Splitcoaststampers.com - the world's #1 papercrafting community
You're currently viewing Splitcoaststampers as a GUEST. We pride ourselves on being great hosts, but guests have limited access to some of our incredible artwork, our lively forums and other super cool features of the site! You can join our incredible papercrafting community at NO COST. So what are you waiting for?
And we're OFF to the races! Let's say “yo” to this Kentucky gal and invite her to the winner's circle to be crowned our Queen for this week. I'm a horse lover so I appreciate Queen Shelly's lovely avatar. Maybe she will explain it and her screen name “yo sam”.
Some ideas on how you might encourage and honour our fabulous Queen this week: Send her a Private Message, comment on the lovely cards in her gallery, post a message for her here on this thread, pick a card from her gallery to be inspired by and create a card for her. There are really “no rules”. You can play along with this challenge anytime. There is no deadline. Even if you don't know this week's Queen, come play along anyway. It's a great way to "get to know" each other!
I'm still in shock! I woke up and checked the challenge to see who I was going to get to case and it was ME! Wow! What a fantastic birthday present as today is also my birthday! Thank you so much, Trish!
My avatar is mine and my husband's horse Houston and my name is from my horse we used to have named Yosemite Sam. We had to sell him as my husband's health is not good.
Congratulations, Shelly!!! I have to get ready for work so I just got a quick look at some of your cards. I didn't get through the first page and already have two in mind. So many pretty cards to choose from. I'll be back this evening or tomorrow morning. Enjoy the spotlight.

Congratulations Shelly. Now I can tell everyone that my bff is a Queen. You are so deserving of this honor. I wish I could make beautiful cards like you but I will have to stick with Hallmark. I wish you the best birthday ever and I love you and don't know what I would ever do without you.
I was going to make another card (incorporating today's Free4All challenge); but, when I went into Shelly's gallery again, there were only three cards there. Anybody else having a gallery problem? I left a post in the Site Suggestions forum about this.
Congratulations Shelly! Being chosen QFTD is quite an honor, and you so deserve it! Thanks for telling us what your nick means! My DH and I used to have horses in our younger days, so I recognize your fondness for these majestic animals. I decided to make you a card with horses instead of doing a gallery CASE, so this one's just for you! Enjoy your reign!!

Congratulations, Queen Shelly, AND Happy Birthday!! Trish must have e.s.p. or something... Love your gallery! I chose this pretty card to case. Here's my take on it combining it with today's F4A challenge Over the Moon.
I was amazed at the number of your cards which are honoring others. I take my hat off to you!
