Awwww, Honey, you Baked....


Ok, I confess...I've seen the movie Clueless a time or two :)    If you've seen it, then you know what line I am talking about, LOL!

However, whether you've seen it or not, today's challenge over at Little Paper Shop's blog is a SWEET one...and Baked Goods are the theme!


Today is actually a bittersweet post for me, as it is my last as a Design Team Member for Little Paper Shop.   {deep breath...}  I am really excited about some things to come in 2010, but in order for me to make room for a few of those things, I sadly must say goodbye to this team of girls who I totally admire and respect, and to Julia, the owner, who I ADORE.

Julia was the VERY FIRST stamp company owner to take a chance on me as a Designer.  My blog had MAYBE 20 posts, I was designing for a very small store team and had only DREAMED that one day I'd be designing with the women I've had the privilege to.  Let's just say I was STUNNED when Julia had me start out as a Guest DT and back then Laura Fredrickson was on the team.  I felt like I had hit the "big time"....and I had.  I was totally floored when she asked me to stay on as a permanent DT member and then even moreso when she entrusted me with the role of DT Coordinator a little less than a year ago.  It's a lot of work and organization, but the payoff was delightful and I thank you SO much Julia for all that you have done for me, and I know that a lot of doors have opened up for me because of Little Paper Shop.


Yikes..I'm getting a little choked up here, guys.  It's one of those moments I guess :)  Anyway, my card today uses the Basic Grey Nook and Pantry DP and I did some paper piecing and added that super fun embroidered brad as the "cherry" of the cupcake.  The sentiment simply reads, THANK YOU.   This card is for ALL my LPS girlies.  I know this isn't good bye thankfully as I will definitely keep in touch with them, but still, I want to thank:
Well, I'll be back later with the Club Anya blog hop so stay tuned!  I am SOOO excited about this month's release and our hop is HUGE!  You won't want to miss it!

Cheers, tears, and heartfelt hugs,
Jess :)
