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!
