Some Crafty News...


Hello and Happy Wednesday!  This Wednesday is particularly exciting for me because I get to announce my first full time (not guest) DT gig!  I am super excited to be joing the Cut It Up Challenge Blog!  You probably remember this post where I mentioned my number one tool is my Big Shot....well, that is what this challenge blog is all about...using die cutting machines, whatever one you prefer!   

To celebrate this acheivement, I made a card that is specifically about feeling that sense of accomplishement, that *high* if you will.  Don't get the pun, well check out the card, because I feel like I am walking on air today!  Wahooo!  For this card I used my brand spankin new Simon Says Stamp Sunshine die as well as my favie-fave cloud die from Papertrey Ink.  I also added some pre-die cut bits from BasicGrey's What's Up collection. 

For today's Question of the Day- what is one goal you have that you'd like accomplish this year (it can be a calendar year, from your birthday, from now forward, whatever you want)?  Mine was getting on challenge DT because I LOVE challenges- check! 

Please come and play at the Cut It Up challenge on September 6th, which will be my first official post on the DT.  The challenges are every two weeks on Friday's there after!  There is lots of fun to be had over there and some good prizes ta-boot!  Oh and there is a FB page too, check that out for upcoming fun as well!

Thanks for stopping and sharing in my good news! :)
