Happy card and happy news

Here is a cheerful,happy card with bright colors perfect for the summer...and it matches my mood this morning. It's a bright sunny day here and I'm in a happy mood for a few reasons. First, the Red Wings won last night...3 more wins and they'll have the Stanley Cup! I made this card using the Simple Friendship stamp set. I love all the images in this set...the butterfly is perfect and the swirl and flower images make wonderful backgrounds. I used a color combo of Pumpkin Pie, Pink Passion, Pixie Pink & Summer Sun...colors found on my favorite beach towel. I haven't gone to the beach yet this year, but while cleaning my linen closet a few days ago I thought the color combo would make a great card. See...even when doing a boring task like cleaning you can get inspired!

I mentioned being in a happy mood for a few reasons...besides being a beautiful day, and the Red Wings winning last night, one of the other reasons I'm happy is that I have some exciting news that I want to share.
One of my favorite challenge blogs has selected me as a new member of their design team! Stamp Something has different challenges each week starting on Friday. Sometimes they do sketch challenges, sometimes color or theme challenges, but they are always fun and a great way to get inspired. Besides that, a lucky winner is selected each week for blog candy! I hope you'll check in on Friday's and play along!

Today is the last day in May...hard to believe! That also means it is the last day to take advantage of the Buy 3 get 1 FREE paper sale from Stampin' Up! Just hop on over to my demo website and hit the "Shop Now" button to get your designer papers while they are still available. Tomorrow, the Last Chance List will be posted. That means that mostly likely, the majority of all the current papers will be retiring, along with many stamp sets and accessories. I'm anxious to see what is on the list...
