My Big News is.......

It's almost Christmas!! Yay!!


Ok, don't hit me. I'm kidding.


Last week I was sitting, minding my own business, when I got an email. From GinaK! She asked me to call her, which I did as soon as I freaked out for a second. And she invited me to join her design team! SHUT UP, you say!! I can't believe it myself! But it's true! I am honored to be a part of this group...and there are 5 other new talented stampers joining with me!!


She's doing this because there are some MAJOR changes brewing over at GinaK Designs...I tell you what, I don't think that woman sleeps. The surprises will be revealed November 1st...with a pre-party in the GinaK forum on Splitcoast.


So I thought I'd make a cute little Sandy Claws card to celebrate. I stamped him in Palette Hybrid Noir on Whisper White cardstock and then colored him with Prismacolors and odorless mineral spirits. I gave him a few extra spiffy details...used the Marvy Puffy Velvet fabric marker on his hat and sleeves. It's like a paint pen, but when you heat it, it puffs up! Fun, huh??? Then I thought he needed a slick ride, so I painted his sleigh with Diamond Glaze. That did the trick!


Added some brads, a cuttebugged layer, and some ribbon across the bottom, and I was finished! What do ya think? I know the other DT members are gonna ROCK the new stuff, so be prepared to be enabled!! *wink*
