Can You Believe It??

I am just so excited to have been chosen as Gina's Guest Designer for this month! Back in February I saw her post about guest designer spots, and decided to give it a try. Never having submitted anything for a "designer" position before, I was nervous! I wrapped up my cards, gave my package a hug (you should have seen the look on my husbands face), and sent them on their way to Gina.



Well, Imagine my surprise when I got the call from her! I was screaming and jumping up and down with total delight! I was so EXCITED!!!! And I had to keep this a secret since February....That was a tough one....but I did it!!!


To Celebrate this occasion, some Blog Booty is in order!!!



These are the cards I created as this months Guest Designer for Gina The originals are on their way to her, but I recreated the set to give to one lucky viewer here.

All you have to do is leave a comment on this post by midnight Sunday June the 10th (Eastern Time) and I will pick and announce the winner on Monday! I will also be throwing in some other goodies into the package as well!!


It was such an honor and pleasure to have been chosen as Gina's Guest Designer for June!! She is just the sweetest Gal with some awesome ideas. I am really glad to have had the opportunity to speak with her. I told my husband that I want to move to Wisconsin!! (I'm sure you can guess his response heehee)


Thank You so much Gina!!
