I’m SOOOOO excited!!!


You may have heard me mention several times how VERY much I love the super talented Crissy Armstrong.   Everything she designs, both her illustrations and her coloring always blow me away.   Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of her work.    WELL, she just announced today that she is creating a new Design Team and blog to coordinate with ALL of her amazingly adorable images!!      I don’t think I’ve been this excited in a long time!    🙂  

All the details can be found on Crissy’s blog HERE.    Sooo, guess who’s applying for a DT position???   Yup, me!   And, I want ALL of my friends out there to try out too!   It would be so much fun to be on a team with so many of you!    So hurry over to Crissy’s blog for all the details!   

I almost forgot ~  I made a card for my “official” application to Crissy’s Design Team, using this so cute elephant, Ellie, illustrated of course by Crissy!!    The image is available at Squigglefly.com, along with LOTS of other awesome images by Crissy.



I missed a friend’s recent birthday and joked that I should tie a string around my finger to remind me of these important dates.  So this card is for her from me, since we all know elephants aren’t known for their memory!    The balloon is attached by real thread.  

The dp is from the brand new Basic Grey green at heart 6×6 collection, which I love!    I used the Martha Stewart corner loop punch around the circle and on the corners.   If anyone is interested, I could do a tutorial on how to use the corner punches on round shapes – just let me know.  

So run, don’t walk – go to Crissy’s blog and tryout for what I’m sure will be a VERY fun Design Team to be a part of!!
