Good Morning! Good Morning! It's a happy day today!
How are you doing today, my friends? Is it sunny where you are? I don't think it's suppose to be sunny here today. :P But again, as long as it isn't snowing: I am good! LOL!
This card was made for TechnoStampers Sketch Challenge #64. I changed it from a rectangle card to a square...in case you are new around here: I like to work with squares. :)
Check out the original sketch, MJ's cards and link up to others over at Mary Jo's Blog. Then join in!
I also made this card to celebrate some more news I have! I have been asked to join the Hanna Stamps Design Team! I had so much fun as a guest designer for Hanna Stamps in January...and now I am super excited to be a permanent DT member! I have known Kristi (HS owner) and Vicki (HS DT coordinator) for several years via Yahoo groups. They are both wonderful, fun, and talented women. I was just so flattered and honored when they asked me to be a guest designer. But when I got the email last week asking me to join them permanently...I was SHOCKED. Seriously. You know when someone is talking to you and you can't believe what they are saying and your hearing gets kind of funny and you feel light headed? That's how I felt. (I had also felt that way when Diana asked me the week before...but felt silly telling you.) I told Vicki that this would be a very mean April Fool's joke! She promised me it wasn't. Then yesterday I saw on that FEEDJIT thingy down there on the right that a few people came to my blog from here. I scrolled down and saw my mug. There it was. Right there with all those KEWL girls! Astonishing!!
Wowzers! How flattering to be asked to join 2 design teams in as many weeks! Unbelievable! Now I am going to share something with you that I have been too embarrassed to share. Do you know how many design team calls I have applied for? Somewhere around 15 or so. Do you know how many asked me to join them? 0. Yes, that's a ZERO. Well, maybe 1 really. When I sent some cards to Kelly it was not really a design team call, she was looking for some cards to display in her store in exchange for a Magnolia stamp. A one time thing. But she ended up forming one and asked me to join her. Thanks Kel!
So why am I telling you this? If getting on a design team is something you have been working towards...Don't Give Up! You never know who is looking at your work and liking it. And just because you are not accepted, don't take it as "rejected". I really tried to take it as "not what they were looking for at the time". :) Also, I think (and this is only my theory) that many companies are looking at those people who join in their company sponsored challenges and forums. So if there is a particular stamp company that you love...make yourself known. Known...not annoying! LOL! ;) That shows them how enthusiastic you truly are about their products and that you just aren't in it to say "I am on a Design Team".
So that's my PSA for this month. heeheeheehee
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a Spectacular Tuesday!
