Great News and Cards from Friends

Hi Everyone,

guess what?????

I have GREAT news and I am just SOOO excited - a while back Beatrice Neumeister from Katzelkraft asked me if I want to be on her DT. That was a no-brainer for me - of course I said YES - who wouldn't?!!!
And yesterday I got my first DT package, squeal!!!!! Honestly I had trouble deciding which stamp to use first - want to use them all, LOL! And I surely will! Soon!!!!

I started out with this Pug - his name is Booly. What a face! You gotta love him! The sentiment is from the set English Quotes - they are all great! You can see the set below.

 I stamped Booly with Versafine ink and colored him with Inktense pencils. Stamped the sentiment on cork and heat embossed it. Added white Sharpie accents. I then die cut the bottom border with a CUTplorations die.

I hope you love him as much as I do!

Now onto other good news - I just got 3 cards from my blogging friends - the first one is from Coni from Which Craft? - she also used Katzelkraft - I think I might be responsible for her owning those fabulous rats. And I don't feel at all bad about this - I think everybody need to own those rats......I envy her penmanship. I wouldn't buy stamps if I could write like that! 

The second card is from Bozena from ArtCardBox - you gotta love the Polish mail - she send it out for me to get it on Easter - it just arrived. But the best thing - the Christmas card arrived exactly on Easter! Such an adorable little dragon! I think those really are dragon eggs, not Easter eggs and note that they are golden and therefore extra special!

And the third card that arrived totally unexpected is from Verna from VA's Creative Clutter. She recently celebrated her 70th birthday and I send her a card for it. Never expected to get one back, so what a joy! Such a beautiful card! LOVE the background and that lacy butterfly!

Thank you all, Coni, Bozena and Verna - you are such amazing friends! So glad to have "met" you in blog land - perhaps one day in real life - that would be so much fun!

Happy Stamping!!!!

Hello, Cornelia and CONGRATULATIONS on being asked to join the Kastlekraft team!! Your card with this adorable little dog is precious.
I love their stamps, especially the animal ones, I just got the rats set in the mail and I love it, I have Les Cats Russes and the Less Furieux, I also have the one with the adorable doggies, Les Chiens.
I have a "few" others on my wish list but I must pace myself, LOL!!
Again, CONGRATULATIONS, I can't wait to see what you create with the rest of your goodies.
Maria Rodriguez.

Who else would they pick but you. You're an amazing card artist...or just plain artist and they're lucky to get you. I congratulate you for the DT assignment and them for recognizing talent when they see it. That pug proves it. The expression on his adorable face is priceless and you've enhanced it immensely. Thank a bunch for the shout out, you little enabler, you.

Hi Cornelia!
What a great message! Congratulations and a little jealousy ... But with your talent and untamed creativity this invitation to DT should not be anybody's surprise. Beautiful card like any card :-) And what a beautiful rat! Amazing creations !!
Did your Easter card finally come to you? I am very happy :-))
