HUGE News & Thank You!

I have BIG news! I am going to be the Guest Designer at ScrapCity in July! Woohoo! I'm very excited! I will share what I create with a kit with everyone on that board, and of course, I'll share it all with you too! This is going to be so much fun for me! I can't wait! I'm thrilled that I was chosen!

I have a thank you to post for my very good blogging friend, Fiona. I received a gorgeous card and some amazing goodies from her for my birthday! Thank you so much Fiona!! You are so very sweet, and I really appreciate it!


Look at this gorgeous card! What a sweet Penny Black image, and Fiona's coloring is PERFECT! This card is so pretty and sweet! I absolutely love it!


Fiona sent me some Sugar Nellie stamped images. I love to receive stamped images. It's so much fun to play around with an image that you don't own. I can't wait to create some cards with these images. How fun! She also sent me pet rub ons and dog bone shaped brads. I love them! My Princess pages are going to be so stylin'!!

Next, Fiona had a letter featured as the star letter in this issues of Cards & papercraft. She sent me a copy of the magazine! I'm so excited to look through a UK magazine! Now, how cool is it that this UK magazine comes with papers and an accessory pack? This is amazing to me. I've heard many UK crafters talking about using freebie papers on their cards, and I just didn't know what they were talking about! Free papers! I'm impressed! I can't wait to use some of them! US magazines . . . why don't you do this? It's fabulous!!

Next, I just got this book from Amazon.com. Lisa over at 4 Scrappy Sisters recommended it, and I love Becky Fleck's sketches, so I was eager to make a purchase. Can I just say right now that I LOVE Amazon.com? I ordered this book on Tuesday afternoon, and I had it on Thursday. Their service is amazing, and I have never been disappointed with dealing with them. Hand down, one of my absolute favorite online stores! I'm going to take some time this weekend to dig into this book, and maybe even create a page using a great sketch! I have a busy weekend ahead of me, so we'll see if I actually get this accomplished.

I want to say that I have only EIGHT MORE HOURS until I get to pick up Jessica. I miss her so much! I cannot wait to see her! I hope she had a fantastic time on her Outdoor Education trip, and I'm sure she did, but I just need to hug her!! I'm still VERY behind on blog hopping, and I apologize for that. I will be catching up with you all very soon. Have a wonderful weekend everyone, and thanks for stopping by!
