Some Exciting News and A BESTIE book card

Good morning every one
I'm so excited today as I´ve got an exciting news (a lot of) to share with you. A few days back I was asked to join at My Besties Design Team.

Thinking into account that the last (and first) time someone offered me to join in a design team; then I saying NO THANKS and later regretting it LATE, (among other things because I was terrified) and since then every day I have repented of having made the wrong decision, ……. this time JUST receive the offer my answer was immediately YES THANKS for the offer (even without knowing the terms); I´m sure that I don´t return to never make the same mistake again.

Many thanks Sherri for asking and bring me this magnific opportunity. I´m very honoured to be part of an amazing team like this.

Well… I´m thrilled to be on board with my new teamies ... very fabulous ladies with her magnificent works.

So today Welcome to look into my blog to see what I made with a Sherri Baldie´s Little Dimple IMG935 image.
She has new designs like new winter Besties and some NEW DIMPLES images that are a little bit different from BESTIES, but equally adorables!

Also Sherry has announced few days ago one BIG SECRET:
You can now buy the My Besties figurine, with a portion of the money raised from the sale
going to Breast Cancer research and awareness

Congratulations Sherri, HUGE NEWS!!!

Well after all this information (sorry), here is my book card for the theme “Anything but a card”. It´s my first one and it has been so fun to make it!; To make it I followed a lot of tutorials searching internet.

The close up of the image. I had used Sherri Baldie´s Little Dimple IMG935 image printed in heavy White Canson Bristol cardstock (365 gm) and colored with Copic Sketch markers.
The edges are sewn with the sewing machine. I have inked all the edges with walnut stain ink pad. Clay corners are made my own which I have inked with walnut stain too.
Flowers from IAR and WOC; berries from Magnolia.

Outside complete:

I´ll hope give you lots of inspiration along the way for using Serri´s New little Dimples images.
