Some really exciting news!

Hi everyone!  I have some exciting news to share!  Did you all see this announcement?

In honor of Gina K, I thought I would share a couple cards I have made over the years using her amazing stamps!  Here goes a trip down memory lane....

From August '08: I made this card with Just So Hippy! for one of my August '08 Dirty Dozen projects, the theme that month was All That Glitters. 
From October '08: A Christmas card I made using Magic of Christmas and one of Taylor's old sketches (TECC39).

From March '08: Here is a Mother's Day card using Framed Flowers.  I actually won this set from a release party challenge (remember that Carolyn?)!
From October '08: Last, but not least, a trio of Christmas cards that use images from A year of Flowers and Magic of Christmas.  The Dove card on the right was published in Paper Creations Magazine, the Winter 2009 issue!
Here is a NEW card for Gina K's current release challenge #1, to use things with odd numbers. I used 3 flower blooms, 3 rhinestones on the circle and 3 rhinestones on the branch flowers.  The birdie is from  Home Tweet Home.
So thank you Gina for the years of inspiration!  I am so happy you have invited me to be a part of your design team family!

With taking on the responsibility of this new design team, I had to make some tough decisions, and have a couple changes to announce: 

I have stepped down from the Flourishes Bring Back Beautiful team.  I am so glad I got the chance to design with these fabulous ladies and regardless of how short my term was -it was an honor!!
I have decided not to sell Ippity Stamps anymore.  Yes, I am handing in my "Ippity Chick" card -lol!  All kidding aside, this was such a difficult decision as you ALL know my love for all things Unity/Ippity.  But, alas, there are only so many hours in the day, right?  So, I have an Inventory Reduction sale on all of my current inventory and as things wind down, I expect to offer my remaining inventory at deeper discounts.  Now's the chance to get those sets you have always wanted!

Well, that's it for today.  Once again, thank you all for stopping by and sharing my news!  Have a great day!
