This is it! My first project as a 3 Girl Jam design team member!

If you are looking for the Friends With Flair post and chance to win blog candy, click here, or just scroll down.

It's official.  I've made the design team.  And, I couldn't be happier!  If you haven't taken time to explore the 3 Girl Jam store, please do.  You'll find some real treasures there.  And, if you were lucky enough to get in on yesterday's 5 hour, 500 likes, 50% off sale, woohoo for you.  If you didn't get in on the sale, I did, and plan to have a giveaway with some ribbon.  More on that later...

First, the reason you came today.  My 3 Girl Jam introduction project.  I wanted my project to be something that would reflect the way I felt about making this design team, something that would state the way I felt in an artistic way.  So, here it is:

That just about covers it.  That's how I feel about how lucky I am to be doing this.  I've been so excited ever since I got the news.  Can't wait to get designing, and having fun with the wonderful 3 Girl Jam products.  I used London blue ribbon from the wine & jewels bundle to make the bow on the card. 

The card measures 4 inches by 9 1/4 inches, and fits in a standard business envelopes. Other supplies used were Echo Park Springtime cardstock, my Silhouette Cameo to cut out the card, Unity Stamp Co's July 2011 Kit of the Month, a honeycomb background stamp bt Market Street Stamps, twine from Close To My Heart's harvest collection, Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Close To My Heart My Legacy Writer black pens, Copic markers.

And now more about that giveaway I mentioned earlier.  My one year blogoversary is coming up.  It's been such an exciting year for me.  I had a card published in the Cricut Circle's Online Magazine, I've entered challenges and won a few, I've made many friends and connections around the globe, and I'm now on 2 design teams.  All because of a blog.  I never would have dreamt all this would have happened in one year when I began this journey.  To celebrate, I've invited some of the friends I've made through scrapbooking and my blog to hop with me.  The dates are Mar 1-3.  Please come and participate in "Julie's Blogoversary Blog Hop".  There will be a variety of prizes up for grabs -- including some gorgeous, can't-wait-to-play-with 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon. It's gonna be fun!

For the current giveaway I have, follow my blog, leave a comment on this post and you are eligible.  To increase your chances to win, also comment on yesterday's post and come back for Monday's post.

Thanks for stopping by to view my FIRST 3 Girl Jam DT project!
