An Embarrassment of Riches



I found out in the wee hours this morning that I'm today's Featured Stamper on SCS. I was already on a high this week from lots of other good news, so my first feeling was actually one of embarrassment at my good fortune. I'm also not comfortable being in the spotlight, so I'd like to express my most heartfelt thanks for all the words of encouragement and just leave it at that. I am truly humbled and grateful.

[Note: For anyone not familiar with the Featured Stamper challenge, each Sunday the challenge host selects an SCS member's gallery to feature. Anyone wanting to play chooses a card from the featured stamper's gallery to CASE (copy), changes at least two things from the original, and then identifies those changes when they post.]

I hope to post an Easter card later today if I have time to finish it, but for now, I couldn't wait to upload another card using the Light of the World set from Our Daily Bread Designs. I used this past week's SCS sketch challenge to make this and I really like how it turned out. I used a combination of Stampin' Up's Outlaw designer papers, which might seem like an odd choice for a religious card, but I'm hoping that the subtle stars on the dark brown piece conjure up a nautical feel and not a sheriff's department ;)

Remember, I'm giving away one of these stamp sets courtesy of Kelley Holland, owner of Our Daily Bread Designs!! But time is running out. Go to this post to enter. Deadline is tomorrow, 9 am.

Here's a look at the full set:



Last, if you're still with me, and in case I don't get back later with the Easter card ... Happy Easter to all!

You should not feel embarrassed for having a great week and for being picked the FS for today. You totally deserve it. You are an amazing artist! Congratulations! I'm having a hard time deciding what great card to CASE!
Happy Easter!

It's about time! Your work is fabulous and now more people will become familiar with it and you!! That's part of the great thing about sharing it. You should not feel embarrassed at all. I am so thankful for being able to see your artwork, so thank YOU!

btw, this is a great card too. Love the colours and those jumbo eyelets really set off that panel perfectly.

Congrats on being the featured stamper! Your work is awesome, so I understand why they picked you!

This card is so lovely! I never know what to do with the striped designer paper because it always seems so bold to me. I like how you used it but layered it so it didn't overtake the rest of the card.

This card is just stunning. I love the hardware, and think the cowboy paper worked perfectly with the nautical theme. Wish I had time to ink up this fabulous set. It's just sitting sadly unopened on my desk.
