New Whimsy and Stars Studio DT

Happy Thursday... and Happy first day of September!!  (Well, in a couple hours it will be!)  *Ü*  I've got exciting news on top of exciting news!!  *Ü*  First of all, I was recently asked by Mabelle of Whimsy and Stars Studio if I'd like to join her Fall/Winter Design Team and I jumped right on board!  I first saw her digis over at CDAC and fell in love with them!  Thank you so much Mabelle for this opportunity to work with your fabby digis and work alongside you and the rest of the very talented team for these next few months (my favorite months of the year)! *Ü*

Secondly... we are gearing up for a Super Cute FALL RELEASE coming on September 6th!!
So today we get to share some SNEAK PEEKS of what's to come on the 6th, and let me tell you... FALL is in the air... and I am sure you will FALL in love with these cuties like I did  *Ü*   Ok, nuff cheese for today??  Heehee... let's get on with my first card!

I’ve created this center step card using Alex Pumpkin.
These cards are so fun to make... adds a bit of surprise to your recipient... and they fold flat for mailing in envies! 
I colored my image with Copics.  The papers I used were from my Key Ingredients kit months ago and I added machine stitching on all my panels.  I couldn't resist adding the fence border... just brought the scene together *Ü*
Be sure to stop by the Whimsy and Stars Studio Blog to see more sneaks today.  I will have more cuteness to share on Sept. 6th so hope you'll come back to see!!  

If you're on Facebook, and you're a member of Whimsy and Stars Studio Group, you can grab FREEBIES every now and then (we've had 2 freebies in the last couple weeks!) and share your cards! 

Feel free to visit the rest of the team for details on their creations!
