All Moved and QUEEN for a day!

It has been an exhausting week but----We made it. We are now in our new house (surrounded by boxes!) I promised my dh that I would unpack my stamping stuff last (what was I thinking???) so I don't have a new card to show you but I thought I would share one I made before I was blogging!

It is a simple card--made by brayering the background and sponging the edges of the mustard yellow piece. The rooster is stamped and cut out and popped up to create some dimension.

I used my Stampin' Up! word window punch to create the easel opening at the top of the card. The scrolling punched corners finish off the card.

Materials used: Stamps-rooster (Stampendous); Carte Postale (Stampin' Up!); Paper-black, white; Copic markers; Ink- mustard, black, close to cocoa (SU!); corners scroll punch (SU!); brayer; word window punch (SU!); dimensionals (SU!).

Thanks for hanging in there with me! I, hopefully, will get my craft room up and running soon!

Fun News: I received a call from PaperCrafts Magazine last night letting me know that I was a winner in the Stamping Royalty Contest! Woohoo!!! My response to the person who called was: "Are You Kidding Me???" lol!

In addition to winning $200 worth of fun stamping stuff, my card will appear in the Nov/Dec issue of PaperCrafts! How very exciting!

My husbands response when I told him: "Of course you are royalty, your last name is KING!"

So I let him know that now I am upgrading to QUEEN status!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh -- I get to be the first to congratulate you on: (1) your move (guess you'll be unpacking everything in a huge hurry so you can get to your stamping supplies! lol), and (2) for being PaperCrafts' new Royalty winner! Can't wait to see that issue! Way to go, Cammie!

Love your cute little rooster card too. Very pretty (love those rich colors!).
