Big News and Sweet Surprises

I have to tell you that I've been bubbling with excitement over a few secrets that I will spill over the next couple of months..............finally I can let a little pressure off the cooker today to reveal something that's been in the works for awhile!!!!!

My Good Stamping Friends Frances and Cindy and I chat quite often on Messenger and thought it would be super cool to start a challenge blog! We have teamed up with a group of Super Talented Stampers to bring you Crazy4Challenges!!!

Each Saturday, we will bring you a challenge. Our Amazing DT will share their interpretation of the challenge for you to see.

We are stoked to have the support of some amazing Stamp Companies and will have sponsors and a monthly prize challenge!!!!

I hope that you will come and check us out!!!

Take a look at the Talent we have on this Design Team..... I am so excited to be part of this Fabby group!

And now for a little card!!! I coloured this Bellarific Image at the Prism class that I took with Paula, as mentioned in my earlier post this week. Paula has such a way with colouring and with choosing such beautiful colour combinations! I swear when I'm on my own, my images don't look quite so good, but they're coming along nicely !

I really just wanted to showcase the image in this case, so I chose to just use plain cardstock, with a tiny section of cuttlebugging...........hehe.........is that a true adverb? just for some texture. Colours are Baja Breeze and So Saffron. Ribbon from SU and Buttons from Foofala!!!!!

Hope you'll join us On C4C on Saturday September first for our Launch!!!!

Until then...........

Happy Stamping!
