Introducing the 7th Six Chick!

The Limelight Six Chicks and I are so thrilled to introduce to you our first ever 7th Six Chick! I know what you are thinking....THAT'S MATHEMATICALLY IMPOSSIBLE!! (Sorry, I just couldn't resist...) For the month of November, the super sweet, amazingly talented JESSICA RUSSELL will be joining us on our design team! We expect great things from Jessica! :)

I'm so excited to be the 7th Six Chick for November!! I love to read, quilt, write poetry, hike, and stamp (obviously). I have been stamping for about 14 years. I can't really describe my style, but I know it is mine. I love creating cards and gifts for my friends and family. I enjoy the creative process, and usually don't think my projects are complete until I add some ribbon or some bling, possibly both! I have to say that I have NEVER enjoyed creating cards and projects as much as I do right now. Using new stamps and supplies has infused me with a creative energy and enthusiasm that I have been missing for some time! Of course, part of that enthusiasm is coming from my new baby boy, Isaac, who is a much-longed for blessing! He will be a year old on November 9th! I stamp during one of his nap times every day! My husband and I have been married for nearly 8 years. I am a firm believer that we are capable of shaping our lives to be exactly the way we want. That is one reason why I recently took a leave of absence from my teaching job to embark on a new an exciting career as a stay at home mom and stamper!

Here are a few of my favorite cards of Jessica's.... Just a FEW! It's so hard to pick!

Do you remember our Limelight World Card Making Day games and, more importantly, GIVEAWAYS?? Jessica not only participated by posting the random items I asked for, but she MADE A CARD that FIT THE THEME! How cool is that?? Here the card she made when I asked to see your breakfast foods:

This is Jessica's super fabulous card for this week's Limelight Sketch challenge:

Please join me in welcoming Jessica!
