Queens for the Day

Here are a couple cards I made in honor of terrific stampers chosen as Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers.

Linda, aka Morningsun47, was chosen last week.  Linda is such a sweetheart and has a fabulous gallery! You should check it out, if you haven't already.  I fell in love with Linda's beautiful Vintage Vogue card.

And here's the one I made in her honor:

Hilda, aka Broom, has been chosen as Queen this week. I've had the good fortune to meet Hilda when I traveled to our Upper Peninsula for a Michigan stamping event last year. She is very sweet and a talented stamper to boot! She also is gifted with the ability to write amazing poems that she mostly shares with us in the Teapot Tuesday challenges.

I love, love, LOVE this darling CornFlower card she made with candy corn stickers and ribbon.

Here's my version as I was inspired by hers:

I immediately thought of my cute candy corn stamps by Rubbernecker. I cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. Instead of ribbon, I used this checkered dp for my stem and leaves.

HUGE CONGRATS to both of these wonderful ladies!
