New Design Team Gig

Oh, I am very excited and very belated in my announcement of being picked to be on the Simply Create Too Challenge blog Design Team.  It all happened back in September when my dad was really sick and then passed away – so this unfortunately delayed my ability to participate right away.

But just recently I was spotlighted and announced as a member of the team. Although the wrong photo was put in the post – it is of a fellow team member and is not me.  You can read all about that here!

In that same post I have my first Design Team project – the challenge for the card in this particular post is over but the newest one is Challenge # 74: “Thanksgiving/Thank You” – the link closes on Thursday, November 20th at midnight! So you could still hop on over with a card and link it up!! I sincerely hope you will!!

So without any more hemming and hawing – here is my card that I did for my first submission as a Design Team member:


I made this card by “shopping in my stash” since that was Challenge # 73!!

I used the stamp sets – Simple Shapes, and the butterfly is from Gladsome Garden!! Both are by Stampin’ Up!

What a great experience this is going to be for me – looking forward to working with all the lovely ladies on this design team!! Thank you to Diane Goolsby who is in charge and is a wonderful, caring lady!!

Thanks for coming by – I am feeling much better!  And I plan to share many more things with you!!!

ETA – I linked up this card at Loves Rubber Stamps Challenges – #127: Things with Wings

    Love your beautiful card. You sweet butterflies are as cute as can be and I love that they are just a bit darker in color than the spot they are sitting on. So so happy to be on the same design team with you!! Congratulations.

    Yayyy (again and again) that you’re on the Simply Create, Too DT! Your amazing creativity, paired with the ‘essence’ of why you create, guarantees that we’ll be seeing an abundance of awesomeness and loveliness from you! Cheering wildly at your sweet card here and, of course, swooning over the butterflies! Super sweet in every way! I’m aiming, once my Christmas card making ‘frenzy’ settles down a bit, to be more prompt with my comments! Just know that even when I don’t pop in until later, I’ve seen your cards, and have oohed and ahhed, gazed and admired, the minute they appear in my Feedly. Excited to see what you’ll be sharing in your new role (double yayyy for us…treats in store!). And if you want to expand your DT-sphere, check out Addicted to Stamps and More. We could be teamies *grin*
