My FIRST Post for 7 Kids...

Happy February 1st, my lovelies!! I have some very exciting news to share with you today!! I've been invited to join the fabulously talented ladies on the Design Team over at 7 Kids College Fund! How cool is that?!! Soooo...this is my very first official post for the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge! Are you ready?? Me too! So let's get started!

This fortnight's challenge theme is...

Red & Pink & White!

Kinda perfect, right? Especially since it's almost Valentine's Day! So...I decided to make a crossover card for a bit of a change of pace. They're super easy and fun to make! If you'd like to make one, you can find a fun and super simple tutorial HERE.

This card features a couple of my favorite little Magnolia stamps called "Tilda with Cute Skirt" and "Loving Border" (perfect for Valentine's Day) available HERE and HERE...along with an amazing array of stamps, papers, embellies, and all sorts of crafting and art supplies at 7 Kids College Fund online store.

I decided to use some of the fun digi papers from Bearly Mine Designs HERE. I am seriously lovin' the digi thing...because they're so easy to store! hehehe! (And my craft room is still in utter'll be gorgeous soon, I swear!!)

Here's the rest of my card "recipe"...
Heart Circles (Nestabilities) available HERE
Sookwang adhesive (my fave!!) available HERE
