Good Morning Everyone! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend! I know...I don't usually post on the weekend and almost never ever on a Sunday but I was SO excited when Regina said we would be doing a give away for The Cutting Cafe to welcome the new Design Team members...I just couldn't wait to post this! I had a hard time deciding which of her fabulous files to use but since I have been pressed for time lately and had to do a birthday card for our dear friend Eduardo, I chose one of my MANY favorites...Up Up In The Sky Wishes. This is an awesome set...it feature over 120 images and sentiment from kites to hot air balloons to regular balloons...the set also includes some colored images. It is the same set I used back in May, when the card I made was a favorite pick of the week on SCS! To be eligible to win this set all you have to do is leave a comment here on my blog before 11:59 PM (EDT) Thursday, September 1st. The winner will be chosen using random.org and announced the morning of Friday, September 2nd. While I appreciate those of you that in the past have left comments by signing my guestbook, there is NO way I can put your name into the drawing! You MUST leave a comment here on my blog! Regina will be posting the other Design Team Members projects on The Cutting Cafe Blog Wednesday August 31st so be sure to stop by to see all of the fabulous projects and who will be participating in the Blog Hop...they too will be doing a Give Away on their blogs!

This posting brings me much sadness. My term with The Cutting Cafe is up so it will be the last posting as a member of the Design Team. I've been with Regina on and off since August of 2009. Regina has been very good to me and she has always made me feel appreciated for the job I have done for her. I truly feel blessed to have been a part of The Cutting Cafe's Design Team. To say that I will miss her is a HUGE understatement! 

That's it for today...don't forget to leave a comment to be eligible to win this set...I'll be back later in the week with a few more cards that I have been working on...til then, enjoy your weekend...I'll see you next time!

WooHoo, Kelly! What a fabulous card! I loved the card you created back in May with this set, and I love this even more! It's just amazes me how you take the same image and create another card with a completely different feel...such versatility and talent! All the wonderful details you added to this card make this card such a treasure!
