Hello!! Hello!!!

I tell you, yesterday was a c-r-a-z-y day for me. It was pure chaos at work...I ended up leaving 1.5 hours later than usual..figures when I want to get all this crafting & blurfing done. I also received a text from my older brother. Unfortunately, he was in a car accident...his BMW was totalled BUT he is okay...thank goodness...good grief.

But, I also have some GOOD news too...I am thrilled to tell you that I've been asked to join the
Jacksonbelle Embellishments Design Team!

I'm soooo excited to be part of such a magnificent team! Lookie at the other new Jacksonbelle Rockstars:

We will be joining these familiar Rockstars:

My term officially starts in January but I wanted to get a jump start on all the FUN!!!!!

Anything goes...Since Christmas is right around the corner, make a project using any product from the Jacksonbelle store!

For this project I decided to use the Jacksonbelle Tuesday sketch challenge from December 15th:

I used the sketch as a template for a pocket card to house a giftie card! Who can resist Cosmo Cricket Early Bird...it is such happy paper!!!! The Barnes & Noble gift card fits in there perfectly. The pocket card base is 4 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide. I stitched completely around the card...it actually is holding down the pocket and the band...lol. Talk about easy smeasy...I can see using this sketch a TON!

out these gals from the Jacksonbelle DT for some super inspiration for today's Tuesday Challenge!!!!

We hope that you will join us in the fun!!!
