GOOD NEWS to share!!

I was going to share this earlier, but I wanted to have some cards to post along with my news!!!! ARE YOU READY FOR THIS????????

I was chosen to be a DESIGN TEAM member for SQUIGGLEFLY!!!! I am so excited!!!! For those of you who aren't familiar with Squigglefly, head to their website and check it out! They offer a WIDE variety of digital images that are SO EASY to download!! You can resize them, flip them, print them out a gazillion times!!!!

Here are the cards I made with the images they gave me to work with: This image is called Little Bo Peep & she was really fun to colour! I used my copics although I'm going to have to put them away until I can get a refill for my colorless blender!!! EEK!! I don't know how it ran out without me knowing....whoops!!! I used Bashful Blue as my base, and the DP is some sparkly stuff I got at Michael's awhile ago. I used 3D puffy paint on the sheep (like Liquid Applique but cheaper and easier to find at Michael's!!) The charm I had in my stash and the ribbon is blue taffeta from SU. I printed the sentiment on the computer!

I used the Whimsical Ballerina on this card, flipped her image and pushed her as close to the other one as possible. I made this card with my 2 nieces in mind - as they are both dancers & they both LOVE purple!!! Their recital is in a month or so, so I thought this would be perfect to go with the flowers we get them! I coloured them with copics and the sentiment is from Great Expectations by Verve Stamps. I added stickles to their tutu's - can't have a tutu without sparkle!!!! LOL I used Lovely Lilac and Almost Amethyst papers and a prima, pearl and ribbon from my stash!!! They are coloured with my copics.

Another Whimsical Ballerina - this time I made a 9x4 card. I used Pacific Point CS, DP from Michael's and bits of purples to accent the purples in the DP! She is coloured with my copics too! Here is the inside of this card:

The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusive set called Heather's Dance Ballet Tap Jazz & is a really great set for little dancers in your life!!!

Thanks for looking - and head on over to Squigglefly and check out their new images - I just noticed some new ones there this morning!!! There is one called Wit's End - and that was TOTALLY ME on Monday!!!! I was frazzled to the bone - work, family, know!!!! LOL

STAY TUNED for MORE NEWS soon!!!! I can't tell you YET, but it is GREAT!!!!! hehehehe

Hey Chris! Congratulations to you! Your caqrds are all so sweet. I really like the one of the two ballerinas together. I'll bet your nieces are going to love it! I am going to have to get some of that puffy paint you used on the sheep, it looks great!
