TSG Announcements

So remember when I asked for all of those questions about the There She Goes design Team? Well, the dt gals all picked their favorite questions and we are each taking the time to answer them!

1. What do you typically start a project with? What's picked first: stamps, embellishments, DP, colors.....?

I typically start my project with the stamp set that I want to use. I will then reach for a piece of designer paper that I feel fits that image well and pull my colors from it!

2. Do you give away your cards, sell them, send them or hoard them? Or all of the above??

Ok! I admit it...I am a horder! Haha! I am actually doing much better about giving them out though. Since I have this card ministry starting I am giving them out much more often! :)

3. If you could design your own stamp or stamp set, what would it be?"

Definately a God based set! I love whimsical images (solid especially) that have Bible verses to accompany them.

4. Where do you get your inspiration?

My biggest inspiration originally came from other bloggers/stampers but I am finally discovering what my own style is and am creating from that! I also love to use sketch challenges (which I am sure you have noticed) to get me started.

5. How do you balance your stamping time with your personal time/work/kids/etc.?

I devote a lot of my Friday's to stamping (since we don't have school on Fridays). I don't actually find a lot of time to stamp after work because of commitments to our youth group and I want to spend my evenings with my wonderful hubby!

6. What is your favorite embellishment?

RIBBON! :D I am also a huge fan of pearls, brads, and dew drops as well!

7. What is something that not a lot of people know about you?

Hmm...this one is tough. I guess for those of you who may have never met me or do not know me personally, you may not realize is that I tend to be EXTREMELY shy! :)

8. On average how long does it take to create one of these fabulous cards we see each week??

Actually, I have a little OCD problem and want my cards to always look perfect so it usually takes me 30 min-2 hours! It depends a lot on how complicated the image is and if I am submitting the card for a contest.

9. What is your favorite coloring medium?

Well, I go back and forth between two. I really love watercoloring with my blender pens but I also enjoy using my Prismacolor/Crayola colored pencils!

10. What time of day do you prefer to do your creating?

If it's Friday then I usually love to make a card in the afternoon, if it's a weekday then obviously I love to create at night...usually late!

Well, I hope you learned a lot about me through this fun survey!

Before I go I want you to make sure you check out the rest of the girls' answers so that you can get to know them as well! I also want to let you know that this will be my last month with There She Goes. It has been one terrific experience and I have absolutely loved working with these fabulous women! Jessica has so much talent and I will continue to use her stamps! I would love to welcome the new faces to the dt though! Check out Jessica's blog to see her announcement as well as the details on this month's challenge which is called "Bling It Out!" You also won't want to miss the sneak peeks for this month! They start tomorrow!

I love to create late at night too...sometimes VERY late!

It would be fun to have a scriptural yet whimsical set...have you talked to Jessica about that? ;-)
