I'm a Penny Black Designer!

I am ssssssoooooooooooooooo excited to announce that I have joined the Penny Black Design Team! I could not be more thrilled for this opportunity to work for such a wonderful company with such amazing stamps, cardstock, and stickers! Yes, somebody please pinch me! A HUGE thank you to all of you who have supported, inspired and encouraged me on this journey so far. This is a dream come true, answered prayer, and total blessing.

Okay, now I can't share this exciting news without a few cards; right? So here are a couple of peeks at the cards I have over on the Penny Black Blog today. I sure hope you'll visit HERE to check them out and leave a little love. :)
Thanks again, my friends, for sharing in my excitement!!! HUGE HUGS!
