DT Has Been Announced

In my previous post I announced that I had made a DT and had to wait for the official announcement to be made, well..........................without further ad0 I'm thrilled and honored to announce that I have been chosen as one of the 17 Card DT members at Am I A Scrap Addict!!!!

The blog owner, Deanne, is a talented sketch artist who is also on sketch DT's for a couple sites (don't quote me on the number) along with running Sisterhood of Scrap with her two real sisters!!! In addition to being a crazy woman by having 17 card DT members she has 13 LO DT members!!! That is 30 girls in all!!! We rec'd our initial sketch to work on so it is ready for the unveiling of her new DT's work on the 1st of September and wow, did it make me put my thinking cap on!!! I am actually working on my 2nd card from the sketch because I can not decide if I like the 1st one or not.....LOL. I will send her both and let her decide!!!

If you get a chance stop by both sites. You will find cool and fun challenges along with great sketches being posted!!!

I did a little updating on my blog today. If you will notice on the sidebar that all the blinkies now correctly link to the sites they represent instead of my photobucket. I learned a long time ago how to do this, I forgot how to do this, to learn how to do it again and yes, forget again!!! So this time I posted it in the forums over at Just Scrappin' (go ahead, try it out by clicking on the JS blinkie) in hopes that when I need a refresher I won't have to look so hard!!!

Speaking of JS, have you came by lately???? We have lots of challenges going on right now for some yummy prizes donated by our sponsor Pink Cat Studio Stamps along with prizes that Cristal, the owner of the site, and a couple of our members have donated for challenges they have posted. What are you waiting for??? We have friends, fun and scrapping going on at all times of the day over there with NO DRAMA!!! Yeah, you read it right, we are drama free mama's (as my darling friend Cherrie would say) over there and we are darn PROUD of it!!!

I think I forgot to mention that I was featured on a blog a week or so ago as a Newly Discovered Blog. Stamping When I Can featured me, Cait and several of my other blogging buddies on the 3rd of August. I can tell you one thing, my blog traffic really picked up after she posted this!!!

As always, thanks for stopping by!!! I see my blog counter is moving up a little quicker these days so make sure you leave me a message letting me know you were here - I love seeing all the states and countries pop up!!!!

Happy Scrappin'!!!

ropergirl3 said...

ok girlie, have you moved and gotten set up yet or what??? I know the kiddos are starting school and you are moving and doing school yourself but sheessh....we need some KarenB please!!!


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
