Design Team News to Share & More!

Talk about some FanTABulous news!

I received an email last Monday with an
invitation to join the new Design Team for

I have been playing with their  
wonderful baker's twine 
over the past month or so and
am in love with the colors and quality.
I am looking forward to working with a variety
of crafters including home decorators, party planners,
sewers and of course, paper crafters.
So stay tuned...we're going to have fun together!

I have been trying for a few weeks now to play
in a new challenge that has been started by my
friend Mona...but CrAzY life keeps gettin' in the way.
Well...not this week!  Well...barely...

Mona uses the beautiful color stories from
everyone's favorite 'A Creative Mint' and
this is a lovely combo indeed.

I have been making cards all week long for a
special project that I am raising money for and
this little collection is part of my week.
Very simply....K&Company paper,
Hero Arts greetings and the
small Spellbinders scalloped die.
A few simple embellishment details
are the finishing touches.

Here is a close up of two of the cards.

So that's it for today....sorry to be brief but I promise
next week will be fun.

This coming week is
'Player Appreciation Week'
in The Play Date Cafe.

We will have
Three Brand New Sponsors
to share with you.  It's going to be a lot of fun!!!
