Some exciting news....and a challenge!

I have waited so long for this day.....




I am a new member of Crafty Secret's DT!!! I can not begin to tell you how excited I am! I love Sandy's products soooo much! And the DT ladies are such talented exceptional women....and I am honored to work with them! So in honor of this big news, I made a quick card using a sweet image from the journal booklet. I had a few scraps on my table, (ok that is a bit of an understatement) and started putting them to together to create the background for this card. I added some vintage lace, buttons, and a little swirly felt piece. I can't remember who it is by. (I have that short term memory loss thing going on.....) : )





I know all week I have told you to head on over to Noel's Message Board! Would you humor me please, by going there? Why? Because I am today's host! The challenge I am giving is to use NO store bought embellishments! You can create your own though.....that is "legal" for this challenge. This was even a stretch for me, since I LOVE STUFF on my cards and LO's! So, I decided to create a homemade, paper punch turkey for "homemade" embellishment. The paper is from Noel's Home Sweet Home kit. The title was cut using my Cricut. Unfortunately, since I live in gloomy, rainy Chicago and it gets dark like at 3:00 PM. (Slight exaggeration....but not by much!), the picture does not represent the colors well. The yellow here looks quite icky! IRL, it is a soft, warm yellow.....so put your imaginations to work!


Saturday I will do the drawing for the blog candy! IF you haven't left a comment for the free Sweet 'n Sassy stamp set, click HERE, for your chance to win!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
