Design Team Appointment...

OK, I've been just about busting at the seams for the past few days!   Now that I'm officially allowed to share with you, I can let the cat out of the bag!   I was just asked to be part of the Design Team for The Stampsmith!  The Stampsmith has some really gorgeous stamps, but I especially love their line of photostamps.   They're so realistic and so much fun to play with.  I'm so excited about this new journey as I absolutely adore their stamps and really look forward to having fun creating with them.  Please pop on over to say hi on the blog!   :)

In keeping with me 'letting the cat out of the bag,' this is my first official card (above) as part of the Design Team using a photostamp from the Cats plate.  Couldn't you just reach out and cuddle this sweet little kitten?   There's some really sweet kittens in this plate.  The sentiment I used was just one that I created on my computer since this is the first thing that came to my mind looking at this kitty.    You can check out The Stampsmith's website here for more plates, single stamps, art galleries and more!

I also have another project to show to you that I created a little while back using the lovely, Audrey Hepburn, this time in a tri-shutter card.

Here's a close up Audrey.

I'll be back soon with something else to share with you.  Until then...

Thanks for stoppin' by! :)
