Easter and an Announcement

Hi, everyone!
I hope you are enjoying the beginning of the weekend!
I took some time to work on a card sketch, from the From the Heart Stamps Blog.

Here's the sketch I worked with.

They offer a choice of using the sketch, or using the tWist. The tWist this week is dry embossing, which I ended up not doing. I used the sketch, and that was good for me, today! :)

The awesome design team for From the heart Stamps recently had a blog hop, and I was an image winner for leaving my comment on one of their blogs along the way. This is made with the image I won, called Easter Egg Tulips. So pretty for an Easter card!

I did my usual Print and Cut with my Silhouette Portrait machine. I also cut a bunny shape, and the small egg shape. The bunny was cut with Kraft, and I used some ink and a sponge applicator to add some darker brown on him, as well as my journaling pen to add a face. The egg is lightly inked around the edges, and daubed a bit to make it look a bit less bright white. I wish I could tell you where my papers come from. They were pieces in my stash, and since I don't remember buying them, I think they were sent to my in a swap. :)

Before I go, I also have an announcement to make: I have been selected to serve as a Guest Designer for From the Heart Stamps in June and July! How exciting! I am really looking forward to that, and hope that you will follow along on my journey there when the time comes! In the meantime, I will continue using some of their images for some sketch challenges and monthly challenges. If you haven't seen their monthly challenge before, be sure to check it out: by using the Stamp of the Month image, which you can pick up in store if you don't already have it, you will automatically be sent the next months Stamp of the Month! I think that is so great, don't you?!

Hope to see you on their site playing along with their fun challenges!
Happy Crafting!
