Happy News!

Good Morning!  It's a great morning, actually!  I have the best news and I can still hardly believe it!!  I've been asked to join an amazing design team!  And, not just any design team- this one is one of my favorites- a company that I do plenty of buying from already and love!


Yes!  Can you believe it? I am going to be a member of the Teresa Collins design team!!!  I am a happy girl!  This is something that I never dreamed would happen so it was quite a shock when Teresa herself messaged  me to ask if I'd like to join!  I'm so lucky to have met her last month at the retreat!!

I will mainly be making cards for them so I thought I'd share a couple with you today in honor of my big announcement:


I paired the little heart stamp from the She Said stamp set with the pretty diecuts and paper from the Memories line.  I started by stamping the hearts with the pretty gold Delacato ink.  Next, I splattered a little Gold Lame' Color Shine (which matches perfectly) in the same areas as the hearts. I started to build my focal point next with the pretty floral strip and gold baker's twine.  I added the die cut doily and button next, accenting it with an epoxy dot.  To finish it off, I added my sentiment on a hand cut banner.



See the shine!  I am loving gold at the moment!  I even used it on this next card as well:


As you can see, I've continued with the same color pallet, this time throwing in a little yellow patterned paper from the She Said 6x6 pad.  I splattered the gold all over my pool base and then added the notebook paper card for my focal point base.  Doesn't that flower stamp up pretty?  I stamped it with my favorite Calypso Coral ink and added some more Gold Lame' Color Shine to the center.


I've accented the flower with more of those pretty turquoise epoxy dots!  I added the patterned strips at a slight angle for interest and so you could see more of the fleur de lis.  I finished it off with a fun sentiment stamped in black.

Thank you so much for celebrating with me today!  I am so excited and honored for the opportunity to work with such fabulous designers and for such a great company! If you'd like to read the announcement, Teresa is sharing it on her blog today!  I'm still having a hard time believing that it's all for real!  Hee!
