A few challenges and some EXCITING news!!

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a fantastic start to your week! I'm still plugging away at the "thank you" notes on my list. Here's the one I came up with today. I colored this adorable image for Sugar Nellie that my friend Denise was kind enough to share with me!! Thanks Denise!!! The sketch is from Friday's Sketchers, I thought it worked perfectly with this rather large image. I used celery, regal rose and bashful blue to fit in with the Our Creative corner AND Lili of the valley challenges! You have to love when that happens!! I used this super cute and springy designer paper from TPC Studios along with some new primas from the convention(did I mention we hit the jackpot there??) to meet the spring flowers challenge over on Cute Daisy May.

Now for the news.........last week I took a chance and it paid off!!! I decided to enter for a DT spot for a new challenge blog...and I made it. This isn't just any challenge blog though, it's a stamping AND scrapping challenge blog.....Scrap and Stamp Saturday! I love scrapping but don't get to it often enough so this will be a great chance for me to get back into it and to learn some techniques from the amazingly talented scrappers on the team with me!! Check out my sidebar for the links to all theses ladies! Our first challenge will take place on June 6th!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
