Sweet 'n Sassy Blog Hop!

Hello everyone! Happy New Year!

I'm so excited that this first day of 2009 is also my very first day on the Sweet 'n Sassy Design Team! We have all been busy behind the scenes, so I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks of some fabulous new stamp sets and that you'll join us tomorrow night on the Sweet 'n Sassy forum for the release party. To entice you to come, I am giving you a little preview of a project that I have been working on...the pic of the whole thing won't be posted until the festivities at the forum are well on their way.

In celebration of our new design team's debut, Korin has given each of us some blog candy to give away. Mine is the set, Floral Flourishes, which I used to faux emboss the background of this Basic Gray Basic Grey card. I stamped the flourish on SU Basic Gray card stock, first with Night of Navy ink, then again with white craft ink. The designer paper is from Basic Grey's 6 x 6 Boxer pad. The scripture sentiment is from another new set, Love of a Friend...I know that this set is going to get a lot of use, especially for my Bible study girlfriends. I take a handful of cards in every week...there are always birthdays, anniversaries, illnesses, and sometimes simply the need for a little encouragement. These sentiments are perfect!

If you started today's hop at the beginning you should be on to today's last stop, Korin's. Be sure to make the rounds today and tomorrow to see all the fabulous cards my design team mates have created (see the schedule on the sidebar, right), and don't forget the reveal party tomorrow night! That's when blog candy winners will be announced!
