The Big Announcement....

Okay, I think I'll have a coup on my hands if I string y'all along any longer! LOL! So here it is...

I'm now the newest member of the Cat's Pajamas Design Team!!! Holy cow! I'm so excited! I just about fell out of my chair when I read the email from Alma last week! I made this card the night I found out, but it fell behind Cindy's counter and she had to pull out her counter and cabinets to retrieve it for me before I left yesterday! (Thanks Cindy, you ROCK, Sistah!) All images are Cat's Pajamas. I masked the television to place Sprinkle in the TV and then colored with prismacolors and mineral spirits. ETA: In my excitement (and tiredness) I totally forgot to mention that Sprinkle in the TV was HEAVILY inspired by Karrie Baker. What a dork I am!!! The background uses two different asterisk stamps on Pretty in Pink paper. The top Basic Black scallop is made with my slit punch and I used crystal effects to adhere the rhinestones to each scallop. The presenting word window is stamped with Karen Foster Snap Stamps. So get ready to see a LOT more of Sprinkle and her furry friends in the coming months!

And here are some pics from my trip... We did some shopping at Impress, A Muse and Rubber Soul. We did some stamping at My Inky Fingers Headquarters, and after it was all over - we were all Sleepless in Seattle! And then there's a pic of some of my A Muse purchases. I left Boise with 75 pounds of luggage and came home with 96 pounds of luggage, so between these stores and all of Cindy's enabling I gained 21 pounds on this trip! LOL! Okay - at least 2 of those pounds were the espresso beans Cindy sent home with me! Too bad I didn't take a pic of the 5 pound bag she bought!!! :)

  7. Yeah Julee! I am so happy for you (bouncin up and down) but so sad for my wallet! Alma is definately a shrewd businesswoman picking you for her design team (as you'll be making me purchase more stamps). I'm so excited for you and looking forward to all of your gorgeous Cat's Pajamas creations!
