Officially a Diva!

I'm officially a Doodlelious Diva! My term on the design team for Whimsie Doodles begins today with a blog hop to meet all the Divas. If you arrived here from Min's blog, great! Otherwise you may want to start at the beginning here.

For those of you who are visiting me for the first time, welcome and I hope you'll come back. To get
to know me a little, here are 5 Doodlelicious Things About Me....
1. My first papercraft project was probably in Kindergarten and I've been crafting ever since! Seriously I think my first papercraft project was a treat bag topper that I made at a Stampin'Up party. I think we colored it with pastel chalks.

2. When I'm not papercrafting, I enjoy reading and knitting. My Kindle and yarn are always close by. I also enjoy spending time with my granddaughters. Of course we are usually doing some sort of crafts. They love to stamp!

3. My favorite Whimsie Doodles image from the new release images is Frankie's Girl. I also like the Turtletopia images. They are so cute and I love that little devil called Hottie!

4. My favorite papercrafting technique is making special fold cards. I also love coloring with Copics and embossing with the Cuttlebug.

5. My favorite embellishment is ribbon. I'm always looking for the perfect color of ribbon for a project. I love glitter too!

Here's my first official Whimsie Doodle card using my favorite of the new releases.


I made a center step card using the very cute Frankie's Girl image. It's available at the Whimsie Doodle store along with Frankie and some other fun Halloween images. I bought the sentiment last year at Michael's and didn't have a chance to use it. IMHO, it's perfect for Frankie's Girl.

Time to meet the other Divas. Hop on over to Tracy's blog and give her a warm welcome to the Whimsie Doodles family.  Then continue hopping and check out everyone's fantastic projects using this month's adorable new images and leave a little comment love along the way.  Don't forget to go back to the Whimsie Doodle blog and comment for your chance to win one of the September images! Enjoy hopping and getting to know us.
