Happy News and Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!

Yep.... this is a pre-scheduled post since I'm most likely still asleep from staying up waaay too late last night at the party we went to!!  

I've really enjoyed these last two weeks vacation with my family and they loved having my full attention.     No blogging or card making the entire time.  (Ok, I might have peeked at a few of your blogs while they were napping, but that's it, I promise.  LOL)  But now that I'm well rested;  I'm ready to get busy!!
AND will I ever be BUSY!!!

I've been asked to join and design for


I'm so very excited.  My favorite thing about creating cards is coloring.  I always struggle with the card designs, so this DT position will be such a blessing to me!!  Most of you are familiar with the Sweet Stop Sketch's and the Sweet and Sassy line of stamps but if not, then you MUST stop by for ton's of inspiration from the very talented DT girls.


And that's not all, but I can't say just yet!!!!
But I can let you know that I've been doin' the happy dance for the last few days!!!!  LOL  

Anywho, lets get to why you came....my card!!  LOL

Here is this weeks sketch


And here's my card



This card is also serves as my DT card for Elisabeth Bell today as well.   I've used Little Rapunzel from Elisabeth Bell's Digital Collection along with some My Mind's Eye Penny Lane DP.  The branch and flowers are actually stickers from Martha Stewart.  I don't normally "do" stickers but I had purchased them for another project and saw them and thought,  "why not?!?!"
