Make A Wish.....And My News!

Good Afternoon!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Friday. I know I am (especially after my post office trip!). The card and my news are both tied together!

I am thrilled  to announce that I will be the In House Designer for a new blog .. Fargocat Designs.

Fargocat Designs is owned by Deborah Lecreux in Nova Scotia and she has asked me to share some inspiring ideas and projects for her new online store which is opening May 1st. I just received a package in the mail containing some amazing products to design with.  I won't share all the stuff that she will be carrying today but I can tell you she will be carrying the "Ciao" Copic Markers! The price on them will be $3.75 (tax in). They are the ones I've been using on all my projects for the last eight months and love them. I know she has a good selection (I made recommendations on which ones to order first based on color combos I generally use together).  While we were attending the CHA show we found a few new items that neither of us had played with before, but will get a chance to soon.

House Mouse is one of the lines of stamps Deborah will carry and they will be in stock for a May 1st opening.  Which brings me to today's post! In future I will try and share what color of markers I used on the projects. I didn't write it down when I did this card so I can't remember for sure! Pink and browns are always a good color combo. I used circles to make the tabs at the top and bottom edges of the card. A little glitter applied to the icing to make it look more yummy!

I'm looking forward to designing for Fargocat Designs and continuing to share my enthusiasm and love  for paper crafting with you.

Keep checking both my blog and Fargocat Designs for information regarding the grand opening of "Fargocat Shops". There will be some "Blog Candy" up for grabs soon so be sure to check back for details on how to enter.

Enjoy your week-end & I'll see you soon!
