SC209, CC199 Special Delivery and some great News...

Good Morning everyone!!!

I have to share some wonderful news with you!!!! Jennifer Meyer has asked me to join the fabulous OCC Group - OMG - I always loved playing in the Challenges and now I'm part of this fab group - wahhoooo!!!!

I'm so happy to announce that Jackie Pedro is not only a Verve Diva now, but she is also part of the OCC Group as well as the super talented Kim Teasdale!!!

I hope you hop on over to the OCC Blog and check out the news as well as the new Banner that you can add to you blog!!!

This new coming year will be filled with lots of fun Challenges and I hope you all have time to play along!!!

Next I have a little something for you to play my *Blog Candy* - I recently had a wonderful lady visiting me.....She is a member of the Dirty Girls and if you would like to play just let me know which one of the talented DD ladies has visit me - You have only one try!!!!

If there are more than one that player that have the correct answer I'll have my little Miriam
pick the final winner!!!

You can play until this Saturday January 03,2009 10:00 am for the beautiful new Papertrey Ink *Raspberry Fizz* Design Paper and (1 each) and 5 sheets of Raspberry Cardstock. I also added some of the Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon and Stitched Ribbon plus I added some of my favorite Pearl Gems!!!

Only US, APO and Canadian Addresses may play!!! Have fun - can't wait to hear who you think stopped by - he, he, he!!! I'll have a picture waiting for you to proof it too.....LOL!!!

So much going on.....now I want to share my card I made for the SC209.....


Like I said our family is completely of schedule.....so I was up again late and just saw that Roxie posted the SC209. Since it was a pretty simple Sketch I thought I'll play along!!!

The colors I chose are from Tuesday's CC199 - So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter.....pretty though colors if you ask me, but I had no choice - it's late and my gray cell's are running out of steam - LOL!!!

I used the new *Special Delivery* Set from *There She Goes*. It will be available on January 1st, 2009 - check out Jessica's blog for more *Sneak Peeks*!!!

I made the Sketch into a 5" x 5" card. I colored the image with some matching Prisma Markers as well as the Handsome Hunter Marker. To dress it all up I added some Silver Brads.
If you go down one more post you can see another card I made with this same darling Set!!!
Hope you like it??? ~TFL~
I WANT TO WISH EVERYONE A HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!!
