Hi folks!

I'm excited you've stopped by today.  I can finally share some exciting news that has been kept under wraps for a while.  A couple months ago I received an email from Jan, the DT administrator at Papercraft Star, asking if I would be interested in joining her design team.  At first, I thought he had emailed the wrong person.  I mean, with designers like Jinny Newlin and Sylvia Nelson on her team, I surely thought she was mistaken.  After my reply to her that she had emailed the wrong person, she explained that I was incorrect, and that in fact she was inviting me onto the design team.  Wow!  I was completely blown away.  After contemplating it for, oh two seconds, I jumped at the chance.  I'm SO excited to be working with such an amazing group of ladies.  I do hope you'll try to join us as often as you can. :)

Anyway, now that I've babbled enough, I am excited to bring you my first project as one of the new designers for Papercraft Star.  The challenge this week is to include a sun in your project.  For all of the details, click HERE.

I've wanted to try this technique that has become super popular around blogland, and am not sure I totally pulled it off, but love how my card turned out.  The sentiment matches my mood these days, and I am truly content with how things have taken a turn for the better recently.  I thought using the cloud as the sentiment panel was kinda cool too.  This really did turn out like I had hoped.

I do hope you'll head over to the Papercraft Star blog to see what other wonderful projects are posted.  You can also visit my fellow designers by clicking on their names below.

That's it for me!  I'll be back soon with another something crafty.  Until then, I'm thinking of all of you while still on vacation. *wink*

What an absolutely gorgeous, pieced, sunny background, and I adore that you used the cloud to capture your sentiment! A beautiful start to a happily ever after term ;). Hugs, and welcome to the team!
