You can Learn Alot of Things from the Flowers...

...and you can learn a LOT about me, if you don't already know it, from this card ...especially if you can make it to the end of this post, LOL....

I think we all know as stampers that although we always work hard on a card, there are some cards/projects that you REALLY throw yourself into to make it YOURS.

On that note, I have a VERY special installment of Mercy's Tuesday sketch Challenge as I am revealing a BRAND NEW set from The Greeting Farm, being released on the 15th, simply titled "SIGNATURE". Each week, my friend Mercy brings us the most AWESOME sketches and we'd LOVE for you to play along! All you have to do is follow this sketch and enter your name HERE.Be sure to check out the rest of "Mercy's Muses" this week to see their takes on this SUPER fun sketch:

I have to tell you, I'm SO excited about this set. It's AMAZING. Not only does it include the FIRST THREE DIGI images that Club Anya ever released (now in Rubbah!), it also includes the Club Anya Crest, the signature Greeting Farm logo, and a "handstamped by" stamp! Be sure to check out the rest of Team Anya's sneak peeks over at the Club Anya blog today and leave them some love on their own blogs, too, to learn more about their SUPER cute projects:
Ok, so not only did I follow Mercy's AWESOME sketch this week, it was also time for an awesome "Make your own Embellishment" challenge over at DieCuts R Us! Now, Claudia is a HUGE supporter of TGF and actually carries the line in her store so this all ended up working out quite nicely as they are getting a little sneak peek too of this new "Signature" set that you can own on THURSDAY!

If you have a chance, be sure to check out the DieCuts R Us website this week because Claudia has SPELLBINDERS for 35% OFF til the 17th! That is HUGE!

I used the American Crafts "Craft Fair" collection of DP to create this Dahlia Fold flower that I just LOVED creating. Want to play along in this challenge? Click HERE.

Last but not least, a little more about my card:

If you've been coming to my blog for any amount of time, you PROBABLY know that my ALL-Time favorite movie is Alice in Wonderland. So it was a no-brainer that my signature pink card needed Alice and of course, my signature Butterfly. It was also WAY fun to have the Club Anya crest stamp at hand so that the very happy VP (me!) could add that into my signature card. My signature embellie? Well, one of them anyway...DEFINITELY a flower. SO the Dahlia Fold was a fun touch for me to add.

All in all, it's Signature Jess. Pink, girlie, and a little bit (ok, a lot bit :) LOUD.

Enjoy your day, folks! Thanks for sticking with me on this SUPER long post...I really appreciate that you're here on this journey with me! HUGS,(yeah, she signed it ;)
