I'm so excited!!! The secret is out - and I can share the news! Several weeks ago, one of my FAVORITE companies in the world - Peachy Keen Stamps - put out a call for guest designers. I really didn't think I stood a chance, but figured it was worth a try! Much too my surprise, I was selected to join on as a guest designer for 2011!!! I am very honored - and excited to join all the other wonderful talent out there! The full list is HERE - so feel free to go check out all the other lucky guest designers!!!
So...for anyone who might be looking at my blog for the first time, here is a LINK to my very first post that explains why I set this blog up, and what I make all of my cards. In short, it became a project to build houses for widows and orphans in Burundi - and what a journey it has been! I have been so blessed to see how something that started out so small has continued to grow and help others!
And since I just finished this project for a color challenge on My Pink Stampers blog, and it just so happens to use a Peachy Keen stamp...I thought I would share this tonight as well! The challenge was to use brown, blue, and green (and I had to use a "little" yellow!). I used the Smiley Cards cartridge, added a face from Peachy Keen's Princess Face Assortment. The candle flames got a dose of Stickles, and the frosting was covered with Glossy Accents. The sentiment is from a Pink by Design stamp set that I just got, and some buttons, string, and doodling finished it all off.
