Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge with a Bit of News!

Have you had a wonderful break? We had a blast at my sister in law's beach house on New Year's Eve!!! We played the Wii dance game and bowling and had a ton of fun!  I have a blackmale video of my hubby and his brother doing the dance game and it is hilarious!

It time for our Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge after a few weeks break.  The wonderful sketch was done by Bev! I had a great time with this one!

I can't believe I covered up the cute Nitwits paper though!  My sweet image was sent to my for a Christmas present from my friend Tammi! How in the world did she know how much I loved these Nellie Snellen stamps at NEC, I don't know! Thank you again Tammi.  They remind me a little of the LOTV's that probably why I like them so much. Here are a few supplies I used:

MS Monarch Butterfly punch, Magnolia Swirl, Copics for the coloring 


Now for my little bit of news that I can finally share with you!  LOTV is now going to have a shop team and the sweet Jacqui asked me to be on it!!! Now, you all know how much I love my LOTV stamps, so I was more than thrilled to say "YES"! I can't wait to see what all the new year brings for this stamp company, they are just growing by leaps and bounds!!!

Well, it's time for me to run! Thank you so much for visiting me!  I hope you will check out all the other DT's work at the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge, they are an amazing group of girls!

Hugs, Dena
