Introducing the Paper Shelter Design Team!

Hello!  You'll be happy to know that I quickly heard from Charlotta yesterday and her blog candy prize will be in the mail to her in just a few short days.  Thank you to everyone for joining the fun!  I have already started collecting some fabulous items for my next blog candy give-a-way, so be sure to pop in periodically and see what I am up to ;D

I have an exciting announcement today.  Donna has started a design team for The Paper Shelter and she has asked me to act as the DT Leader.  This team is so talented, you are going to love what they do with these adorable images!  If you're not familiar with these quirky designs, please stop by their store and check them out.  They are unlike anything you have ever seen.  When you purchase a digi image, you'll not only receive the black and white image to add your own color to, but you'll also receive a colored image to create quick and beautiful cards.

Today I am sharing a card using Sophie in the Country.  She was great to use my Copics on and, as you know, the cards coming up in my class this Saturday do not use any Copics, so I had to make up for that by coloring up 3 images yesterday.  Wow, it felt good to!  What?  No, I don't have a problem ;D  The ribbon is seam binding and I have died it with Fired Brick Distress Ink Reinker.  Love the variation in color throughout the ribbon.

The DT has been creating up a storm with their new images, so please stop by their blogs to see what they have been up to.  You will find their addresses in my sidebar.  Also, swing by the Paper Shelter Blog.  We will have our first challenge in a couple of weeks, so feel free to become a follower and visit often.

Until next time...stay crafty!
