Exciting News!

Hello Everyone,

The southern part of Michigan was pummeled with snow for 12 or more hours non-stop. Because of the snow storm, the kids didn't have school and my normal routine of quiet mornings, blogging and making a card went directly out the window. Thank goodness the skies are clear and hopefully, no more snow for a while.

Getting back to my exciting news.....for the next three months... I'll be designing for Claudia And Company!


Claudia Harvey is the owner and you might be familiar with her already because she's also the owner of the online store, Die Cuts R Us. She's as sweet as can be and as you can imagine, she's very excited to have her very own rubber stamp company to compliment her online store!

Her first line of adorable rubber stamps, called "Puddle Jumpers" will be released March 1st (sneak peeks begin February 26th) and do you want to know who designed them?? The fabulously talented LORI BOYD!! In fact, it was Lori who asked me to be on Claudia's design team. I couldn't believe what I was reading at the time.... seriously. In fact, I was surprised that Lori knew that I even existed!

All week long, Claudia will be introducing the rest of the design team, and if you don't want to miss out on the excitement, I suggest you become a follower of the Claudia & Company's blog today!

I want to take a minute and thank both Claudia and Lori for the chance and for this wonderful opportunity! I CAN'T WAIT to get started!!
hugs
Risa:)
