Toot, Toot....

Chugga Chugga Big Red Car!! Any Wiggle's fan's out there?!?! All my kids loved them but the OBSESSION truly began with my two year old. He has a Wiggle's blanket, Wiggle's clothes, Wiggle's Movies and they play ALL DAY LONG!!! This title made me think of this song, I couldn't help it...SORRY!!

Anyway, the Toot Toot isn't about the Wiggles it's some exciting news that I get to share with you! I was asked to be a guest designer for Sketches {by tamara} and today is my day so run over there and check it out.....BUT WAIT...there's more. She had an unexpected opening on her Recipe's Design Team and asked me if I would join. I was excited but honestly, I had no idea what a recipe challenge was...LOL!!! I hurried to her blog to check it out and OMG!!! I don't know how I've missed this every week. The recipe designer's takes turns picking three "ingredients" that have to be included on your card (or scrapbook layout). What fun!!! Once I knew what a recipe challenge was I IMMEDIATELY said yes. I applied to be on her sketches design team but didn't make it. This sounds just as fun and I'm excited to be joining in.

Okay so you want to see some cards now????

This card is my guest design card:
I used sketch #59 which is my favorite to date. I just love this sketch!!

So now you want to see my first recipe challenge card???? Sorry, you have to wait until Tuesday! That's the day the new challenges are posted. Don't miss it, I did for way to long!! It's a great challenge and it's been added to my sidebar underneath my favorite challenges!!

Have a great rest of the weekend and thanks for stopping by!!
