"Celebrate something" and some more news

Hi everyone!

Today is my first time participating in the stamp something challenge as a Design Team member. I am super excited to be part of the team!!

The challenge this week is

Celebrations

Our sponsor is Sweet and Sassy and they kindly gave the Design Team images to work with. I used Filmore Fox ice cream treat. Isn't he a cutie!! And so much fun to color.

I used my derwent coloursoft pencils and baby oil for coloring.
Designer Paper is from DCWV (sweet stack) and stampin up. Card stock are couture 80lb (white) and Stampin Up (really rust-retired).
The flowers were made using Martha Stewart Punches and I added some rhinestones as flower centers. Sentiment was computer generated. To finish it all off I did some sewing with my Janome mini. I also added some stickles to the flowers and image, stamped a little flourish in some corners and added ribbon.

Challenges:


Now onto my super exciting news!!

As some of you might recall I applied for a Design Team spot at Penny Black @ All Sorts. I am so super excited to announce that I was chosen to be part of the Design Team. It's a monthly on the first challenge blog and I hope all you Penny Black lovers will join us in that challenge. There will be prizes every month sponsored by the official Penny Black company. As it was just announced to me my term doesn't start until November 1st. Can't wait!!
A new challenge was just posted to the challenge blog today, so be sure to check out the fabulous creations by the Design Team!

Here's the logo for those of you who like to add it to your sidebar.

Thank you so much for stopping by today and sharing my great news!
Hope you liked the card and hopefully you'll get to play in this week's Stamp Something Challenge for a chance to win a prize from Sweet 'n' Sassy.
And if you have any Penny Black stamps, why not play the Penny Black at All Sorts challenge? It runs until the end of October.

One last thing...
This is our new kitten, doesn't it look like he's doing the happy dance for me? LOL. Thought it was so cute I just had to share it!

Have a great day,
Ellie.
