My Exciting News!!

First, I'd like to sincerly thank y'all for the heartfelt comments on yesterday's post.  I treasured each one (Well, I treasure every comment, but these even more!).  I hope you said your "I love you"s yesterday!

Now back to your regularly scheduled blog filled with rainbows, sunshine, and puppies:

I've been waiting since last week to share my big exciting news and it's finally official!

I made the Eat Cake Graphics Design Team!  Yippee!!!  This is my first design team so I am really excited!  Hence all the exclamation points!!!!

I've got a plan for my first card that I hope to make this weekend, but I thought I'd post an oldie-but-goodie:
I think this was a Mojo Monday sketch.  Stuart and Puppy Scooter fly were paper pieced with some rugged kraft paper and colored with prismacolor pencils, and given some sponged clouds and fringed grass to fly among.  As you can see, my obsession with SU Sweet Slumber DP goes back quite a while.  The sentiment is from The Cat's Pajamas.  I like these type of cards...not CAS, not "heavy lifters," just some fun layers and ribbon.  Be sure to check out ECG's A Sprinkling of Samples blog for more inspiration!

Whoduthunk when I started all these stamping shenanigans that I would end up as an Eat Cake Graphics Design Team Member, a SCS CAS Guest Designer, and be featured on the SCS Facebook page all in one week?  Just goes to show you it pays to DREAM BIG!

A big CONGRATULATIONS to you, Meg! This is a very deserving honour and ECG is lucky to have you. Your card is absolutely adorable. I love the way you put the little boxcar in between the rows of grass! Oh, and of course, Addison is too cute for words. :D

CONGRATULATIONS, Meg!! Your work is stunning and so much fun. You'll be awesome as an ECG DT member. You and Crafty Math Chick make some completely fun stuff with their stamps--can't wait to see more :) Good for you for DREAMING BIG--you have good cause for all of those !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I'm kinda hooked on them myself. I may need a 12-step program for this)

Big hoorays all around! Congrats on your well-deserved recognitions. Is recognitions an official plural? I guess so.
Anyway, you'll rock that DT gig! Can't wait to see your designs!

Addy and your card are equally cute. Well, Addy might be a tad cuter, but I might be biased by your awesome photo skills.
Can I just say, my word verification for my last comment was "topoo." Seriously. To poo. Oh boy.
