My First Pixie


Happy Wednesday! Another week almost half over now. And I tell you, after the way this week has been going, I can not wait for it to be done! Having sick kiddos at home really puts a wrench in all the plans and good intentions. Good news is that my son is at school today and he was excited to go! Not so good news, my daughter now has a cold and is pretty grumpy. But, I guess we do what we can and go from there.

I do have some good and exciting news to share with you and a card too. First, I've been asked to join the senior design team for The Pixie Cottage! I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to do some more design work and The Pixie Cottage stamps are super adorable! I want to thank Michelle, the owner of The Pixie Cottage, for the chance to work on her team and with her stamp line! I can't wait to get my DT packet and start playing. The Pixie Cottage stamps can be found at Michelle's Scrapbooking along with a long list of other fabulous stamps and crating supplies. And I've personally ordered from Michelle and her service is outstanding!

I created my first Pixie Cottage card today in honor of my new DT position.I've used the image Valentine Hannah by Sandra Hammer.I just think she's so sweet!

I've colored her with Copics. I was aiming for a country feel to this card, so I used some Graphic 45 papers and distressed and stitched the edges. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday. I've kept the embellishments simple and just used some lace and gingham ribbons with a flower charm.

Thanks for dropping by today. I hope to get some blogging time in later this afternoon. Hope to have a chance to visit you too. Have a great afternoon!

Happy Stamping,
