News, News and more News :)

Hi Banana Friends! We've got lots of fun news for you today.

First I would like to introduce you to our very first 2RedBananas Guest Designer. It's Deb Felts. She has a fabulous blog and a fabulous SplitCoastStampers gallery. Her SCS name is debdeb. We're so excited that she said yes to being our first Guest Designer. She has this to say,

Hi! I’m Deb Felts, and I am so thrilled to be the very first guest designer for 2RedBananas! Having been born and raised in southwest Louisiana, joining this team of Texas and Louisiana girls and their friends seemed like the perfect fit! I first came across 2RedBananas on my friend, Jami Bova’s blog, when she announced that she would be having some of her fabulous illustrations made into stamps. As I read the names of Wendy’s and Jeanette’s blogs I couldn’t help but grin…and I couldn’t wait to read more! Words like Lagniappe and Nowhere Bayou might sound foreign to you but they’re near and dear to my heart! And sure enough, these girls are from right there in my neck of the woods! In fact, our parents are practically neighbors!

I have been a scrapper since our son, Matthew, was born. He’s almost 15 now! It wasn’t until about 3 years ago that I was introduced to stamping. Immediately I was hooked, because stamping merged my love of texture (from my sewing days) with my love for shading and tints that I learned in tole painting. The more I stamp, the more I love it!

If you love stamping and you’re looking for a good challenge, check out The Daily Dare! It’s a blog that lists card challenges by the day of the week they’re posted. This idea was one that I had been mulling over for quite a while, and after collecting bookmarks for a month or so finally the idea became a reality. It’s only about six weeks old, but its popularity is growing and I’ve heard good things about it! Hopefully it will be a valuable resource for you! I hope you’ll visit 2RedBananas, The Daily Dare, and my own blog, With a Stamp and a Song, on a regular basis! I’m looking forward to sharing my designs with you!

Please help me to welcome Deb to 2RedBananas!
