A Little French Country Shabby Chic

Hubby and I spent a gorgeous but warm Saturday antiquing in Agoura.  The shops had quite a variety of furniture and hardware, but most noticeable was the French Country look--white, coarse linen, burlap, cut glass and crystal, lots of things painted white, weathered wood, and antique silverplate with a variety of added jewels or metal embellishments.  I came home wanting to redo my whole house in the light, fresh country colors, although I'm sure I'd add back all the color in a few months! With the day's scenery still influencing me, I created this box using stamps in the Easter Bunny collection from Oxford Impressions.  What fun!

I made Oxford Impressions Design Team!

Well, it's a little bit late to post this, but at the beginning of the year I was chosen to be on the Oxford Impressions Stamp Company's Design Team!  It was such an honor to join the group of talented artists who are regularly published in the top magazines.  My first creations were for a stamp series called London Telegraph. I'll post those pics later.  Most recently, I have been coming up with designs for the Easter Bunny collection.  I'm really happy with this first creation, which is a shaker card.  Stay tuned for more to come this weekend!
