Meet the Team Blog Hop @ FTHS

Welcome to the October blog hop at From The Heart Stamps! 
 
We have a Meet the Design Team theme this month.
 
We have added some new talent to our design team line up! And here is your chance to get to know them.
 
Each designer is showcasing a project and telling us a little bit about themselves. As you hop along, please leave a comment on each blog. One random commenter will be selected on each blog to win an image of choice from the FTHS store. And additionally, we will have a game with some prizes on the FTHS blog!
 
If you have arrived from Lyn, you are in the right place, if not just start on the From the Heart Stamps blog, so you don’t miss anything.
  
 Here is my creation!
 
Image: Spectacular Birdbrain (Exclusive fundraiser image)
Paper: Simple Stories Vintage Bliss
Coloring Medium: Distress Ink ~ Old Paper
Other Supplies: Smooch Glitz ~ Frost, Doodlebug dots, Glossy Accents, Lawn Fawn "A Birdie Told Me" die, Mama Elephant Tags a Lot die
 
I also used the current sketch challenge and twist as well.
  
It's hard to tell from the 1st pic, but I printed the image twice and cut out just the glasses. Then 'covered' the lens w/the Smooch Glitz, and added Glossy Accents to the eyes. Then used pop dots to give the image some depth.



So ~ here is a little bit about me
 
How long have you been on the From the Heart Stamps design team?
4 1/2 years~Since April 2011
 
What is something about me that none of the other team members know?
I won 2 titles @ the 2001 Wisconsin Women’s 500 Bowling Tournament – Division 2 Single with a score of 700, and All Events with a score of 1327
 
My favorite category of images in the FTHS store?
Birdbrains and snowmen
 
The emoji I use most often? :)
 

Now head over to one of our newest team members Ruth

and see what she has created.
 
Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday October 5th at 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday October 7th.
