EXCITING NEWS!!!..and a Mojo Monday card for ya :)

Happy Monday everyone!

I am BURSTING with excitement this morning as I am able to announce to you that I have been chosen for a Design Team position with A Walk Down Memory Lane!
I will be designing monthly Card Kit samples, doing product reviews, writing for their newsletter and having a TON of fun! When Lisa called me last night I was about to jump through the roof. She has an excellent reputation to work for and she offers a ton of product through A Walk Down Memory Lane.

One of the nice and exciting things about this company is that they carry items from ALL the best scrapping/stamping brands, as opposed to being brand-specific. It's literally ONE STOP SHOPPING for ALL of your scrapbooking/rubber stamping/papercrafting items! When I saw her store, I was saying to myself "oh boy...I'm in trouble!" LOL!

You really should head on over and check it out. Some really great stuff and the prices are great, too! You'll be seeing me a lot more over there now, too, so make sure you stop by and say hello to me and the other 4 new DT girls. We are going to be having some fun!

I will be designing for AWDML from October through March. Thanks to all for you support and can't wait to share my first assignments with you!!!
Now, for this week's Mojo Monday card....when I saw Julie's sketch for this week, I thought PERFECT! I can use up some BG Figgy Pudding and SU Kiwi Kiss scraps that I liked too much to just throw away.
I also used my LAST piece of True Thyme CS by Stampin' UP! (sniff sniff...RIP True Thyme)...would someone tell me WHY this got discontinued? LOL! Anyway, layering the papers the way the sketch was drawn, I then embellished using some ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Hero Arts baubles in the bottom right corner, and Hero Arts mini-rhinestones for the outer trim on the snowflake.
I LOVE the new set, Snow Swirled, by SU. It will definitely be VERY loved this season as I begin my Christmas Card frenzy! To finish off the card, I stamped the Season's Greetings Sentiment in the middle using Timber StazOn and used Stickles in the outer corners of the snowflake and also in the upper, smaller snowflake. Hope this gets you all in a cheerful mood! Thanks for looking as always!
See you soon back here and on the A Walk Down Memory Lane site!
