BIG NEWS! :) (aka Anything Is Possible Card)





Hi all, Hope you are having a great day so far. I am so excited to share today that I have been asked to become part of The Cat Pack Design Team! When I started blogging going on 3 years ago now, I so admired the work of the Cat Pack. I also fell in love with all these gorgeous stamps they were using! I thought if I could hone my skills to be even close to these talented women, that I really would have come a long way as an artist. When I got Alma's email, I almost fell over. I never thought that I would be good enough to actually *join* such an amazing group of artists (not to mention a very awesome group of women). It was..... probably the happiest moment I've had since I began this creative journey of sharing my paper art. I am so proud to join this group and to help represent my favorite stamp company, The Cat's Pajamas.



I think we all have those things that we assume will "never" happen. We are sure we will never be good enough, talented enough, attractive enough, kind enough, strong enough, smart enough and so on.... I have to say that getting that email last week helped shift my perception. I want to always be a student of life, continually striving to be better than I am today. And there's nowhere to go but up from wherever you are right now. It doesn't matter the journey, we are always capable of improving and getting better. It doesn't matter what disappointments we have encountered, what losses we have faced. I always have a choice to move forward and make myself better. I always have the option to grow from where I was yesterday.












So, today's card is hopefully an inspiring one to you, too. I LOVE the sentiment on this set "Anything is possible." I used "Soar" cling rubber stamp set, as well as the CutUps: "Star rosette" and "holiday toppers" all from The Cat's Pajamas. I also used some October Afternoon "Rocket Age" papers and sticker.




So, I look forward to sharing with you, dear readers, some awesome product and fun techniques. Biggest hugs and I will "see" you back here very soon. :)

xo, Noelle
