Big News!!! My First Card As...........

How is everyone doing tonight?? I am doing great!! Now onto my wonderful news... not only did these beautiful stamps come in the mail yesterday..( I now own all of Ching Chou -Kuiks Fantasy Art Collections). I also was checking my emails when I got home yesterday(2/03) and I received an email from Lynette. Who is Lynette you ask?? She is the owner of Sweet Pea Stamps who sells these beautiful stamps along with other beautiful lines!! I gues you are just saying ok just get to it!! Well she asked me if I would like to be on her design team!! I couldn't believe it!! I was so excited it took me about 20 mins. before I could reply!! And of course I said yes!! To get the chance to create along with some of women who have inspired me so much is going to be an honor!! And you girls know who you are!!
So this is my first creation as a DT member for Sweet Pea Stamps!! No lie... these are my favorite stamps to color and create with!! They are a true work of art and when I color them I have to stop and say I did that!! But they are only so beautiful, not because of my coloring but because of Ching Chou- Kuiks beautiful gift of creativity. She just creates some beautiful images!! If you have never looked at her art work you should!! I am in heaven everytime I look at them!! I would be happy if they all made their way into rubber!! You can see them HERE.
Thanks Lynette for this chance to create for you along with your talented DT.
For this card I used Thousand Year Waiting she is on sheet#8, plate #30. And you can go and purchase her HERE.

It's she just beautiful??? I hope you like my first creation as a DT member , as much as I do. Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day it almost the weekend!! And Friday night (tonight) is my craft night with some great friends!!
