Kari Ann, just email me at with your mailing address and choices of THREE different fringe assortments.  You can view them all here
Congratulations, Kari Ann! Thank you, everyone for the sweet comments...I cherish them all :)
The official winner of the MSN prize will be announced very soon!

Well, if you frequent the forum at The Nook, then you know we've been without power for a week now...I'm happy to announce that it's back up and running! 
While the board was disabled, a blog was set up so that we could continue to share challenges and news with all of you. 
My latest CARDS Challenge will go live at the blog tomorrow, but to keep with my "Wednesday" schedule at the forum, I did go ahead and post it there today. 
I'm giving away a PRIZE to the first (non Nook DT person) to complete the card and upload it here at the forum  *hint* the theme is "Give Thanks" :)

And here is a beautiful collage of the November for yours today!

I adore this newest set of stamps that I received from Ippity last week! 
I had my Christmas tunes playing, so I was really in the 'spirit' while making this little cutie.
I stamped, then cut out the image from a sheet of white cardstock.  I mounted that onto a sheet of patterned paper (by My Mind's Eye) and cut it out a little larger.  Using that same size, I also cut a circle from the front of my card.  The actual stamped image is placed on the inside of the card just for kicks :)  I then outlined the circle in baker's twine.
Heather has ALL of your favorite Ippity stamps by Unity!  Be sure to visit her at

It's a bittersweet time for Erica at YSS!  She will officially close the store's doors on December 31, 2011.  I can simply say that I have thoroughly enjoyed designing for one of the most fabulous scrapbook stores on the net :)
YSS will be greatly missed!
I will be working with some adorable papers and accents from Bella Blvd this month...I'll be sharing those soon as my last stint as a Design Team member *sniff*

I will see you all in a couple of days, if not tomorrow.
Take care,


  1. What a great card-I love the image and the twine around the circle:) TFS! Congrats to the winner also!

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
