Nature's Postage

Happy Saturday!  And it is a very happy one for me.  I'm waiting on my friend Deb to arrive and off we will go on our trip to 2 local scrapbook stores. 

But, it's also a happy day because I get to share with you that I have been selected as a "Friends of Speedy TV" design team member!  Speedy TV was started recently by Faith Hofrichter.  She is also the owner of Mark's Finest Papers.  Speedy TV is named after Mark's Finest Papers official mascot "Speedy the Cat".   It is a Ning site and I would like to invite you to join us!  We would love to have you join us for weekly challenges every Monday.   This monday kicks off the first challenge.

I need friends ... so don't forget to put in a friend request on my page HERE.
And to kick things off ....  I'm going to do a drawing and give away a prize to one of my lucky friends!

There are 10 other Friends of Speedy TV DT members excited today as well, and if you get a chance, stop by and say hello to Debbie (our fearless leader), Bonnie, Brenda, Fran, DJ, Janine, Karen B., Karen W., Kitty, and Toni.

Today's project was designed using a really cute set called "Nature's Postage".  The image was colored with Lyra Watercolor Crayons.  I have 3 other cards I designed using watercolors and I will be sharing step by step photo tutorials starting this Sunday and for the next 2 Sundays.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and don't forget to hop over to Speedy TV and put in your friend request on my page!
