Some exciting news and another Peeker card!

Happy late Wednesday my friends! I have had some exciting news for a bit now but this is the first chance I have had to post it, I am officially one of the designers for SCACD where you can buy not only the latest stuff out there but stamps that are designed especially for Susana and her store. And one of the latest ones is the next in the series of "Peekers".


This is Happy Mail Peeker and can be bought as an individual stamp or there is a great deal available if you purchase all 4 in this series. I have colored her with copics, paper is Buttercup by Lilybee and I have also used the Orchard Tree frame with matching Debutante frame and some liquid pearls in Ocean blue on my sentiment. And just a tip, don't color your image, think what an AWESOME idea to use the tree frame and glue it down with quick setting glue then realize, hmmm would have looked even better with a sky background! Do the sky first! On this image I took my copics and added some shading around the leaves and a bit in the background but definitely would have looked better with a sponged sky. Oh well, live and learn!

Congrats Amanda, I'm so happy for you in your newest venture & they are so lucky to have you design for them. I can remember back when you were a "Newbie" & just look how far you've come in a short time. This little girl makes me miss my daughters so much as I know they always miss the mail I used to send them. Now it's easier & faster with e-mail but thanks to you & this wonderful card I think I'll just hop over there & buy this image cuz I know it would bring a smile to both their faces to get some "real mail" from me.
Hugs, Janie

Congratulations Amanda - Another great company you'll be designing for! And more fun stamps you'll be getting me addicted too - lol! I already went over & checked out some of their stuff after your guest posting. Their stuff is adorable & of course I found some I'm just going to have to have. Better start budgeting some funds for those now!

Adorable image in your card & you did such a great job with her. Bright, cherry, and fun card!

Congrats again Amanda, you're going to be a great addition to their team!

Congrats Amanda. I took a peek at their store front. It looks nice. They actually have a stamp I have been looking for. The Elizabeth bell image of the little girl with the watermelon slice. I think she is so cute. Well, your card is so adorable, I love the DP. I like your hint of blue for the sky. Hugs
