Congratulations to ****** ME *******

Please excuse me while the dust settles from my little happy dance....... What's all the fuss you wanna know? I, Me, Moi have been selected to be April's Guest Designer for Susana's Custom Art and Card Designs. I will be the Guest Designer for the Karen Lockhart line!!!!!!!!!!!

I am posting this super late, well maybe it is considered early (12:45 am) because I have been trying to narrow down my order with SCACD. Besides receiving free Lockhart stamps, I also received a 10% discount that I quickly used for some amazing new products that I have been dying to own. Flower Soft, Smooches, Baubles, Diamond Glaze, Shimmerz and Laura Ashley DP are all the RAGE right now and they are all on there way to me.

Now don't get me wrong, I love my
Shirley's 2 Girls Design Team and will not be leaving them. I am just adding to my Creative Resume'...............

So with all this excitement I should get to the CARDS..... Last week I mentioned Festa Della Donna, the celebration of women. During our annual "Girls Only, Night Out", we had a gift exchange. Doing what I do best, I created a boxed set of cards. To me they seem rather simple, however, so many times I give boxed sets and I hear later that the recipient can't bear to send them out!!!! O the shame ---- ok so I know exactly how the hourding thing works, therefore, I created these in the hopes that they would actually be utilized.

I used my new circle Nestabilities that were a gift from my good friend Karolyn (she is also on the S2G DT and SCACD DT). Thank you
Karolyn ;o) The stamps are from PTI's Stationery Set. Can you see on the scalloped edge that I stamped a little matching scroll onto each scallop? Presentation is everything and keeping with the simple elegant look, I simply sandwiched the flap of the envelope into an embossing folder and ran it through the Cuttlebug. For packaging, I placed everything into a clear box, tied it with a wide ribbon and created a simple little tag.

The entire gift took me about an hour. Now let's hope that they get used to brighten someones day with a simple, elegant act of gratitude............................

Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my happy moment with you. Take a moment to check out
