Special Announcement!

Good morning, Friends! Today I get to tell you something very exciting! Connie and Mary have asked me to be a guest designer for their Occasions Edition 2012!!! I had so much fun doing their Holiday Edition that I jumped on this chance to do another round! Today's card is giving you just a little peek of what I will be using for my project! I also want to make sure that you know that Connie and Mary are offering early bird pricing of $29.95! The only way you will get to see my special project will be to subscribe to the Create Occasions Edition 2012. I will be featured during week 3 which runs January 29 - February 4. I hope that you will hurry over to Create with Connie and Mary and sign up for this edition! I promise, you will NOT be sorry! The designers come up with the most amazing projects! And I am so excited to share mine!

My card starts off with a card base of Whisper White. Then I cut down another piece of Whisper White and adhered it to piece of Pear Pizzazz and popped it up onto the card base. Then I attached a piece of designer paper from the Twitterpated designer paper pack with one end flagged. Then I used Labels framelits die and cut a label from Whisper White card stock. I stamped the image from Bordering on Romance in black StazOn inside the label and then again on a scrap piece of Whisper White. I watercolored both images with an aqua painter and Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red and Island Indigo ink pads. I cut out the cluster of three flowers from the scrap piece and popped them up on the stamped image on the label. The label is then popped up on the card. I added three pearls to the flower centers. Then I stamped the greeting from Happiest Birthday Wishes in black StazOn on a strip of Whisper White and flagged one end. This is glued to the label. 

So don't delay! Hurry to the Create with Connie and Mary site and get yourself signed up for the Create Occasions Edition 2012! I look forward to seeing you there! Thanks for stopping by and sharing in my excitement! Have a super day!
