Some exciting news!

Hi everyone! Today I have some exciting news to share. I was invited to be part of the BRAND NEW Stamp Simply Design Team for Sharon's Stamp Simply Ribbon Store. BE STILL MY LITTLE HEART!

If you are new to Sharon's store, she specializes in top of the line May Arts ribbon (sigh, a girl's dream come true!). She also sells the amazing Bow Easy, Crafty Secrets products, stamps from JustRite Stampers, Kaiser pearl and rhinestones AND puts together wonderful accessory kits featuring Websters Pages (shown above) and KaiserCraft 6x6 pads.

Those of you who have followed this blog or my uploads on SCS, KNOW my love for Sharon Johnson. She is my stamping idol! When she asked me to be a part of this team I couldn't reply YES fast enough! Here are the other ladies on the team, talk about TALENT! WOWzers!

My card today uses ingredients from the Stamp Simply Lilac Avenue Kit. I. Love. This. Kit. The paper is YUMMY and Sharon has put it together an assortment of ribbon, rhinestones, inks and pearls that will make you squeal with delight!

The bouquet image is from the JustRite Breath of Spring set. I love the images in this set -very versatile! I colored them with my Copic markers and added Stickles in the centers. See how I added the ribbon to the bouquet? I actually pierced holes on both sides and tied it around the stem into a bow. The 1/4" silk ribbon is the perfect scale for this!! The sentiment is from the JustRite Seeds of Kindness set. I used last week's JUGS19 sketch, I really am sooo drawn to circles!!

Next Tuesday the 23rd will be the Design Team's very FIRST monthly blog hop! There will be some AMAZING blog candy up for grabs! Nothing short of spectacular from Sharon, I tell ya. AND before I go, I thought I would post some of my favorite cards that use JustRite and Crafty Secrets stuff!

These first 2 use Crafty Secrets products, Cotton Scraps and Journal Pages:These next 2 use JustRite Stamper fonts:Thanks for stopping by!
