A Big Hooray & Happy Birthday!

Hooray! It's been tough keeping the official news under wraps the last couple of weeks but I'm glad I can finally share that I made the 2012 SEI design team! I still can't believe it but I am very thankful and thrilled to join the team. Some of my first scrapbooking papers were actually from SEI, so I feel as though I've come full circle. Read all about the 8 design team members here. I am honored to be on the team with the super talented ladies.

Happy Birthday! Recently, I made a simple card for a very special someone's birthday and I thought I'd share it here. I have been meaning to use the Whipper Snapper elephant stamp for a while, but I couldn't get the smooth details coloring with watercolors, so I held off... until my bestie introduced me to Copics. I know Copic markers have been around for a while but I just couldn't justify the investment. Last month, we took a certified designer class for fun and I was immediately hooked. I took the dive and bought a few of my favorite and frequently used colors. Whaddaya think of one of my first coloring projects?

Materials Used: Whipper Snapper stamp, Zig marker, Kaisercraft sparklets, Copics markers, Memento ink, Canson 150 lb. Artist Series paper, Bazzill cardstock

Thanks for stopping by!
