OMG - OMG - OMG!!!

This must be the most exciting stamping day in my life - I was chosen to be today's Featured Stamper!!!

My hands are still shaking as I'm writing this.....I think I'm on cloud nine!!!!

I have found my passion in stamping almost three years ago and I've been loving every minute!!!
Or should I say I'm totally obsessed with it??? Most of all I love everyone over on SCS for making me a better stamper - the challenges have really taught me to think outside the box and I have been stalking some of you and learned so much!!!!

Then my *idol* Beate Johns had asked me to be on her "Inspiration Team" and I thought I was in heaven and it couldn't get any better than that....but I guess I was wrong - LOL!!!

I'm still fighting this "Sinus infection" and that's the reason I'm home today otherwise I wouldn't have seen all of this wonderful action until I would have come home from church.....

I'm looking forward seeing every ones card and I'm thanking you from the bottom of my heart if you have played already or if you are thinking of playing today!!!

Have a wonderful Sunday ~God bless~
