A VERY Exciting Day Today!

Sorry, this is going to be a long post today, I have lots and lots of exciting things to share!

First is my card for the Crazy4Cocoa Challenge- this week we were to use our favorite "cocoa" well, I don't have a favorite I love them all so I decided to use my first "cocoa"! You can find "cocoa" and now "cookie" at Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. You must use "cocoa or cookie" in our challenges. I made this card for the challenge at Friends of Speedy the Cat challenge and The Paper Sundaes both wanted Valentine Cards.

I am so excited to announce that I have been asked to be part of the
Heart Song Designs design team. Leah who used to illustrate images for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps has decided to go out on her own and she has opened her own shop. All proceeds will got to help fund bringing her adopted son home from Ethiopia. Make sure you stop by and check out all the wonderful digi stamps in her shop and also the inspiration blog to help you get your mojo going. I used "Precious Baby" for my first card, I love this image and it is perfect for a boy or a girl. Here are the members of the design team

Leah (owner) - Paper

Shelly - Shell's Space

Next, I have more EXCITING NEWS! I have been asked to be a guest designer for Feb. and March for Our Craft Lounge, one of my favorite stamp companies!! I have been busy at work and have quite a few cards already to show you this month. This first card is using the set "Lava You"- reminds me of when my kids had lava lamps. This is a joyfold card- you can see the inside in the photo below.

Here is the inside of my Lava You card.

Last but not least I was asked to be guest designer for One Crazy Stamper for the month of Feb. One Crazy Stamper is an online store out of Canada. I decided to use this cute image from Stampavie, you can find it here. I made this card with Mother's Day in mind. One Crazy Stamper also has a monthly challenge and can you guess this month's theme? hmmmmmmmmmmm.... It's PINK! You can read all about the challenge here! I will have 2 more cards to share with you in a couple of days-
Thanks for sticking with me, I know that was a long post.
