OMG - Can You Say Papertrey Honorable Mention???

I was having a really bad morning, got very little sleep last night, was running late for my MOPS meeting, DD wouldn't put her shoes on, then she spilled my coffee on the floor (guess it was better than spilling it on herself), and it was snowing outside (OK - we liked that part, but it never sticks around here so not much to be excited about). At MOPS my day was looking brighter - we talked about food co-ops, which some friends and I are seriously considering starting. I was excited about that...

Until...

I got home, and my day got even better!

There was a message from a friend when I got home saying that she sent me some info via email, so while I was making lunch for the kids I fired up the computer. Opened my email and almost fell to the floor - before I could finish the email I was on the phone with my mom (the one person who truly can understand why this was so great!). I got an Honorable Mention on Nichole Heady's blog for PTI's Guest Star Stamper! YIPPEE! I am on CLOUD 9! This is so totally one of my goals for 2008 and here I am - Yeah!

To some this may not be such a big deal; for me this is HUGE! If you haven't already, check out her post here and if you read this before the deadline - VOTE! For me of course - he-he! No seriously, there are some really awesome projects on there. I saw Barb Schram's project on SCS last week, and remember thinking how awesome that key was!

Here is the card I submitted:

Super simple using PTI's new set Sweet Love. The base is obviously Kraft, the Swirl is Autumn Leaves Swirls I think. Both the swirl and the sentiment were stamped with Dew Drops Jumbo Java. I stamped the hearts with Dew Drops Pearlescent Poppy on Vanilla cardstock. I cut them out, used my eyelet setter to make the wholes in the card (since my 1/8" punch didn't reach), tied some SU! hemp twine through them, popped them up on dimensionals and wallah! I used a corner rounder on the two edges to keep the curvy lines of the heart soft. Simple and versatile! You can use it for a man or a woman!

I am soooooooo excited! You know the saying "it's just nice to be nominated"? In this case it truly is! I don't expect to win, but man this is waaaaaaaay cool!

Thanks for visiting!

ETA: The Swirl is actually from Technique Tuesday's set Whirlygigs. Sorry about the mix-up...
