March 30, 2014 - NEWS and new card

Hello all my friends.  I have the most exciting new for you all.  Well it is exciting to me and I think you will understand why.   In fact, I am "over the moon excited".  :-)   Back in December, I had a post about my being invited to be a Design Team member with My-Besties Aussie DT group.  I was a little apprehensive about accepting, because I had seen all the wonderful creations coming out of the DT's and since  I feel we are all out worst critics, so I wasn't sure about accepting.  After much discusion and questions, I said yes I would give it a try.  Well I have absolutely enjoyed being on the Aussie Bestie DT and so enjoyed making new friends.  I am having a wonderful time being on that DT and hope that I will be there for a long long time.  LOL   With that being said.....guess what.......a few weeks ago I was invited to be on Sherri Baldy's Original My Besties DT and since I knew how much fun I had on the Aussie team, I didn't even hesitate this time.  LOL  I said yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss!!!!  That got a chuckle for sure.  I am very excited about making more new friends and sharing my creations with all of you for the Besties DT.


  Our challenge this months was "SPRING FLING".   Now I don't know about you, but I am really ready for Spring to make its appearance and then hang around for a while.  LOL  I cannot believe it is so stinkin cold and I live in the South!!!!!


Here is my card for the Spring Fling Challenge: 
I absolutely love this My Bestie Image.  She is called RoseBud and how appropriate is that. To find this image click  HERE  When I first started thinking of what I was going to do for this challenge, I thought ok think spring and yellow and green came to me.  As I was coloring and came to her flowers, I thought well lets put a little splash of pink in the mixture too.  So that is what I did and I am very pleased with the yellow, green and pink theme to celebrate spring, if it will ever get here.
