The BIG time!

I have been keeping a SECRET, and now I can finally let everyone know! 
I have been asked to be on my very FIRST Creative Team by
Pink Persimmon!
It all started when I saw a card featuring the set "Little Red Wagon" on Splitcoaststampers.  I KNEW immediately that the set had to be MINE!  After receiving the set in the mail, I started to stamp with it and instantly fell in love...

I started following their blog, and when I saw the call for Creative Team applications, I decided to apply!  Imagine my surprise and glee when I got a call from Darcy McNairy, co-owner of Pink Persimmon with her sister, Judi Anderson.  I jumped up and down, and then JUMPED over to my computer to email YESSSSS!

I am very blessed to be on a Creative Team with some VERY experienced (FAMOUS!) stampers in the industry...Linda Beeson, Kimberly Crawford, Julie Detlef, Samantha Sibbet, and Kristie Larsen.  Please be sure to visit their blogs to be WOWED by some fabulous creativity!
So how about a little contest to celebrate this very special FIRST occasion for me?!  Leave a comment below by Saturday, September 19th (8:00 AM, PST) telling me which stamp set at Pink Persimmon is your favorite?  I will choose a name randomly from the comments, and that person will win a free stamp set!
 (EEK, my first BLOG CANDY, too!)
I can't wait to show you all some fun creations in the coming months, and am so excited to meet many new friends through this wonderful opportunity!  Thank you Darcy and Judi!
