Some Wonderful News and Sunday Sketch and Stamp...

Good morning!  I have a card and some wonderful news to share with you this morning!  First, I'm so happy to be able to share that I have been asked by some very dear friends to be a Guest Designer for the Busy Beauties Boutique for the month of May!  I'm so honored  to be a part of this extremely talented and amazing group, and I am thrilled for the opportunity to share some of their fabulous images with all of you through my cards.  My first project for BBB came about, because the Busy Beauties Boutique is sponsoring the Sunday Sketch and Stamp this week.  For this challenge, I used the Baking Beauty and Polka Dotted Love Oven Mitt digis from the BBB store.  I colored the images, and lucked out once again when I went in search of paper for my card.  I found this DCWV Nana's Kitchen paper matched perfectly.  The image was colored with Copic markers, and I decided to keep the embellishments and bling to a minimum, because I wanted this wonderful image and great sketch to shine.  Did you know that the Busy Beauties have been busy indeed, as they have just started a new Busy Beauty Creation Station Blog, where you will find frequent challenges, newly released digital stamps, customer spotlights, special posts by design team members, blog candy, and oh, so much more.  You've really gotta check it out!!

Please be sure to stop by the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Blog for lots of inspiration from their design team with this wonderful sketch challenge, and be sure to upload your card or project for a chance to win some free Busy Beauty Boutique images of your very own!  Thanks so much for stopping by today, may God bless and keep you and may you have LOTS of  happy stamping!

Love ya,

Hi Lorie! Congrats on being chosen as guest designer for Busy Beauties Boutique. Now I'm wondering if they're changing their name for this month's challenges...I noticed you said your first project was for the "Busty" Beauties Boutique. Hmmm! Now that cute Baker Beauty is a little busty but I'm sure that wasn't the main focus. LOL!
Love that delishious card. They are so blessed to have you on the team because everything you make is awesome!!

It's been a long time since I've visited the blogs of my dear SOTC sistahs. All the company have left and I hope to stop by more often now that I have some more time.

LOL!! Judy, that's so funny!! I didn't proofread very well, did I? Anyway, I fixed it (reluctantly). I might have gotten more colorful comments if I'd just left the "Busty" in there. Heheheheh!!
