The Perfect Day...

Have you ever had one of those days where you should honestly play the lottery because it just seems like everything is going perfectly? Yesterday was one of those days for me.

As you know, I started out the day over at Cornish Heritage Farms celebrating Lisa Strahl's 30th birthday and the release of 16 new backgrounders. But I will come back to that in a minute because I am about to bust with my fun news.

Remember the book that I made for Kat? I made it for a Creative Team application for Heart In Hands. I MADE THE TEAM!!! I am so excited!!! As part of the creative team, I basically get to take the classes from the instructors and remix them! How awesome is that?!?! And they have gorgeous classes...tons of altered items, papercrafts, home decor, etc. I am so excited (have I said that already?!?) :D There's also a fun, friendly message board over there so go over and check out the site, classes, and forums!!!

This is going to be a long post so let me intersperse it with cards that I made yesterday...
Card based on a sketch by Debbie Olson.
Supplies used:
*Amy Butler paper
*Kim Hughes Scripty words
*MM ribbon

So in the midst of all the Cornish Heritage Farms creating and really fun news coming through the web, I got some really fun mail. I can't tell you anything about it yet, but I will say that stamping and sharing will be involved within the next couple of weeks.

Time for another card?

This card based on a sketch by Tami Mayberry.
Supplies used:
*MM patterned paper
*Creative Imaginations paper
*MM brad
*Creative Imaginations ribbon

They also had games yesterday. Kim Hughes hosted a very fun bingo game which I WON!!! I get to choose one of the new backgrounders as my prize. How cool is that?!?! I am telling you, it was my day!

And my final card to share...
This card based on a sketch by Sharon Harnist.
Supplies used:
*Kim Hughes Pretty Birds stamps
*Imagination Project paper
*Bo Bunny paper
*crocheted lace
*misc buttons
I have also joined Shimelle's Christmas journal this year and actually did complete my first day yesterday, but I haven't taken photos of it yet so I will probably share it with you tomorrow. Today is the day for Christmas decorating so there will be very little playing for me (except for the Christmas journal and maybe one other little project I am hoping to whip up quickly.) What? A girl has to create at least a little every day... I hope that you are doing some creating today!
