BIG NEWS!!! And a challenge!

Last week after a very long day at work, I came home to a very exciting email! I had been invited to become part of the Design Team for the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog! I did give a little squeal! It has been so hard not to tell anyone, but with this week's new challenge all the new DT members are also being announced!

My first challenge with this fabulous DT is Challenge #104 Chocolate. This week's challenge is sponsored by Freshly Brewed Designs.

Heather, the super sweet and very talented owner, is offering 3 digi stamps of your choice from her store
and this yummy candy!
