exciting news

My life is indeed pretty exciting, but today I want to share some grand news for other people in my life.

First of all, the winner of the Waffle Flower Stamp Set is Joanie! (I will shoot you an email, Joanie). Fun stuff for Joanie.

The actual reason for my post is to share a new development in the life of my sweet and energetic friend, Susan Opel.

Susan and I


Not even kidding, she is such a hoot. This photo is from one of the first times I was able to hang out with her, round about 2009. Ha, ha! Love it! We spent a lot of years working for Paper Crafts Magazine and becoming crafty buddies. We both love trends and keeping up with the latest and greatest in our little world.

Well, I knew it would not take long for some smart savvy business to snap Susan up in one capacity or another (since our beloved magazine close shop less than a month ago). Today My Favorite Things Stamps announced that Susan will serve as their Creative Ambassador. (Ha, ha, why do I think Susan created this title?) She will rock at it. For starters, she is heading up an amazing design team for MFT and will be hosting a new blog called MFT Challenge and Inspiration, it is is all about color and creativity.

Her team is amazing! There will be lots of challenges including a bi monthly sketch challenge (love me a sketch challenge). You will definitely want to click HERE and slap a bookmark on that baby.

And, since I feel the need to give MFT Stamps a shout out of my own, here is a favorite card I made using their adorable stamps and dies.

Watt's Up Card


Seriously? Clean, crisp, graphic, that is my kind of card. Congrats to My Favorite Things and especially to Kim (the owner) for being such a smart cookie.

Happy New Year!
