It started out with this picture.
It still didn't sink in, I had glanced at the picture and then started reading the rest of the message.
THANK you so much for your interest in inspired stamps and for your application to our first design team! We had a large number of applicants who were all very talented, and among them, you really stood out to us! We would like to officially WELCOME YOU TO THE inspired stamps DESIGN TEAM!!!
WHOA!!! Wait a Minute did I read that right????
I CAN"T BELIEVE IT, I made it!! I am an official member of the first Inspired Stamps Design Team!!!!!!!!!!!!
The remainder of the e-mail was general information for a Design team member and our first 2 assignments as Design Team members. The first was I had to keep this secret until today when Antoinette introduces the Design Team members on the Inspired Stamps Blog. Boy was that hard, I wanted to shout it off the roof tops, and tell everyone, but instead I was a good girl and kept it under wraps until now, I didn't even tell my mother. Our second assignment you will see next week when I post my first Official Inspired Stamps Design Team artwork by June 23.
Here is a brief description of the company - Inspired Stamps is a new clear stamp company made right here in the USA with the highest quality photopolymer materials available! We specialize in Biblical Scripture stamps, adorable colorable character stamps, sentiment stamps, and scenic stamps. Begun by a military wife, mother, and Bible Study teacher, the purpose of inspired stamps is to bring joy and encouragement to both the crafter and the recipient of the created projects through the use of God's Word and adorable additions, such as the characters and scenic views.
The Design Team is comprised of eight other very talented artists and I can't wait to see what they come up with each week.
Let me introduce the rest of the teamAmy Edwards
I am still in shock that I made the team, but am very excited to start this new adventure. I am looking forward to creating for you all and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you with my artwork.
Thanks and God Bless
