TaDa Creative Studios: Hey Chick!

Happy Friday!! Today is my turn on TaDa Creative Studios FaceBook. I decided that I wanted to do a fancy shaped card with a western twist to it = PHEW, that's mouthful! LOL!!

Hey, Chick by Margie Higuchi
Supplies - Cardstock: American Craft; Patterned Paper: TaDa Creative Studios (Yee Haw Collection); Brad: KI Memories; Ink Mist: Lindy's Stamp Gang (Starbursts Ink Spray Tiffany's Blue); Ribbon: Creative Impression; Button: Maya Road; Dies: Spellbinders™ Paper Arts (S5-090 Romantic Rectangles; S5-073 Orchard Harvest Tags and Accents, S5-030 Fancy Tags Two and S5-050 Rose Creations) and Adhesives: ScraPerfect (The Best Glue Ever) and SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L (3D Foam Squares)

So what do you think? I have to admit it's different but kind of like it. LOL! The patterned paper I used (Yee Haw Snippets & Clippets' B side) for the flower I think makes it work (the western theme). I misted it to add a little bling - love this Lindy's Stamp Starbursts Ink Spray Tiffany's Blue!!! I ordered mine from Scrap-Mart.com and it's at a great price :)

Other News:

I submitted a card for a call on Scrap & Stamp Arts Magazine but wasn't sure if it was even accepted or not, until this came in the mail a couple of days ago!


So I flipped through the pages and found this!


What a wonderful surprise! LOVE how I can combine two of my favorite things - TaDa Creative Studios papers (Goody Two Shoes Collection - Straight Laced) and Spellbinders die templates (in this case, Spellbinders Shapeabilities® Cut Fold Tuck die S5-114 Spectacular Spin). SO excited and thankful for published opportunity!

OK...enough tooting! Off to create :0)
Thanks for stopping by!!
