HELLO! Last night, I was not feeling my best, so today my goal will be to get a project ready for you! I am still under the weather, and I am planning on resting A LOT today. If my children cooperate, I am even going to take a nap.
I am so excited to announce that starting this week I am part of a NEW Design Team that coincides with the Sweet 'n Sassy Copics Junkies group and club. While they are NOT the same thing, I thought it would be a good fit.
The NEW COPIC CHALLENGES actually start tomorrow, but there was SO much excitement over it, we decided to open it up! You can POP in the blog HERE to see this week's colors. All future challenges will be held on Wednesdays, but since there was a SNEAK PEEK into the challenges this weekend, I thought I would post here today.

Here are the details of this project and then I have MORE announcements!

I made this card for my husband for Valentine's Day. Yes, it has flowers on it, but you know what? He will look at it, say it is nice and set it aside only to not look at it again, so I made it special for ME! LOL The banner I drew and colored in...


Stamp Set: Cuddles & Hugs

Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Pacific Point, Whisper White, Zac's Place DP (?)

Ink: Black Adirondack, Copics YR16, YR07, B29, B24

Accessories: 5/8 Chocolate Stitched Ribbon, Water Dew Drops, Primas, Mini Glue Dots, Nestibilities

Now other news and another announcement... We are sad to say that Lorie Ames and Sarah Anderson have needed to step down as Belli Challenge participants. I want to thank them publically for joining us and participating in the Belli Challenges. We appreciate them sharing their talents with us!!!

I would love to introduce you to TWO new Belli Challenge participants.

Anne Harada - (itsapassion on SCS)
Joanne Travis (sleepyinseattle on SCS)

We look forward to seeing what they are going to share with us each week!

Remember the friend whose children I watched this weekend? Please keep their family in your prayers. She was rushed to the hospital this morning for emergency surgery AND her Mother-in-law passed away today too. She will be in the hospital all week. If you would like to send them a card, you can contact me at adickinson@wi.rr.com and I will give you my mailing address and pass the cards on to them.

Today is Created By Courtney's Challenges and with everything that is going on, I have needed to step back from that responsibility to focus on other things. The problem is there is ALWAYS good things to do, but I need to be sure to keep my priorities in focus and I can't do it ALL! *gasp* Did I just say that!? LOL

For your viewing please check out what Jeanette made today! WOW!

Anyways, don't forget to see my side bar and check out their fabulous projects and challenges. I will be back a bit later in the day with something to share with you! Have a blessed day!
