Some Sweet news!

Hello!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend thus far! :)

Today I've got some extra special Sweet November news to share so I'm just gonna jump right into it... the fabulous miss Rachel is joining the magical miss Traci as a full-time SN Gal! I'm thrilled to have Rach coming back to play with all of the characters of Sweet November Land on a monthly basis! Not only will she be creating amazing cards for the releases but the ever-so-wonderful and technologically advanced Rach has also made a new Sweet November Facebook page that she will be overseeing! Yep, she was determined to finally pull me and SN into the 21st century despite my sad reliance on a dial-up internet connection (hey, rural living has its drawbacks) and I am loving everything that she has done. On the SN page you'll be able to view the newest releases, see card samples from both myself and all my peeps and maybe even a sneak peek every now and then... wink, wink! And if you are on Facebook we would love to see you upload your own SN creations too! How's that for some serious 21st century networking? Shhhhhh... just don't tell Rach that I'm still sans cellphone and managing just fine, LOL! ;)

In honor of our big Facebook announcement I just had to use a digi version of Pearl Tidepool so I could blow it up and have a big, beautiful face gracing today's card. I decided to keep all of the drama on the image itself with her fun pink hair and bright blue eyes and kept the card base pretty soft and muted. Though I gotta say that I have been saving this cool scrap of paper for years and finally had an idea worthy of putting it to use... so proud of myself, LOL!
And check out who just had to over see my picture taking process... looks like Oreo has given this card his seal of approval too. ;)
Thanks for stopping by!
