More news!

I have more exciting news to finally share! I have been invited to guest design for DRS Designs! I found out back in February that I would be designing for them during the months of May and June, and had to keep it quiet all this time...and then when it came close to time for our reveal, I found out that my *room-mate* (also guest designing for May and June) is my good friend Dawn Mercedes! We had a great laugh together over the phone about that! Sharing this experience with Dawn is gonna make it that much sweeter! I'm so excited!

You might have seen me sneak my DRS banner onto my blog a few days ago. For the last few days I have been holed up in my stamp room, stamping cards to send to them for an April 27th deadline. I'll be sharing those and more over the next several weeks.

The card above is a card I stamped this morning for today's Limited Supplies Challenge, *Make Yourself at Home.* Jeanne challenged us to use colors inspired by the decor of one of the rooms in our home. I have a lovely Ethan Allen chair made with this is one of my favorites, so I decided to use DRS's backgrounders to make a card in these colors. I used markers directly to the stamp (P631 and H628) using Sage Shadow, Ruby Red, Creamy Caramel, and Blush Blossom, then stamped onto ivory cardstock. The sentiment (G604) and butterfly (G115) were stamped using Tim Holtz distress ink. I gave the butterfly body a little dusting of Fun Flock just for fun. I sponged all the cardstock, including the butterfly, mats and card base, using Tim Holtz distress inks, and after constructing the card, added a bow and a few contrasting buttons tied with cord as accents.
