What has the DT been up to??

Here we are half way through the week and we have a dose of inspiration for you to get those creative juices flowing! We thought you'd like to see what our Design Team has been up to already this week! If these creations don't inspire -- I don't know what will! :-)

Our first stop is to see the lovely Faith Hofrichter. I am sure I have never seen a blue poppy - but isn't this beautiful? See? All flowers don't have to show their true colors. I think this one using the Poppy Patch set is just a beauty!
These next two cards have gone to the birds! Sets featuring those fine feathered friends seemed to be ones a couple of our designers picked up this week!

First up is Christine Okken, who, with a little watercolor turned this birdie from the Home Tweet Home set into a cardinal with such a fabulous pop of color! I just love the mix of decorative paper, the sponged edges and the dose of paper piercing!

Laura Fredrickson picked up the Love Nest set for her creation this week! Isn't this card just darling? I love the soft colors she picked, the flourished corner and how those birds are popped up to make them really stick out! Another plus? If you like what Laura did with this set -- it's still on sale through February for 25% off!

Latisha Yoast created a darling pocket card using one of our newest sets - Birthday Celebrations! I just love everything about this card- from the bold graphic decorative paper to the pop of pink and the way she situated those cute little cupcakes! Too cute! Here's the card in the pocket...

And, here it is out! Pretty fab!

And... yours truly took some time this week to make some ATCs for the ATC swap going on over in the Flourishes Forum at SCS! This is only the second time in my life that I have made ATCs so--- be kind please! :-) I used the Spring Ephemerals set along with some Basic Grey and Memory Box papers. There is still time to sign up for the swap so -- be sure to check out the thread HERE.

You might notice one of our gals is missing this week-- Yep -- Miss Cindy Lawrence is running amok all over CHA checking out the newest papers and products! We told her to keep her eyes peeled for fabulous things we might "need" to stock in the store.

If you liked today's focus on our designers -- we hope you come back and see what we have in store! These ladies have a few fun things up their sleeves that they hope to share with YOU!! So, stay tuned!

Enjoy the rest of your week!
