EXCITING NEWS TO SHARE!!

Hi all!!! Whoohooo!! I have some exciting news to share....I have been selected for the Whimsy Stamps Challenges Design Team!!!! Can I hear a WHOOHOOO for me??!!!!

I used the Whimsy Rainy Day Emma stamp which I totally adore - she is soooo fun to color and really cute too! I added some little clear rhinestones to look like rain - I just love how this turned out!! And, I paper pieced the umbrella as well! This was such a fun card to make, I totally had fun with it!! I can't wait to share some more fun new Whimsy projects with you soon!! So, I will leave you with the recipe as I am off for a day of shopping with my daughter - she is very excited about having a whole day of shopping and a special lunch out at the Cheesecake Factory, YUM!! Thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate all of you!
