...A BIG Announcement

VerveGuestDiva

Yep! I am a Verve Guest Diva for the month of August! Julee Tilman sent me an email July 23rd. and ask if I was interested in being a Guest Designer for Verve Visual. My answer was a resounding "YES!". I have been a Verve fan for quite a while, and some of my favorite stampers just happen to be Divas already. I also get to share the honor with another amazing guest, Sankari Wegman. We will all be showing you the new stamp sets that will be available to purchase this month, and you will not want to miss this wonderful release! Our sneak peeks will begin tomorrow and run through Friday, so be sure to come back and check them out!

Thanks for sharing in my wonderful news, and I will see you all in a little bit with an all SU card...but first, I have to get a bit more sleep. I was up, on and off, until four o'clock this morning. After a couple of hours of sleep, I had to get up and get the guys off to school and work. We also have a new member of our family...a gray kitten that we have named Izzy. Apparently, she enjoys pouncing on top of your head as you sleep, so the last couple of nights and mornings have been interesting to say the least! :) So I will see you back here later. Until then...

Way to go Mercy!!! Julee is a wonderful lady and you'll be a great guest diva!! Know you are going to rock the samples! Can't wait till the release par
ty to see some of your creations :D

Hope the kitten Izzy settles in quickly so you can catch up on your sleep. Not sure if I should mention this but our grown cat still sits on us in the early morning. He starts with purring and if we don't get up to let him out so he can go prowl he will start with small meows and then louder ones, then meows in your ear and if all else fails, he will start playing "mousy mousy" with you (i.e. claws out and swatting at whatever body part is in the area). Just like having another kid in the house LOL.

Congratulations! I am so excited for you and you were the perfect person to pick! They are so lucky to have you on their team and I look forward to all your creations. What a great company to design for. Have fun!
Enjoy your new bundle of furry joy. I can remember the sleepless nights and the surprise attacks;) I "only" have 6 now and love every one of them. Our newest is 1 year old so he is sleeping through the night..(wink). Is this what it comes to when the kids leave home? We just rescue more furbabies?
By the way, can you please send over some of your "cleaning up the area before starting a new project" vibes as I need some really bad! I cannot walk into my studio right now as I keep designing and never clean up inbetween ;) Janet in NC
