Today is the day I can finally announce the exciting news that I have been asked to join the Squigglefly Design Team!  I'd like say a special thanks to my fellow Design Team member Stephanie Mino for bringing my blog to the attention of the folks over at Squigglefly.  I am looking forward to designing for Squigglefly and being part of this hilarious group of talented designers!

I wanted to share with a birthday card I made for my very sweet little niece Emma who is about to turn a whopping 2 years old.  I used the oh-so-sweet "Lisa" digital stamp.  ACK!  She's so cute!

Here are the copics I used to color the image:  

So, there you have it.  The cat has offically been let out of the bag.  As one of the newest members of the Squigglefly design team, I am looking forward to sharing more with you and hope to inspire you somewhere along the way!  Squigglefly will be sponsoring the challenge on the Craft Us Crazy blog the week of June 30th and I will be the guest designer so stay tuned for that!  Head on over to Squigglefly and check out the gazillion choices of digital stamps they have to offer.  There is something for everyone!  Never tried digital stamps?  Try it!  You'll like it!
