Let them eat cake and an annoucement

So the challenge this week was to include some type of pastry and either the sketch or project Tuesday from stamps and Smiles.  I decided on the sketch and a few other challenges listed below.  I haven't made a circle card in awhile and forgot how much fun they can be.  Making round cards are fast and easy with nestabilities.  While making this card I realized that I have lost my smallest scallop circle nestie.  The last time I lost one I found it in the vacuum cleaners bag!  I now need to go look and see if this one is there and I don't look forward to it with all the dust!  I need a better way to store them.

So I have some exciting news (for me at least!) Today was my last day as a guest designer for Pile It On, which was sad for me.  The good news is....yesterday I was asked to join the Design Team Wahoo am I excited!!  I will be doing the challenges every other week.  I had a blast being a guest designer so I am looking forward to continuing on with them.

I would also like to say I am sorry I haven't been posting this last week, I have had a horrible case of missing mojo!!! I am in high hopes that the excitement of the DT position and the release this week from Gina K Designs will help to pull me out of it.  So enough of my rambling on, I think I will see if I can stamp something!!!  Thank you for stopping by.
