I'm So Excited...

for two reasons...

 First, I am very happy to say I will be joining the fabulous design team at As You Like It Challenge!  These women are so creative and talented, I'm totally humbled to join this amazing group.  I love the premise of this challenge, to be able to enjoy creating something that showcases your style.  

Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet Pea Stamps.

This week we would like to know what your favorite color is and why, which leads me to the second reason I'm excited.

I have just recently become aware of a wonderful digital stamp company, From the Heart.  I absolutely fell in love particularly with the Birdbrain images.  I just think she (he?) is adorable.  Since blue is my favorite color, I used 'Inner Tube Birdbrain' on this card.  You will definitely be seeing more Birdbrains from me in the future.  I used their current sketch for this card.

So, back to blue.  I have always loved blue best, but I think one of the reasons I continue to love it is because it reminds me of the beautiful Pacific Ocean which surrounds our island home.  If you ever have a chance to visit, don't pass it up, it is so very beautiful here.

OK, enough words...head on over to the challenge blog if you didn't start there.  You are definitely going to want to check out the DT makes. We want to see your beautiful creations and why you love your favorite.  Can't wait to see your colors!

As always, thanks so much for checking in.

    Your card is fab, and I would love to be relaxing like that bird instead of in work today but hey, gotta pay the bills!
    Pink will always be my fave but I love blue too and yes, it always makes me think of the sea too. I am lucky enough to have been to Hawaii, we spent a couple of weeks on the Big Island about 10 years ago and I dream of going back as it was so beautiful, both the island and the sea :-)

    Big hugs, Kat xx
