21 & Fabulous: MPS Challenge for Design Team


Hello all and happy new year,

I'm so glad to be back and right on time.  I would have been sick if I missed this chance.  I'm not yet settled but I just can't pass up the chance to be a MPS Designer.  I, like thousands, am an admirer of Robyn.  She is just amazing, someone with 5 kids and all that energy is a hero to me.  It is wonderful watching her evolve.  I bet the almost 5 years ago Robyn never thought that a little old blog about stamping and using a little Cricut would have opened up so many opportunities.  I know, like most, we wish we had the drive and motivation to be so passionate with our desires.  Robyn is the first person you find when you buy a cricut and your hooked.  
While on the road moving from TN to CO I would use my husband's phone to get on the internet.  MPS was the first site I would go to after checking my mail.  I was so sad that I could not be a part of the challenges going on in the 12 days of Christmas and to know she was looking through for designers makes me sad.  I'm so glad I have one more chance for this first half.  This is a great opportunity and I'm so glad that Robyn looks for new and different talent. 
Thank you so much Robyn.
So, onto my card and the challenge.  The challenge is to make a card or layout using your favorite cart and her favorite colors; pink, green and brown.  You must have a blog, cricut or imagine to try out for the design team. Check it out MPS  
It is hard to pick a favorite cart with 200+ out and I only have 100, but if I had to pick one I would pick Doodlecharm.  I don't know why I just really love that cart. I didn't use, it I used 5 carts in my gypsy to make this card.   I was designing this cards in my gypsy for my husband's sister.  She just turned 21 and she is an AKA and their colors are Pink & Green, HOW PERFECT!
