Good Sunday morning! I have been keeping a little secret. I am thrilled to tell you that Lauren at My Time Made Easy has asked me to be on her design team!!!! I have long admired Lauren and her talent. I was so excited when I was contacted and asked to join her fantastic team. I will be starting in May so I can finish up some things. She has added Dawn Easton, Stephanie Kraft and Geny Cassady as well! You can check out the entire team here<---- Seriously could there be any more talented women that I could work with? If you haven't seen the fantastic templates, stamps and yummy digital papers at Lauren's store you have to go check them out. I am so thrilled to be able to play with her stuff. These wonderful templates are so versatile and you will love what you can do with them. If it doesn't get any better, tomorrow they are doing some new sneak peeks at the April release. I can't wait to see what is in store for us.

There is a giveaway over at Lauren's blog for a free stamp set of your choice from MTME. Head over there and leave a comment. That's not all though.

Being on two design teams this year has been a dream come true for me. I have noticed that my stash of cards is piling up though. I know alot of my friends in the stamping world have Etsy shops and sell some of their excess creations. If and that is a big if, I were to start and Etsy shop, would any of you be willing to purchase my creations? I am just wondering if anyone would really want them. Haa haa. I am not looking to copy others, just looking at a way to share some of my stuff with people who might appreciate them. Your imput would be greatly appreciated. Now I can't just put up a post and not post something pretty, so I am going to share one of my Spellbinders creations from this past release of new dies. This card was made for CHA and was displayed there. I hope you like it. I picked up this fish die template and was trying to think outside of the box with it. I saw strawberries. Yummy. It is one of my favorites. :) I need to get ready for church, so I will stop by tomorrow and put up the details for you. Have a great day and enjoy the possibilities.
You can find the recipe here at the Spellbinders website. For some reason it is not letting me copy and paste. Grrrr
