News Flash!!!!

Hi, everyone!

Today's post will be an exciting one for me, as I will get to announce some wonderful news!  I have been selected to be one of five new design team members for Dies R Us!  I first became acquainted with this company as a customer, actually, and when they posted an opening for a new design team they were forming, I was quick to respond!  If you know me, you know I am choosy about what companies & products I endorse.  As a customer, I got speedy service for the dies I ordered and they carry a LOT of different die brands under one roof!  No more ordering a die here and another from a different company & paying separate shipping on both. Please go check out their store:  Dies R US and also check out the Dies R Us Blog too!  We will be posting new ideas to get your creativity kick started every day.  (My day to post is Wed)  If you leave a comment on the blog, you will automatically be entered to win one of ten $10 gift certificates to their store!  How great is that!!

Today I have a birthday card to share.  It's part of the "girl" birthday cards I'm making & I used a Lili of the Valley stamp for this sweetie.  She is cut out with a Spellbinders Floral Oval & the flowers & papers are from my stash.

The sentiment was cut with a Spellbinder tag die.  I'm hoping some little girl will love this card as much as I do.

Off to run errands so I can spend the afternoon working on more cards! The snow has stopped & I had the walk & drive shoveled out by 9:30 this morning.  Although they said the wind chill was -39 while I was out there, I was bundled up almost as much as those poor little kids you see whose moms send them out to play in the snow with so many clothes on that they can't move their arms or legs!  It's going to be 19 below tonight!  Temperature.....NOT wind chill!!  Remind me again why I live in Iowa!!!

See you tomorrow!
