Jumping for Joy!

Finally can share my exciting news..... been jumping for joy since I got an email from Clare who is the lead designer for the Card group on Simply Scrapping Crafts to say that my application to join the team was successful.... Yeah... thanks Clare and Judy ( the owner of the site)  I am so excited to be part of the team..

Today we got introduced and were able to provide our first samples as a team.... all three D's.... yes my other team members are Dani and Dana.... how's that for a bit of a giggle...
Here's our intros and this weeks challenge.... a sketch by Clare.

Here's my sample card

SSC -sketch challenge

As you can see I turned the sketch upside down.  My card stock came with the sewing already printed on it... ( Got this set about 3 years ago at K-Mart to celebrate Breast Cancer Week)  I just had to add the tiny strips of paper and found a use for a little piece of daisy ribbon I had.  I made the die cut label using a couple of spellbinders, some masking and a HA background stamp.  Love this technique for making the frames ( see this video) Sentiment by Fiskars. Finished off with the rolled roses made with a Die-namics die.

I'm so pleased with my first sample ~ now to start work on next week's theme!!!  Please do come and join us at SSC.  There are so many great groups to join and it's all free....

Thanks for taking the time to read this today.... I'm still jumping up and down with joy
