Mum's The Word

Well, not exactly. 'Cause I did tell me Mum about this.

Today I get to share a secret I have been keeping since OCTOBER.  Can you believe how long I've had to keep my mouth shut?  Torture I tell ya!  Today though the "cat's out of the bag" and we are going to CELEBRATE!

  Back in October I was picked to be part of a Design Team for Paper Works Co.  They are a really fun company based out of Canada.  I have been busy creating a few things using some of the really fun stuff that Peggy sent to me.  Today and tomorrow my creations will be featured over on THE BLOG!  Please go take a peak and then check out the online store.  My card for today was inspired by their website.  It is super fun and I had a blast making it.  Let's just say it made me "sparkle" ALL DAY:)

  Here's a sneak peak at what you will see on the blog.   Edited:  The Time difference in Canada means my post there won't be up until around NOON.  Oops!  Now I know for next time.  Take a look then ok?

Edited AGAIN:  Apparently there is a little trouble with the post due to an update that was installed.  Such is the story of my life..hee hee.  Big Debut......NOT!  LOL  Scroll down to see my card.  Hopefully at some point the post will be up and you can read a bit about me and the supplies I used.  IT'S UP NOW....YEAH!!!!

I'd like to share a few of the details of this company.  One of the things that impressed me was how easily I could maneuver through the online store.  I love how organized it is.  Paper Works Co. also offers a monthly card kit at a phenomenal price of only $11.99.  Paper Works Co. is home to their own line of cute stamps.  They also sell Little Loud Stamps and Basic Grey.  This was my first time using Prism paper for coloring with Copics and I'm in love!  It's actually the first time I have EVER used Prism papers.  Love them!  One other thing I'd like to share is that Peggy and the girls all seem to be so much fun.  You can check out their sketch challenge on Sundays.  I hope you will choose to play along.  There will be something to see on the blog each day over there to inspire you.

Because I am so excited for this fun adventure and was blessed enough to get some free stuff I would like to "share the wealth" so to speak.  So I am offering up some blog candy.

  Up for grabs:

2 cuttlebug embossing folders
1 stamp set
1 package flowers
1 box jeweled brads
Birthday Sprinkle brads
Assorted Googlie eyes, brads and buttons
A sampling of Polar White Flower Soft

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post by Jan 8th.  That should give everyone enough time after the BLUR of the holidays.  I would also love it if you would leave me a link to your blog so that I may visit you.  That's it!

Make sure you check back here tomorrow to see my other card featured over at PaperWorks Co.  

I will be taking a few days off to go see family for the Holidays.  I do have an organizational tip for storing glitter and other small things next week.  It is a VERY SILLY post.  One that should have you at least smiling by the time to get to the end.  So check back next week to be educated AND entertained!
