Hello and happy morning to ya! It's certainly a happy morning for me, because I officially get to make the announcement that I have been asked to be a member of the design team for Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps!!!!!!! I am still in somewhat of a state of shock, but it's finally starting to sink in. When I received a phone call last week from a number I didn't recognize, I didn't think much about it, because I was expecting my aunt to call, and I can never remember her cell number. When the sweet voice of the caller stated that her name was Korin Sutherland, all I could think was I KNOW who this is...I just hope she's calling for the reason I think she's calling!! Sure enough, it was the call I was hoping for!! There haven't been many things in my life that have rendered me speechless, but speechless I was!! I've been running a gamut of emotions all weekend. From excitement to wondering if I can really live up to the amazing talent of other Sweet 'n Sassy design team members whose blogs I have been following for quite some time. It's been a lot for me to take in. I am thrilled, excited, and oh, so very grateful for this opportunity. I keep thinking what a blessing this is, and how thankful I am to God for leading me in this direction!! I am sincerely looking forward to working with and getting to know the rest of the Sweet 'n Sassy team. I know that I will develop very special and lasting friendships within this group, and that has to be the most wonderful blessing of all!
So on to this cute as a bug creation! I couldn't make this announcement without showcasing a card made with Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps. This is the Gone Buggy digi, which is one of their many digital stamps. I really like the whole digital stamp thing, but it's still pretty new to me, and I need to become more savvy with my printer. The printing was a bit fuzzy on these, so I went over the image after I was all finished watercoloring with a fine tipped black marker. I used the Sweet Stop Sketch Saturday #6 for my inspiration. You can check out some of the wonderful cards created by the design team members here. I loved working with this sketch, and can't wait to try many more. I hope you will decide to play along too!
Here's a close up of the card, so you can see the pretty glitter more clearly! I just LOVE glitter!! Bling it out, baby!!
