Some Exciting News To Share!!!! and a little Sparkle!

Happy Saturday! I hoping you are enjoying your long weekend. The weather here has been SOOO HOT & HUMID! Living here in the Northeast, we are used to having pretty cool weather, but this summer has been super HOT, and this weekend, the weathermen have been going crazy with Hurricane Earl heading up the coast. Thankfully Earl has decided to down grade to a tropical storm and head out to sea!!! So, as September continues, I am hoping that Mother Nature decides that she is done with hot flash, and throws some cooler weather this way!

Sooo...I told you I have some exciting news for you, and I do. I have been chosen as Wags N Wiskers guest DT this month....Wahooo...I am SOOO excited. The have fantastic images, and they have a amazing team of creative ladies. I am so excited to play with them :)

Wags N Wiskers runs a weekly challenge, and this weeks challenge is Glitter! I used this sweet little fairy Hannah from Wags N Wiskers, and because I wanted to play in WNW challenge this week, I used stickles on her wings and shoes. Can you believe you are seeing Purple on one of my card? Purple is not a color I ordinarily use, but I was at Stamped Designs (one of my LSS), with Mary, Peggy, and Pia, and one of the owners had just taken out this new Bo Bunny paper, and I loved it! I also told Mary & Peggy (who use purple all the time), that I was going to shock them with a purple card! Well, M&P, Do you like it????? Did I do a purple card justice??? hahaha......

Today is a day of first for me, along with posting my first Wags N Wiskers Challenge card, I am also joining Copic Creations Challenge for the first time. This weeks challenge is Pleats and folds. I figure Hannahs dress had this covered. I am always tryingto improve on my coloring, and have been watching a bunch of Suzanne Deans tutorial videos. It has been a huge help. If by small chance you have seen these, you should check them out. They are a MUST SEE!!! She is amazing!

Well, I am off to clean and get my house organized today. I hope you are enjoying the long weekend, and hopefully time allows you to get a little crafty. Have a great day, and happy Creating!
