News, Fabulous News!

Hello Everyone!
I have some wonderful news to share with you!  I am now a part of the Heartfelt Creations Design Team!   I can't wait to work with their beautiful projects every month!  I am so excited to share one of the projects I made for the design team call.

Yes, that is my son in the photo- he does not know his face is now being viewed by lots of ladies!  He is also a lot older now!  I just love the colors of this Balmy Breeze paper collection.  They worked perfectly  for framing this picture from Maine.
I purchased a paper mache frame from Micheal's for this project.  Detailed instructions can be found at the end of this post.

This is one of my cards submitted for the design team call-

I had so much fun using the Daisy Patch Flower stamps and matching dies to make this card.  The flowers were made by stamping a background image onto white cs, then applying a layer of gesso.  Once dried, the flowers were stamped in pink and die cut out.  Once cut, the edges were inked with a darker pink.  

 Be sure to stop back between May 1 and May 4 to participate in the Ribbon Carousel Birthday Blog Hop.  And, I will be sharing some more fun news in the very near future!

Thanks for visiting my blog!
