Today I have one more thing in my life to add to my gratitude list. I was asked to join a design team and after careful consideration to ensure that I would be able to keep the committment I would be making, I SAID YES! So come February, I will be designing for the AWESOME Canadian company--Scribbles Designs owned by the super, fabulously talented, Sandy Sommerfeld. I am truly honoured and so thankful to be chosen as one of the design team members. I only hope that I do Sandy justice.
Today I want to show you the card I created using one of Sandy's freebies. You can currently find it and information on the Design Team call over on Sandy's blog, Scribbles By Sandy or on the new Scribbles Designs Challenge Blog. If you are interested in applying for a team member position, there is still time left. Just head on over when you are done here and check out the details.
So, in this edition of "Thursdays Are For Giving Thanks", my focus is on expressing gratitude for this amazing opportunity. It is especially meaningful because this will be my first Design Team position. Wish me luck! I hope you will be joining us when the Scribbles Challenge Blog goes live. Become a follower so you won't miss any of the action!
I decided to go with a clean and simple look for this card. Sandy's sunflower design is so beautiful, I wanted to make sure it was the star of the show. Copics include: Y13, Y15, Y17, E21, E23 and E25 (sunflower); G20, G29, YG61, YG63, YG67 (leaves and stems). The sentiment, which fits perfectly, is from Hannalie over on Desert Diva. The inside is stamped with a clear rubber stamp from the Stampendous Encouraging Words set using a Studio-G ink. By leaving the inside void of any text, the card can be used for inspiration, dealing with difficulty or even for encouraging someone's dreams or expressing pride.
I'm afraid the colour quality of my scans aren't the greatest. That is something else on my list of things to do--learn how to touch up pics for colour restoration. Unfortunately, it is rather low on my priority list at the moment and will now have to wait until the new year to explore.
