My Big News: Cup Cards To Go DT

I'm very excited to announce that I've joined the Cup Cards To Go design team. YAY! it's been hard to keep it a secret the past while as I'm over-the-moon to be working with some dear friends again.

Sonda, the owner, and I have been friends for about seven or eight years. We met online through a card kit club called Self-Addressed and we even had the pleasure of sharing a room on a girls get-away a few years back. Remember this girls:

{Wow. I was a lot fatter!}

All this is to say then when she asked, I happily agreed. Sonda is a lovely woman with a huge heart and an incredible eye for beauty and she's a runner too! - as always I'm honored to call her my friend and now I'll be adding "boss lady" to that title. *grin*

Here's a link to the lovely things said in my introduction:
Thanks, Michelle - I'll take "absolutely amazing" any day of the week. You're too kind :-)

Wanna sneak peek of what I've been doing with the upcoming kit?

June 3rd is my three year Blogversary (three years!!!) and I wanted to give something fun away. I've decided to send one of you the Cup Cards To Go June Kit. So stay tuned for more info.


In completely different news, my youngest finally installed anime studio on our computer this weekend and he made this. I thought it was cute and a very solid first project. So... here's some proud mom sharing:

Congrats on your new gig. How fun to be reunited with "old" friends!

Sonda is lucky to have you!

Your son's animé project is adorable. I like the ballet twirl/leap towards the end and that huge "smiley" grin! Great work.
