Happy News!!

I am SOOO excited today because I get to announce some happy, happy news! I have been asked by Faber-Castell, premier art supply manufactuer, to represent them as a designer as they launch a new craft line, Design Memory Craft, at CHA2011. I even have a few things in their catalog! **squeal** The line is AMAZING--all kinds of new goodies to use with your favorite stamps.
This card began entirely as white paper and was crafted using several of the new items from the line--Pitt Pastel Pencils for the background behind the flowers, Art Grip Aquarelle Pencils, and Color Gelatos. (Yep, you heard me right-- Color Gelatos-- and trust me, they are as fun to use as they sound!!) Be sure to pop over to the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft blog to see more sneak peeks and fun projects.

This really is a dream come true for me and I want to thank all of my readers for their visits here, their support, endless encouragement, and INSPIRATION! BIG hugs and thanks for sharing in my excitement, too!!!!

PS- This is my second post for today--scroll down or click HERE for my first post which includes a video and my next set of Favorite Inspiration of 2010.
