Guest Designer Saturday Faith Freeman
I want to introduce you to a very special friend - Faith Freeman and I'm thrilled to have her as my Guest Designer!
Thank you Lynne for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer on your blog! I sometimes feel like the "lone ranger" in the blogging world because I don't use Blogger and so I'm probably one of the blogosphere's best kept secrets...or not who knows. Anyway, I'm grateful for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer!
I've been telling everyone so much about me lately it's almost scary LOL. I recently was selected to join the Getting Cricky Design Team with Kristal Andrew and her AMAZING K Andrew Design Stamps and have a full bio posted on her DT Page at Getting Cricky if you'd like to read my full story. Then there's the About Me page on my blog too...but, just of those of you who don't feel up to the extra work it takes to click a link or two (lol), this is for you...
I am a single mom to four amazing kids, I've been scrapbooking for pretty much ever, and about 3 years ago now I started stamping and card making. Professionally I'm pursuing a digital design related degree, I'm a member of the Roberts Arts and Crafts Design Team, in addition to the Getting Cricky Design Team. I also enjoy altering pretty much anything, mixed media canvas pieces, vinyl projects, and well basically all things crafty EXCEPT fabric...it scares me. There...I think that about sums it up. Now for my project today I bring you this:
A card I made to thank the manager who interviewed me recently. We had a great interview, he was really fun and he thought the same of me as well. On the inside I just stamped something I like I just wanted to say thanks. The stamps aren't any name I can remember...just random stamps from my stash sorry. The card base is from the DCWV Rockstar Stack...this was new for me I don't usually use patterned paper as a card base but this seemed perfect. The background is pearlescent purple paper from a Colorbok stack I got at Wal Mart. The doll, his clothes and guitar were cut from the Dress Up Dolls and Pets SD Card from Craftwell USA (oh yeah that makes me odd in the blogosphere too...I prefer eCraft). I used Stayzon ink on the front and Memento ink on the inside some kind of burlap feeling "ribbon" for the guitar strap. Peachy Keen Wide Eyed Kids faces and my new favorite while gel pen for the eyes (and stitching) with some sharpies to fill in the eyelids and tongue. Oh yeah and I inked using Tim Holtz Distress inks...lots of them LOL. I also hand wrote a note inside thanking the manager I interviewed with. I hope he will like it and it will help serve to make a very lasting impression of me on him!
Lynne, prayers and love to you my friend and thank you again for this opportunity! Can't wait to do it again sometime!
Faith, your card is "rockin" and I absolutely love it!!!! The blog is always open for you to post anytime as my Guest Designer Faith! Prayers to you and your family also! Please don't forget to give Faith bloggie love!!!!
Hugs and Love
