Vera Bradley inspired Clean and Simple


The Clean and Simple challenge for this week over on Splitcoast is to create a card inspired from the Vera Bradley site. Well, I didn't need to go there since I just LOVE my diaper bag that is from Vera's line. :) I have no idea the color name, but I know that these colors of turquoise, chocolate, and celery are definitely in it! I just happened to pick up some quilting quarters a couple weeks back with the intention to make some fabric flowers and this challenge lent itself to a great opportunity to use it. I've also been going through some old Stampin' Up! stamps and I'm determined to use them again...it's been so long. The leaves are from a retired Sell a Bration set a few years back called Best Blossoms. Still a great set!


Aside from the fabric, this card is SUO!

Now onto some other news.

My time on the Shimmerz design team has ended, and while I am sad to go, I look so very forward to seeing what the new team members do with such a great product! If you are interested in applying to the team, be sure to visit their blog HERE! The ladies on the team are so wonderful, so I would definitely recommend trying out.

One of the cards in my recent posts has been accepted to be published in Paper Crafts Magazine!!! Let me just first say...I have NEVER submitted before and actually had decided 2 days before the deadline that I would make something. Well, I was able to make 2 cards...submitted those and a couple days later found out that they are wanting to use 1 of them!! So, if you are like me and have always had the desire to be published, yet the hesitation to do so, JUST DO IT!!! It can happen to you!! I tell you, I've been on Cloud 9 since finding out. :)

And finally, if you are a commenter (you should be!!! j/k!!) you may have noticed that I had to turn on word verification. I apologize about that, but I just had to do it. The spammers have discovered my blog and were hitting it hardcore. I'll leave it on for a while and take it off in a bit and see if they've moved on.

Ok, I think that's it for now! Sorry for the great wall of text, lol!

Have a great week and thanks for getting, "in stamping mode."
