i {heart} papers hail and farewell!

It is both a sad and exciting day for our i {heart} papers design team. We are bidding a fond farewell to two members of our inaugural design team, Kendra Wietstock and Sarah Anderson. They are absolutely amazing stampers, with abundant amazing creativity and personality plus! We are going to miss them tremendously!

The rest of us have the wonderful good fortune to welcome the fabulous Lynn Mercurio to our team! Lynn is of SCS fame as she hosts the popular Technique Lover's Challenges on Mondays. Her most recent *hat* to wear is that of editor-in-chief of Stamp TV's Stamping Lifestyles online magazine. Lynn has been part of our team behind the scenes for a while now, so we are excited to finally publicly welcome her and look forward to seeing what she will do with the great products that are available in the ihp online store.

The card I'm sharing with you today is from yesterday's SCS Sketch Challenge. It features the fun Just Bugz set from ihp (by Our Craft Lounge). I stamped the bee on white cardstock, colored it with Copic markers, glitzed its wings up with clear Spica glitter. I used a scrap of BoBunny's designer paper edge punched with a Martha Stewart punch for the horizontal panel, and yellow Bazill cardstock as an accent. The bee was placed on dimensionals atop several layers of punched circles. A little *Faith-dot* border around the edges, and a bow of black and yellow gingham pulled the design together.

Make sure to take a look at the other ihp designers' blogs as they farewell Kendra and Sarah and welcome Lynn!
