My New 'Assignment' and a Sketch

First.....my announcement. I was so honored to be asked to be a part of SCS's Product Review Team for 2010. Our first assignment involved using Flower Soft Ultra Fine. I was a bit nervous as I generally avoid little 'pieces' of things like glitter as they usually end up in my already poor peepers, but I plugged on and actually enjoyed using this. It is finer than the regular Flower Soft, but basically is used in the same manner.

I actually made a few cards, but this is the one I will share today. This SU set is one of my all time favorite sets and reminds me of gazing at the ocean. One of the things we used to do on Easter afternoon was to take a ride to New London in our Easter outfits and take a walk on the boardwalk at Ocean Beach Park. (We needed to after having our traditional Polish breakfast of borscht, kielbasa, babka, rye bread, ham, desserts, and, of course, chocolate bunnies!!!)

I am very excited to see what other new products we will be 'testing' for you this year!!! There are two teams, so it'll be a while before I get to 'work' again on the Product Review team.
Second......this is my card for the Sketch Challenge on SCS. I was so happy to see the large image panel on the sketch as I had just recently received this Penny Black stamp in the mail with an order from PBStamps and really wanted to put ink to the rubbah!!! Aren't these friends just the sweetest little things??? They make me smile and think of my friends.

How fun that you get to test 'stuff' Joanne! I've had mixed feelings with the flower soft - I've tried it a couple of times and think I have to work with it more to get where I want to be!! your sample card looks great with it on the flowers! and your sketch card is just adorable with the two little!
