Exciting News & Shades of Purple

I have some super exciting news to share with you. You may remember that I have been a Guest Designer for Mothers & Daughters. Tamara has been fantastic as the design team, I've loved working with them and the great products they have. Well, my Guest term is coming to close but Tamara asked me to stay on the permanent DT! WOO HOO! I was pretty excited! of course I said yes immediately. This news came at a great time after a long hard day, so I was happy. So I will have many awesome things to share soon.

What I do have to share today I made a few days ago but things have been hectic. Isn't this bird darling? It's a clear set by Inkadinkadoo. This is not based on a specific challenge but I wanted to finally use one of the awesome birds from this set as well as my new rectangle nestablities! Yes my LSS had some in!

I stamped the bird and colored in with various shades of purple using Prismacolor markers. I added some glitter to him as well for sparkle. I cut and embossed him using my new rectangle nesties and then cut the larger rectangle in SU Orchid Opulence. The white background was created using the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. The purple patterned paper is by DCWV. The ribbon is from my stash I got at AC Moore, gotta love $1.00 grab bags of ribbon! The cool metallic looking black dots I picked up at Joannes. Yes I am a FREQUENT visitor of Michael's, Joanne's and AC Moore. They are all real close to each other and about 15 mins from my house!!! Sick huh? LOLOL. This turned out to be somewhat simple but slightly elegant.

Thanks for stopping by.

Till later!
