I'm So Happy!

Hi Friends,
This special Tuesday post is to share some more exciting news - I have a 6 month DT position with Crafty Sentiments Designs and their weekly challenge blog.  I saw their DT call in the Splitcoast Stampers Forum a few weeks ago and applied.  I am so happy to have the opportunity to color up their fun images and work with the ladies of Team B.  Surprisingly, there is another Cathy, spelled with a C on Team A, so lucky me, I get a star after my name on the challenge blog - Cathy*!  You'll see a post from me every other Tuesday.

Onto this week's challenge . . . the theme is "Inspired by a Song".  I saw this Lollipop Dream image called, Petal Fairy and knew right away the song would be Pharrell WIlliam's hit, "Happy"!  It's become my new favorite song.  I always feel happy when I hear it!  I've been trying to use colors other than pink in my cards lately, so when I settled on yellow flower petals, I didn't consider the idea they might look like potato chips! It works either way though!

You have to stop by the store to see all of the cute things Crafty Sentiments Designs offers, as well as their month new releases.  I can't wait to get my hands on some of these guys from June's release of "One For the Boyz" collection!

There's also a new stamp release on May 22nd!  Love that little boy with the flower pot!
