as in he can draw beautifully, and I can't draw a straight line! Our ETSY site is called Dreamers Boutique. Go have a look. Right now I have a few Halloween cards on there that I made from the MFTA October Card Kit, which is full of cute spooky card goodies. You can have a look at the Scrappy Kit for October at the same link, too. Wow! Fabulous as usual! So here are the cards from the kit that are on ETSY.

Don't you just love the black cats with their red eyes? (Don't tell, but one DT member had to change the eyes cause they were so spooky! lol) The fence, btw, was cut from my Sizzix. And what about that cute skull with the bow? I have to admit that I am not too fond of the new skull craze, but what can you say about a skull with a bow? CUTE!

There is so much more to share! I am just beginning. I need to tell you how I met Libby (a really sweet Rusty Pickle chef) in Chattanooga and helped her set up for the convention there. I have pics to prove it! I also want to show you the beautiful ATC swaps we are doing at MFTA. I want you to get really excited about it, because I am thinking of doing a swap here, as well.

I also have a CONTEST on my mind to really get my blog rolling, but more about that later! I have to get to the Attic and do my thing! Stay tuned, though. Hope this can be a scrappy blog you will want to come back to - not just to read, but to PLAY!
