Exciting Announcement!

Do you recognize this person?


Do you recognize this pet?


I have been accepted as a junior design team member for Mark's Finest Papers, wahooo!!! I'm so excited to get the chance to know Faith (the photo at the top of my post), the owner of Mark's Finest Papers, the rest of the design team, and Speedy the Cat so much better! My cat decided to rebel against this newfound friendship and knocked over a vase this morning on the dining room table ruining two cards in progress. A little bit of angst there I think, but she doesn't need to worry. Faith won't be letting go of Speedy any time soon!

If you're at all familiar with Faith you know her line of stamps is as beautiful as her smile is sunny. She is a very active member of the SCS community and if you have a card in a gallery there, more than likely you have a nice comment from Faith.

She decided to start up her own company, and there have been lots of great releases so far and exciting things to come! (the sunflower has been a favorite of mine so far!) You can find some gorgeous samples from the design team on the Mark's Finest Papers blog here.

And the stamp sets and great paper choices, ribbons, charms and other stamping tools at the storefront here.

Hope to see you at the next new product introduction blog hop in June or for the weekly challenge on the design blog on Saturdays! Today's challenge is to use the spotlight technique! And once I dry off my tabletop and cardstock, I am looking forward to playing along. :)

Woo-hoo! Congrats Peggysue! What a treat for you, and for Faith, too!

It's a good time to rhyme. hee-hee.

I like that "Junior Design Team Member" because it makes me think of Junior Mints or Junior Girl Scouts who sell Thin Mints, and you are just as sweet as they are!

Doing the happy dance for you!
