Oh happy day! It’s my favorite blogging day of the week and time for a new Sketch Challenge. I designed the card layout shown here and then asked our Rock Stars to put their own spin on it.

Just look at all the fantastic cards they created this week! I don’t call them Rock Stars for nothing! 😀

Surprise! Today we have a special Tuesday post announcement to share with you… We have a new Rock Star in our midst! Woohoo!! Please help us in welcoming Cheri Weston to the Repeat Impressions design team.

Although we have yet to meet in person, Cheri and I have been having fun getting to know each other via email for the last couple of weeks. It is interesting that our paths hadn’t crossed until now. As it turns out, we have a few stamping friends in common and we live less than an hour apart. How cool is that?! Cheri also happens to be on another DT with two of our current Rock Stars. It surely is a small world!

I asked Cheri to tell us a little about herself and this is what she had to say…

“I am grandmother to Philip 4 and Alexa 3 and I live in Central Maine. I was originally born and raised in the Adirondacks of New York State where I learned many crafts from my mother and grandmothers. I work part-time as a secretary for the local school district and fill in my non-work time with rubber stamps and paper.

While I’ve played with crafts all my life, I’ve never found one that has become such a passion as rubber stamping and paper crafts. I began this craft 4 years ago, when I thought I would like to make baby shower cards for my daughter-in-law’s baby shower. What a beginning!!! I made 50 invitations, and had a blast doing it and became totally hooked. After that I decided to take some classes in card making techniques at my local stamp store and the rest is history. I continue to develop my skill and feed my passion.

I am so thrilled to be selected as a DT member for Repeat Impressions. It is truly an honor to have the opportunity to represent a Maine rubber stamp company.”

Here is a sneak peek at one of Cheri’s creations… Check out this fabulous card she recently submitted for one of our Sketch Challenges. This card features our ever popular #708-K Rebecca stamp.

Welcome aboard Cheri! Myself and your fellow Rock Stars are so excited to have you join us. And I’m sure our readers can’t wait to see all great things you’ll be creating for us in the coming weeks. Luckily we only have to wait until tomorrow! :)

Have a great day everyone! Thanks so much for dropping by. I’ll be back tomorrow with Cheri and the rest of the gang to kick off a new Sketch Challenge. Please don’t forget to leave our newest Rock Star a little love here on your way out!
