My First Card As A DT!!

 Here is my first card as a DT member for Stamping Dragon Designs. For those of you who are unsure of what that means let me take a moment to explain at least in part. DT stand for Design Team. That means I will use products from SDD (and other companies that sponsor the challenges) to make cards for the SDD Challenge Blog. The cards that I make are to help inspire...in theory at least...hehe...others to join in the challenge and win prizes. 2012 Challenge 1 is Frames. If you choose to accept this challenge you have 14 days to do so make the prettiest cards ever and win yourself some really awesome images! YEAH!
 So last time you got to meet my new friend, Jiggy (Framed)...well today I am very excited to introduce two more new dragon friends...Rupert (Framed) and Penny (Framed). Aren't they just the sweetest? It was fun getting to "know" them this week. I am looking forward to becoming very acquainted with them and all their other friends at SDD. Oh, and the other DTs too of course...hehe! If you hurry over to the Stamping Dragon Designs store now they are having a sale...now through January 10 the whole store is 40% off! WOOHOO! I love a sale! Just ask my poor husband...haha!
Now on to the particulars...this was one of those stops and starts cards. I had the idea of what I wanted to do for this challenge as soon as I saw the images. It was going to be so easy...yeah right! HAHA! When I started putting my idea in motion...well, let's just say it did not go as planned. But, I am very happy with how this turned out...it's better then what I pictured in my wee little head. But getting it there was a challenge...hehe. 
 Anyway...Due to the length of this post already I am not going to list the other products I used this time. If you want the list leave me a message and I will send it to you. Fair enough? Until next time...take care.

Hi Ruth! I just LOVE your write up! It made me feel so enthusiastic about us being on the team. I forgot to be excited...I was just being nervous. Thanks for that my friend! I love that you described to people what a DT is. My oh my we take things for granted in blogland. Good work Ruth!!!! And I LOVE your card. These two gaffers sound like your bestest(s) and that is full of sweetness - it shows in how you made your card. Well, in case "I" go on to long, I'm glad to be working with you. Your card is Uber great! Love and a Hug, Samara
