I hope by now you've been to the
fun & fab site for the brand new

We have been revealing our design team
over the course of the last 10 days and
they are one amazing group of designers!

We have ONE MORE GIRL FRIDAY to reveal
and then we're in the home stretch to....

So please visit, mark your calendar and plan to play!!!!

Now for something creative....

I usually shy away from color challenges that ask for more
than three colors, so imagine my surprise when I
decided to try FIVE!!!

I love the girls over at DeNami Design
and I truly love this color combo!

I use the Solid Decorative Crest so often.
It's a great accent stamp for backgrounds, but what
a statement it makes as the focal point!
It's stamped in beautiful 'French Roast' by
A Muse Studio....yummy & lovely!
One of my fave Martha border punches coupled with one
of my fave Fiskars punches creates the lacey layers.

The photo makes it hard to tell, but the tiny little rhinestones
are shaped like hearts.  Just the right touch!

I will be back later with a new color challenge
We have a TERRIFIC SPONSOR this coming
week...well, all our sponsors are great, but you
know what I mean!!

Don't forget...
