Happy Hump Day Everyone!!! I am so thrilled to tell you I was chosen to be a designer for Inky Impressions. I am so excited!!! I can't wait to start working for this company. If you haven't seen their adorable stamps go check out their STORE. They are the sweetest, you will be so glad you checked them out. Also if you like you can go visit their BLOG. I also wanted to say CONGRATS to all the other new Inkettes. Here is the link to their blogs as well. Congrats Ladies


And I wanted to thank Nicole and Tonya!! Thank you ladies for this awesome opportunity!!

Today I decided to do the sketch challenge over at SCS, SC240. I flipped the sketch so I could use this sweet Sugar Nellie my friend stamped for me. Hope you like my card today and thanks for stopping by.

Congrats on the DT Crystal.

I have to confess to being a little jealous. I've been trying and trying to get on a DT but without success - I guess I'll just have to keep at it!!!

Great card too.
