It's a triple F day!!

Get your minds out of the gutter...I'm talking Friday Fabulous Feature sillies!!! I saw this crafters' work over at the Platinum Scraps blog,  and although I can't make a card to save my life, (be quiet, Natalie) I do love looking and admiring the work of those that can....
I mean, for real, feast your eyes on this beauty:
 gorgeous right??
  and how about THIS:
I love the fact that he says that he has a particular style (shabby), but I just see fabulosity whether it is shabby chic, eclectic, romantic...he has all kinds of style if you ask me...I like that he thinks that you aren't limited to red & pink for Valentines Day (yes, I went WWAAYYY back in his blog posts) and I adore his mini treat boxes! He can do all the things I wish I could do like stamping, painting and embossing!  So without further ado, I give mad props on this sweet Friday the 13th (MY BIRTHDAY) by kicking it off & introducing you to Terrance, aka Trell who you may know from My Creative Time or, from his personal blog, Polka Dots, Paint & Cake Batter!!! 

Terrance allowed the Queen to ask nosy questions interview him for the blog!   He's been crafting since 2010...no typos..only 2010!  He was working at JoAnn's, learned to use a Cricut and the rest was "his-story" LOL...He's obviously been hiding his talent.  Can you imagine what would happen if he scrapped layouts??? (he doesn't) but OMG, he'd surely be published !
Q:  What inspires you to create? Do you work with others or alone?" 
 A:   I am a big believer in inspiration presenting itself in many forms. I love color, it can be a great starting point for a project. Like man others. I love pattern. I think that is the reason why we hoard some of our favorite papers. Florals are near and dear to my heart. And, I'm a sucker for damask.

Now, when I create for My Creative Time, I let the stamps be my inspiration. If one looks around my blog for a while, I think they'll find that I have a bit of a vintage/shabby style of personal cardmaking. However, I try to go outside of my box and do my best to make the stamps shine when I design with Emma's stamps.  
I pretty much work solo, but I get great feedback from close friends.


Q:   What are your 3 favorite crafting supplies?
A:    Since I started, I've evolved into a stamper mainly, so I gotta have my stamps, ink, and good cardstock. But it's very seldom that I make a card without the use of my dies and Cuttlebug. Also, anyone that knows me knows that I love ribbon and tying bows. It's one of the things I get the most comments on. I'm admittedly addicted to ribbon - preferably grosgrain or saddle stitch!

I won't reveal much more, go hang out at his blog and at My Creative Time...tell em Queen Kat sentchya and leave him some royal L-O-V-E  :):):) 
 
Thank you Terrance for being part of my ROYAL celebration; what better thing to do on my birthday than to share gifts with friends ???
