Please forgive my complete and utter excitement!!!    I just HAD to let you know who I received an email from yesterday!!!!    Crissy Armstrong!!    Yes, she has chosen her “Crew“!    And, guess who she actually asked to join her??    Moi!    😀    I was over the moon with excitement!   Way back when,  when I applied to be on Crissy’s DT,  I told you what an amazing artist she is and how thrilled I’d be to be on her team, so this is like a dream come true!!!   Woooo Hoooo!  

She has chosen a truly AMAZING group of VERY talented ladies for the team.  I’m really honored to be working with them all.   Our first challenge will be next Sunday, May 9th, so you’ll have a chance to meet everyone!!   

In celebration, I made a card today using one of Crissy‘s adorable images!   This image is called Forgiven? and is available for immediate download at Squigglefly!  



I found this Basic Grey paper at Archivers, it’s called Max and Whiskers.  It has some adorable dog and cat themed papers, so I knew I had to pull it out for this cutie!    The “dog house” is a gold paper from this collection that was embossed with the Forest Branches Cuttlebug folder for a faux wood look and highlighted with Distress Ink in Vintage Photo.  The sentiment is computer generated.

Well, all I can say is that I’ve had a GOOD weekend!    🙂    I hope you have too.   Thanks for dropping by to hear my newz!     Don’t forget, our first challenge for Sunday’s with Crissy will be next Sunday, May 9th ~ I can’t wait!
