And now I'd like to introduce our newest illustrator and new product line!!! 
Michele Roos from MicheleRDesigns has joined our team!!!
Welcome aboard Michele!!! We're so excited to be working with you!
Michele designs patterned paper for card making and she's extremely talented!  I've admired her work for some time, and some of our design team members have been using her digital papers for quit a while before we brought her on board with us. 
Michele's Bio:
I live on the west coast of Ireland in a place called Co Kerry where I live
with my very understanding Hubby, 3 children (2 boys & 1 girl) 2 cats and a dog. I've been crafting for most of life - whether it's cross-stitching, knitting, crocheting but for the past 8 years now I've been card making. I always loved my papers especially the floral designs and I hated cutting into them (I know it's crazy) as I didn't want to run out of my favourite. So one day I started playing about on my computer with creating some designs and I liked how they turned out. And as the saying goes the rest is history.
~Michele~
Michele has been hard at work designing exclusive 6 x 6 patterned paper packs just for our store Treasured Times. These Paper Packs contain 24 sheets of single sided paper. Each pack contains 8 different designs, 3 of each design. These come in a see through resealable cellophane bag with hang tab. 
Here's the first exclusive paper pack called:

The designs have been printed on #65 Lb card stock, so very nice quality and perfect for card making!

YNS Blog Hop! WOOT

Hey Peeps!  Guess who gets to Guest Design for Your Next Stamp!  YES!!!  MEEEE!!!!!  I am SUPER STOKED!!!!!  I have SO MISSED YNS's SUPER Cute images and working for the SUPER SWEET Karen!!!!!



This month we are IN LOVE!  tee hee!  YEP!  It's VALENTINES people!!!!!  I am using the UBER cute Cupid set from Your Next Stamp called Love Struck!!!!

For my first card I repeatedly stamped the I LOVE YOU sentiment on my card, matted on black paper and attached it to the card base.  I then stamped the heart dude on a smaller piece of white, colored with copics and then mounted it on a black mat also.  The heart was then covered in Stella Wink in clear.  Some Prima Say it in Crystal hearts were added and viola!  DONE!


My second card uses some retired SU DP and the image was colored on a white base with Copics and three little candy hearts stamped and colored and it says "Be Mine Sugar Lips Wink Wink" hahahahaha LOVE !!!!! 
 The 3rd and final project I have for you uses the Bachelor Rose **snicker** I stamped it onto a tag and attached it to a tube full of chocolate candies to match the rose color!

It was SO FUN making these projects to play along with Your Next Stamp!  PLEASE make sure you hop and BUY!!!!!  Karen works SO HARD to keep creating these WAY CUTE IMAGES!!!!!  I'd LOVE to see YNS projects in blog land!!!!

Kraftin Kimmie Guest DT Try Out

Hey Peeps!  Kimmie from Kraftin Kimmie has opened up a challenge for a Guest DT spot!  I had a BLAST during my time last month!  I'm trying again! ;)  LOVE Kraftin Kimmies!!!!

Today I am using the set You're So Cool!from Cheryl Algers.  I stamped Lexi then cut a mask for the end of the tree and added Lucas.  This is a seriously oversized card, LOL, 6 x 5 1/2 but it was FUN to color.  OK, I *might* have even added a few GO DUCKS parts in there.... it's CIVIL WAR DAY BABY!!!!!

My designer paper is from Stampin Up and the snowflake piece is from Lawn Fawn.  So stickles added to parts of the tree and the ground of Lexi's coat add to the razzmatazz of the diamond dust paper at the bottom!


ETA: I am going to add Fernanda Flamenco in to the mix also!  I DO adore this image....




I also wanted to share with you my sketch card.  it's for Kraftin Kimmie challenge #258.  I used Dashing Dancers by Annie Rodrigue and my DP is from Carta Bella-Well Traveled!  her dress is FULL of challenging folds.... LOVE IT!!!





OK that's it for me!  Go and play along!  It's SUPER FUN and you don't need Kraftin Kimmie stamps to enter the Guest DT challenge either! YAY!
