Some News!

I have some exciting news to share.  Chelsea from Paper Trail asked me to join her new design team and I am thrilled to bits about it and it took like... oh, maybe a nano second for me to say 'YES'!  My official start date is May 15th but I can announce it today.  Paper Trail is a shop based out of Kamloops, BC Canada with lots of goodies, free shipping with a minimum order (free shipping is a BIG deal).  Chelsea also has a blog with plenty of tips, reviews, new product showcase, etc.  There's also a Facebook page to check out.
I'm still nosing my way around everything but to celebrate my good fortune, I created a card for a very special little fella who will be turning 6 next month.  It's ok for me to post this because as a 5 year old, he doesn't give a hoot if I have a blog or anything else about my crafty ways except that he likes to play with the glitter... big, gooey gobs of glitter!

Love this image... it's a stamp from Paper Trail  called Underwear Hero by A Random Fan.  Perfect image for Reid who is such a little character with a great sense of humour and he would put his underwear on his head just like this!
And a side view:
