Yahoo- A New Design Team For Me!!

I am so thrilled to be part of the design team over at the 2 Sisters Challenge Blog ! It's a fabulous challenge blog that will give me the chance to work on cards a bit more- rather than my usual frantic run to the craft room to whip something up before heading out to a party. I am so exzcited to really get crafty with my cards and see what kind of creativity comes from it. My first challenge was to make a Thinking of You card using one of many fabulous images provided by our fabulous sponsor, Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps. I chose an absolutely adorable little girl image- I used watercolor pencils and stickles to dress up her little tutu, and layered her over some olive and grey patterns. Maybe not the first color scheme that comes to mind when you see a little girl tutu image, but I always like to try something a bit different.

Now...here's the best part of this challenge....head on over to your crafty area of your world and create a Thinking of You card of your own. the be sure to upload it to Mr.Linky over at 2 Sisters Challenge Blog by January 7th for your chance to win a $10 gift certificate to Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps!! Fabulous- we all love goodies right?

Want to hear something even better??? Stacy, our wonderful DT Coordinator is collecting cards to give to patients at Brigham & Women's Hospital in Boston, MA, with the theme of THINKING OF YOU, HELLO, JUST FOR YOU & JUST A NOTE. She asks that you please refrain from using the sentiment of get well. As soon as you have created your card and entered it into the challenge, write a note of encouragement inside your card and address the envelope to "ANY PATIENT" and then place the card into an envelope addressed to Stacy:
Stacy Walker
15 Willow Way
Swanville, Maine 04915

When your package is on it's way please email Stacy at twosisterschallengeblog@live.com to let her know that you have sent your card. Stacy will be delivering the cards to Brigham & Women's Hospital on January 30th so you have plenty of time to enter and get your card(s) to her. The cards will then be handed out to the patients in their transplant wards. Our hope is that when they open up the cards it will help brighten their day.

I hope you'll take this challenge- find a moment to create a wonderful card and you'll find that it will not only put a smile on the recipient's face but it will put a smile on your face as well! =) T
