My entire day has been fun and very relaxing. I've spend most of my day coloring and that is a fantastic way to for me to relax and keep my mind off of Fibro. I started by with a new offer to join a Design Team and that came totally out of the blue! The second time this week that I've been asked to be part of a new team and that's so wonderful. It gives me such a feeling of accomplishment and is a joy. The only downside is that I'm not able to take on any new DT roles, but it sure is wonderful to be asked. I am currently on two teams that I absolutely Love, and I'm so thankful that both teams accepted me 'as is' despite some of the limitations Fibro places on me. It's a joy to create for both Baby Bud Designs and StampFairy and I'm so thankful to be part of both these awesome teams. I could no be happier. I do want to thank both Colleen and Jan for their kind and generous offers. You both are wonderful and I'm very touched by the offers! Thank you!! !
I am also excited about an an offer I was able to take on, which is simply to create one card for an upcoming challenge over at the Stars & Stamps Blog. I was eager and thrilled that I was able to help out and totally enjoy being able to take on small guest design pots. I'm also very happy to be a member and one of the card-makers for Operation Write Home and love doing my part for our Troops. If you would like to learn more about making cards for Operation Write Home, you can find all the details on their site HERE. If you love challenges, then hope on over to the Stars & Stamps Blog to find a variety of challenges. Two are my favorites are the Midweek Throwdown, which is every Wednesday and also the Sketch Challenges which are every Sunday!
And speaking of Challenges, I'm here now to post a new card I created today that was inspired by a variety of new challenges, the first being a brand new Copic Coloring Challenge, hosted by Suzanne Dean in her Color Me Creative Classroom HERE! This challenge is OPEN to all, all you need to do is create a sign up account and go into the Challenge Group. (Note: You do not need to be enrolled in any of Suzanne's classes to join), although I can also tell you they are fantastic and if you are interested now is the time to sign up, as she is offering a sale which ends today)!! I am very excited to be enrolling in a brand new class at CMC. It will be taught by Angie Hunt and will teach Coloring with Distress Inks.
I am also very excited about the newest Copic Coloring Challenge, as it's being sponsored by StampFairy, a wonderful digi stamp store. I am also very happy to be a member of the StampFairy Design Team, which makes it even more fun for me. I am only playing for fun, but everyone else will be playing for a fun prize. The winner of the challenge will receive a $15 Gift Certificate to the StampFairy Store, along with a package of the very popular Cryogen Cardstock that is one of my favorite cardstock to use with Copics. This is a Bi-Weekly challenge and the them for this one is 'Coloring Fur' which makes using one of the wonderful StampFairy digi images a joy.
My card was created with Lenny, by StampFairy, who I think I have determined is my favorite bear from the collection! I just LOVE him and he is available in so many styles making him perfect for all types of cards! This one is a Thank You card, but this image could be used for lots of other cards too!
This week there are an amazing amount of wonderful challenges and this card was also inspired and will be submitted to all of these! Remember they are ALL open to all and I invite you all to join the fun!!
