Happy New Year

Happy New Year all my 'bloggy" friends!
The New Year brings many changes for me!
Some very exciting, some very sad.

First for the exciting!
My dear friend Darlene (known as Dar) and I have teamed up
and created our very own challenge blog called
No, it's not our 'bra size''s our first initials!
We have the most FABULOUS Design Team on board with us
and we can hardly contain ourselves to get started.
so when does the challenge start you ask?
January 6th!!
Be sure to join in, as not only is there 'fabby' inspiration,
but we have 'fabby' prizes as well!
You can see 'who' our Design Team is by going to

Next I have joined the Sparkle N Sprinkle Design Team
as a Permanent Designer!!

Woo exciting is that!
I LOVE their beautifully created stamps, embossing powders and glitters! will be seeing lots of glittery creations coming soon!

Now for the sad news,
I am no longer on the Crafty Secrets Design Team
as they have closed up shop.
I have loved every minute of working with the CS girls
and the CS products.
However Crafty Secrets still has an Etsy shop where you can purchase.

I also have resigned from The Shabby Tea Room.
It was such and honor and a privilege to be on that team.
You will see a few of the Design Team girls from there
on our new Double D challenge design team....
and their designs are GORGEOUS.
There will be more news coming about The Shabby Tea Room later!

I have backed down a bit on my designing for Classy Cards 'n Such as well.
I will only be creating a card once a week for the next 2 months
instead of my usual 2 per week.
More news on this later as well.

So after all that, I am going to finish out the year 2015 with one favorite
Design Team Card for each month of the year....
hope you enjoy the 'recap' and I had
an extremely hard time choosing!
