Exciting News and a Peek!

Hello friends! In case you missed the announcement last weekend, Sparkle will soon be opening Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps! If you haven't already checked out some of the new images, be sure to stop by  to see some of her sneak peeks. She's been giving away prizes all week, too!

I am SO excited for her as I know this has been a dream of hers for awhile now! I have followed Sparkle for several years now (first as a lurker, then eventually as a cyber friend.. :) ), and I am honored that she has asked me to be on her design team! The store will officially open on July 10 with a Grand Opening Blog Hop. She will be releasing 8 fabulous images, including the one below.

I just love this sweet image of Cocktail Emily! But, don't let her innocent look fool you.. if you'll notice, her drink is bigger than she is! I colored her with Copic markers and decided to make her drink into an appletini. I paired her with some coordinating paper by The Girls' Paperie.

Today is the day that Sparkle announced her design team! You will want to check out all the details on the Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps blog! I'm honored to be designing along side these wonderfully talented ladies:
