Daydream Designs & Raise The Bar

This darling little card was made using Diane Noble's Daydream Designs new Snow Babies Color Set II and the coordinating Love Me True Digi Papers, and together it was SO easy to make a cute card.  All the sweet images in Diane's shop Daydream Designs are not only GREAT values for the money, but they also each contain SEVERAL darling images in them, and are SO versatile.  The sentiment I used was one of MANY from the darling Snow Baby Sentiment Set.  Anyone who knows me knows that I would never be part of a Design Team, or promote products that I don't really believe in, or that aren't sold by truly good people.  Diane has been SUCH a blessing to me from the day I met her, through Word Art Wednesday, and since that day - I have grown to love and respect her for the person she is.  First and foremost, a committed Christian, a wife and mother, a family person, a crafter, a friend, and let me assure you - an honest business woman.  Diane's digis are a tremendous value for your money, and can be used on SO many projects. Check out her beautiful Scripture Bundle if you really want to treat yourself to some awesome digis.  You simply WON'T be disappointed with your purchases, or with Diane.  She is truly one in a million, and a true gift from God in my life.  I am so honored to be part of her "Dream Team" at Daydream Designs.
This card was created using a sketch for this week's challenge at Raise The Bar Challenge Blog where I was asked to be a "Guest Bar Tender".  Me, the girl who doesn't touch alchohol, I'm a "Bar Tender" this week.  LOL  -  Thanks for inviting me to join you, Joni, and the Raise The Bar Design Team.  You are all most welcome to stop by and play along in their challenge.  They would love to have you.   I'm definitely entering since, after all, I followed the sketch.
