Queen of My Craft Room DT

Well this post is a little happy & a little sad, crafting sad, not life sad! A couple of months ago I tried out for another DT with Queen of My Craftroom & found out about a month later that I had made the team!! Yipee!! Now for the "sad" part...over the weekend the blog  owner decided to pull the plug on the DT due to personal reasons! Boo :( Of course I TOTALLY understand, but Boo!! So here is the 1st & the last post from Queen of My Craftroom DT!!

Our assignment was to make a project to commemorate Sept 11th. If you saw my post yesterday I did a "Remembering 9-11" post and now here are my cards I did for the DT
This was a harder assignment than I thought it would be! I didn't want to add too much...wanted to keep it simple, but wanted to make my point! But not have it be too "gaudy"!! Anyway, I cut the cityscape from Plantin Schoolbook ( I wouldn't have even guessed that this image was on there but I did a search on my Gypsy!!) Then I had some scraps of paper with the stars & added some ribbon that I got from a super great friend! :) THEN I had to come up with a sentiment!! Geez Louise!! Another hard part! I was going to print something from the computer but then started looking through my stamps & found this one!! Perfect!!

Now this next one, I had made this base a while back when I made all the comp books for the History teachers. I saw these 2 pieces laying there & thought "Oh cute card!!" Added some lace to it also...And have had this base sitting there for almost a month now! SO when the assignment came up, I thought Oh cool I have this ready!! But it just didn't fit, this wasn't about thanking someone for their service, it was about remembering those that lost their lives!

But now I think it could be sent to a serviceman oversees who are there fighting to keep us safe! SO it does tie into the whole 9-11 theme!
So now my reign as a Queen of My Craftroom DT member has screeched to a halt!! BUT the silver lining in the of the other DT members has decided to start her own DT & has asked some of us to join her new team!! Which is awesome because "we" can be a part of her very 1st DT! Now THAT can be exciting!! I wish her all the luck in making this new venture work & hope that I can a part of her DT for a long time! :) I will share more details about the new DT as they become available!

Come on back tomorrow for a post from My Cricut Craft Room's DT Card Creating Tuesday!! I will have a card on there from Paper Doll Dress up!!

Until next time...
