We're Blooming!

I am SO excited! Today is THE day! I've been keeping a secret for a while now, and today is the day I get to share... spill the beans... open the vault... SHOUT OUT LOUD!


So, ya'll know how much I love Whipper Snapper Designs right? I mean really, you'd have to be a brand new visitor here to not know! lol Well, a few weeks ago I received an email from the fabulous Anna Wight (SweetMissDaisy) asking if I'd like to be one of the featured designers for her July/August release of the new unmounted sets she has designed for Whipper Snapper Designs!

OMGOSH! I'm sure they heard me squeal in Wisconsin!

And you know what the best part is? The July sets are titled *Blossoms & Butterflies* and *Blooming Expressions*! Is that me or what?!?!
So... without further ado, here is my first creation:





Anna took the flowers in this set (these adorable bells are just one of SEVEN different flowers) to a whole new level!



The sentiment, from the Blooming Expressions set, is one of 18! The little butterflies are also part of the Blossoms & Butterflies set. There are 6 different ones in the set, each one facing a different direction! I could create a different card from just these two sets every day for months! Actually, I've made quite a few already and I'll share them over the next few weeks! :)



Anna has links to each of the new featured designers over on her blog Sassy & Sweet. I am SO excited to see what every one has created!

It's a happy day here on Happiness Blooms!
