Wanna Hear My Big News??????????


So you know I have some exciting things going on in my crafting world, right now, right?? I may have mentioned that recently. And some of you have been guessing as to what my news might be! Well, guess no more!! I'm gonna tell ya.....but only because you're my 'close friends' and I can keep it from you no longer!!!!

Two days ago....yes, I've been sittin' on this for TWO WHOLE DAYS now....I was on the phone with my Mom just before I was getting ready to go in to work. Well, I'm like most women these days, I multitask! So while I'm chattin', I'm also doing my face, fixing my hair, cleaning up the breakfast dishes, loading up the washing machine....you know the drill. I decided to check my email one last time before I went in to work.....(I am a habitual email checker, just so ya know)....and an email came in and I shrieked so loudly, that I think I may have hurt Mom's ear through the phone!!!! I got an email from a lady named Pauline, asking me if I would be interested in joining the MAGNOLIA DESIGN TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! aaaaaagggghhhhh!!!! I'm bouncin' in my chair again here, just remembering it!!!

So I emailed RIGHT back, saying that OF COURSE I would love to be on their Design Team and apparantly I am the first in the Canadian division!!! How super exciting!! Well, I didn't want to share it right away, in case it was a horribly sick joke or in case I maybe woke up.....but today when I went to the Magnolia Blog, there's my name and link to my blog under the Canada DT section!!! Whoopeeeee!!! Go check it out!!!

Anyway, to share my great news, I had to make a new Tilda card, right?? So yesterday I was blurfing again and one of my favourite places to stop is Moonlight Inker by Sophia Landry!! She is an amazing artist and I just LOVE her work!! I'm going to have to take a trip to visit her and get some colouring tips, because she is a true artist!!! Anyway I was inspired by her card yesterday, seen here! Sophia had used her oval Nestabilities on her card and can you believe that I have had the ovals since Christmas time and hadn't even opened them?? Well, thanks to Sophia, I broke them open last night and had a ball!!! And this card is my creation!!

I stamped Tilda with her basket on Stamper's Select cardstock by Papertrey and coloured her in using my Copic markers and then cut her out. Both patterned papers are by DCWV which I got from Phebe at The Town Scrapper (that's where I get all my Magnolias too!) and the cardstock is Apricot Appeal and Certainly Celery. I pop dotted the ovals and then pop dotted the Tilda on top. I added a heart brad on the basket and several pretty pastel buttons that I bought at the dollar store. I finished it off by adding Stardust Stickles to her wings and the striped paper also has glitter on the white stripes, so it's very sparkly in real life!!!

Thanks for sharing my good news!!! I really appreciate all your comments every day and your well wishes and support!!! It wouldn't be NEARLY as much fun without ya!!! MWAH!!! xoxoxox
