Rubbernecker New Release Preview Day One and Iris Show Winners

Good morning everyone....Rubbernecker Stamps will be releasing MORE new stamps on Tuesday 4/12/11.  To give you a PEEK of what’s to come, we are having TWO days of PREVIEWS!!  Welcome to DAY ONE!!  You will want to visit the Rubbernecker Blog for ALL of today’s participants and a list of all the prizes!! The Rubbernecker Blog has ALL the details for you!! 
My card features the Ralph Fishing Old People stamp....this reminds me of my DH.... Fishing is serious business at our house...LOL!!! Ralph was colored with copics and the sentiment says "He only fishes on days that end in Y". I finished it off with Cosmo Cricket Salt air dp, a little sewing, distressing, raffia, and a fishing basket button.

Guess who won Best of Show in the Artistic Design division of the Belton Iris Show..... Whoohoo!!!! I was sooo excited...I think everyone could tell this was my first show...LOL!!! The name of my flower arrangement is Asian Artistry....the little wood oriental doll is my prop along with the matt and silk background.
These are the best of show winners for the different color divisions....
My Chinook Arch won second place in the yellow iris division and
my Obi-Wan Kenobi won second place in the varied color division....Whoohoo again!!!!
This is a close up of the Chinook Arch and
a close up of Obi Wan Kenobi. Several of the winners are taking their irises to Austin today for the big iris show....Austin is about 5 times bigger than the Belton show...yikes!!! I might work myself up to that one is a couple of years!!!



Thanks for stopping by, enjoy all of the Rubbernecker previews and GOOD LUCK!!
