Happy Friday!

I wanted to share, what I think to be, some fun stuff today! First up are my cards.... I made these the other night for the current Hero Arts challenge. I just love that peace ornament... I think it is way cool!!

Next up is some news...  I found out that I am going to be able to be on the Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge DT... totally pumped about that!! I love Paper Smooches! I feel very blessed to be on 2 great DT's. I stayed away from them for a long time... well... they may have stayed away from me too but... hopefully you know what I mean. I didn't apply to any/many! I was worried about the time commitment. Not to mention the rejection factor! Now that Carver is in school... I am just excited at the idea of taking on more 'work'... if you can call it that! Will work for stamps... that is my motto! LOL!

Okay... so back to the cards! :) I always feel kind of funny about posting about stuff like that! I am excited and want to record it for me... and show my excitement for the people who gave me these opportunities but... I always worry about coming off like I am bragging! Hopefully you know me well enough to know that ... that is not like me! :) I think all of us who put ourselves out there on a blog... for all to see... feel like that from time to time. Unless... you just like to brag and don't feel bad about it! :)

Okay... so really now.... back to the cards! :) I am going to post each card individually below... pretty much just because I took an individual shot too. They all look alike except for the colors but I am going to post them anyway!

Sorry... I am chatty! I am excited about my news and I have a friend coming over to craft for a while after Carver goes to bed. That definitely doesn't happen often enough!

Thanks for visiting and enduring my long post! :) Peace and Love!!
