I have a little bit of news today: I am an official member of the new Dynamic Duos Design Team for the next 6-month term. Ack!! ;-D I’ve been sitting on this news for a few weeks, so I am happy to finally spill the beans!
I was absolutely thrilled to receive that acceptance email from Lesley Croghan, and I am equally thrilled to be alongside the fabulous talent of the other Design Team ladies. I’m honored, really. I’ll admit that I often have a bit of an identity crisis about my creativity and my cards. I still feel like a beginner in so many ways. Being on a Design Team is a huge thing for me, and I am really looking forward to this new opportunity. Look for my first post tomorrow morning!
Until then, I have a little something to submit for the Freshly Made Sketches #59 challenge. I did rotate the sketch for my card.
I ordered a few Stampin’ Up! sets this week, and I was excited to open them all but especially this one from the Elements of Style set. I knew it would be a fun one to color with my Copics. Before cutting it into 4 blocks to mat with Scarlet Jewel cardstock, I spritzed it with a little sparkly mist spray.
I also stacked on a few layers, because I guess I was in the mood for a few layers! I also thought it would be fun to add a big bow out of sheer ribbon and a cute Tiny Tag.
My husband entered the big year-end accounting season at work yesterday by working a 16-hour day to start things off. I anticipate feeling a bit like a single mom for a few weeks, and possibly here and there for a few months. Which really just means that I’ll need to try harder to include some time for creativity while he’s busy so that I don’t end up climbing too many walls. 😉 Especially with Winter approaching – LOL.
Thanks for stopping by today!
