...Some More Big News From Me

This has been such a crazy and exciting week for me! I am so proud and honored to let you all know that I have been asked to be on the Fall Gardener Design Team for The Greeting Farm! I have been a fan of TGF since they were Pink Poison, and I love their cutesy and fun stamp sets. I am also ecstatic to be working with three other talented designers during this three month assignment that begins October 1st, and continues until December 31st:

I wanted to share the card that I created for my TGF design team submission that had to be CIRCUS THEMED...so what do you think?

This image is actually from the Wild Sprout Series of stamps, and she is called Bree...I turned her into a clown! I drew her a new mouth, added red clown cheeks, turned her envelope into a folded cloth, added a big flower to her hat, and created a springy flower arrangement to pop out of her hand. I also added a computer-generated sentiment that says, "Just Clownin' Around". I do NOT like clowns in real life...they totally freak me out, so this card was a definitely a stretch for me! LOL!

That's it for me today! Thanks for stopping by, and for celebrating my wonderful news with me! I will see you all back here tomorrow with a Mojo Monday Sketch card, and a SCS Sketch Card. Until then...
Supplies
Stamps: WS Bree, Pretty Hat (The Greeting Farm)
Papers: Turquoise, Red, Yellow, Green, Watercolor, Cosmo Cricket DP
