BIG NEWS.....

Boy oh boy do I have some BIG NEWS to share with you today!!!! It's been so hard keeping this secret, as anyone who knows me, I have a hard time with secrets....but now I can shout it from the tops of the mountains....
I AM ON THE DESIGN TEAM FOR.....
***Kim's doing the happy dance all over her apartment***
I still can't believe that I was chosen...someone needs to pinch me!!! You can click HERE to go check out the announcement! I was chosen to design for the Anime stamp line! If you haven't seen the InStyle Stamps you NEED to head over to their site and check them out! When I first saw them I feel in love instantly! Yesterday was a big release day, and the new releases are so adorable, so RUN over to the site and order your stamps today!

Below is the second project that I made for the DT call. I made this cute purse which I got the template from Scorepal's website. The matching gift card wallet was made with a template from Lauren Meader's blog (that girl is truly AMAZING!!!). Of course then there is the side view so you can see the dimension of the purse. I used my K&Co smitten papers, along with SU cardstock. The stamp used is from the retro line at InStyle Stamps, her name is Suzy Q (who was colored with Copics and my red spica pen). Doesn't she look so adorable with all of her shopping bags?! That is going to be me the beginning of next week...I am headed on a small vacation with my friend....we are heading to a resort for some relaxation at the spa and hot tub, some crafting in our hotel room, and some shopping at the outlet mall....it's ALMOST spring break! I am officially on spring break tomorrow at 12:30 pm! Woo-Hoo!!!!!

Here is a close up of the cute gift card wallet! I know I will be making plenty more of these as they are so cute and so easy to whip together!!!!

And of course the finished inside of the gift card wallet. I used my MS branch punch, and my retro flower punch, the flowers, spacer, and brad are from my stash.
I am looking so forward to working for Virgina, Melissa, and the rest of the gang at InStyle Stamps! Thank you so very much for the opportunity of a lifetime! And a special thank you to all my blogging friends who leave me such wonderful comments and all of your encouragement, each and every one of you are a blessing to me, and I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your friendship!
Thanks for stopping by!
