Designed2Delight Reveal

Hi ya friends,

I finally get to share the news I've been so excited to share with you!!! I will be on the cover of SPORTS ILLUSTRATED SWIM SUIT EDITION!!! I was notified that I was a finalist for their special "Hot Teachers" edition & last week I received the photo of the cover to be released in June!
Here is a sneak peek for ya:

                                                             APRIL FOOLS DAY!!! LOL ;)

Sorry about that! Hee! Hee! so evil of me ;) For friends who may not be familiar with what happens on April 1st quite simply, it is widely recognized and celebrated as a day where everyone plays all kinds of jokes and foolishness and that was my attempt to fool ya :) Me as a "Hot Teacher" in Sports Illustrated is seriously funny! As if...

But now, the real news is that I've been invited to join the Designed2Delight DT!
Today, I have the pleasure of sharing my first card as part of the DT. I used the Digi stamp called "Spotty Dotty Watering Can."

Here's my card:
 Such a sweet image don't ya think? I printed it twice so I could pop up the flowers & the butterflies. It's colored with Copics & I added some pearls with my fav Viva Decor paper pen :) I mean, shouldn't every girl's watering can have pearls??? By all means...

Here's a closer peek:
I added some Glossy Accents underneath the watering can so it looks like it's sitting in a little puddle of water & a little on the spout. The butterflies & the centers of the flowers have Stickles on them. I added a few stick pins through the bow & finished it off with a sticker sentiment on the bottom right corner that reads "Gracias."

Spotty Dotty is the fabulous Freebie for April to get you started on the progressive challenge at the Delightful Inspiration blog. Pick it up by Thursday, get crafty, & create a card with this image & the next one will be emailed to you. Be sure to check out Faith's blog (Delightful Inspiration) for all the deets!

There are some amazing cards the DT has created to inspire you at the Card Ideas blog too!

Thank you so much for peeking!
Go out there & fool someone today ;) ---> but keep it nice!
