Happy New Year and An Exciting Announcement!

Happy New Year, everybody!
Are you feeling a little like this today?

I hope you were surrounded by loved 
ones as you rang in the New Year. 
My wish for all of you is that 2013
brings lots of exciting, good things into your lives.

Speaking of exciting, good things ...

Remember this card that I posted recently?

The image was an adorable Mulberry Wood image
made by a company called Crafter's Companion.
I entered it in their monthly challenge.

And then, surprise, surprise!
A few days later I had an email in my inbox
from Taylor, the leader of the US Design Team,
(Crafter's Companion began and is huge in the UK)
saying that she loved my work and would
I like to join the Design Team for a six-month term
beginning on January 1st?

Would I?
I admit, I took about three days to think about it,
because even though it's an amazing opportunity,
it's also a big commitment -- six projects a month!
But in the end, how could I say no?

So you're now looking at the newest member 
of the Crafter's Companion Design Team!
The card up top is my official first project,
using the Party Animal image from the 
sweet line of stamps called Strawberry Kisses.

I hope you'll come check out their blog,
play along in our challenges,
and pick up some of their adorable stamps 
Not to mention, look forward to all the fun,
crafty projects that I'll be featuring here on my blog!

Thanks so much for all your love and support!

Wishing you all a very crafty, blessed 2013!
