An Exciting Announcement-and BLOG CANDY

Today I'm super excited to announce that Alison at StretchNBubbles has asked me to be a designer for her awesome digi images! I know you've all heard me rave about Alison's images and if you go check out her blog, you'll agree that they are fabulous and fun to work with. So is Alison! Here's a little bit about her so you can get to know the woman behind these adorable images:
I have to tell you. When I first asked Lori to be on my Digi Stamp Design Team, I was so nervous. I hate rejection, and I was stalking the computer all day. I am so lucky, and blessed that she said YES! She has been such a joy to work with. About me? Where to start..
I have a wonderful husband who I love and cherish. HE is AMAZING!!! We have two beautiful children. Stretch who is 9 years old and Bubbles who is 15 months old… that’s where I got my blog name.
Stretch N’ Bubbles. The names came from my dad.. Poppie who gives each of the grandchildren “magic names” after they are born. so those are their magic names and we love them...

I have been crafting all my life. Ever since I can remember I have made/created things.I really started “Scrapbooking/Card making” in 1996 when my dear friend Lisa Bearnson introduced to her new magazine Creating Keepsakes.. after that I was HOOKED!.. I do both scrapbooking and card making.. I enjoy each for different but similar reasons. I love to create, design, and do anything with my hands.. I have never taken any kind of art class (though I should have) but I have just started my love for Digi Stamps. I have found I have a special place in my heart for drawing, and if I can share them in the process. I am happy to do that..
I have been published in many magazines, worked for Creating Keepsakes as a designer for products sold on QVC (still do occasionally), and won many contests. I am truly excited to be starting this new adventure with Lori on my Digi Stamp design team. She is so talented, creative, and such a sweet person. She has inspired me in so many ways. I have had such a fun time getting to know her. I feel like we have been kindred spirit friends our whole lives.

I hope to inspire you with some of my designs. I can’t wait to meet and be inspired by each and every one of you.

I've made lots of cards with Alison's images but this is my first as an official part of her team. It's funny, it has all my favorite cardmaking ingredients: a digital image, colored with Copics, embossing and of course a bow (tied with my Bow Easy!) I promise not all the cards I make with Alison's images will use this formula! :) I'm really looking forward to working with Alison. She's super sweet and amazingly talented. I hope you'll love her work as much as I do. When you head over to check out Alison's images you can also find out how to win her AMAZING blog candy.
