I think I may be dreaming...if so, DON'T wake me!

I received an email with these words... honestly, I am not making this up...I totally did a cut/paste:

"...I have a little question to ask you, Michele!  First, I want to thank you for being an AMAZING guest designer with us for the challenge this week but I'd like to offer you a spot on our design team..."
 
Kur-thunk = my jaw hitting the floor! On the CAS(E) This Sketch design team?  Honestly, I am so excited and amazed to be joining this team of excellence, I haven't a clue how to express it. Well... I guess I'll just do what I most times do - make a card! =]
 
 
Chrissy's cool sketch brought me to my stash for a package of yet-to-be-used, die-cut paper I found years ago.  Tell me, could this be more perfect for the inspiration?:
 
A simple double layer of the die-cut
and a little SSS sentiment embossed in Hero Arts white.
 
I do hope you'll play along with CAS(E) This Sketch #106 the other team members have such wonderful inspiration for you!
 
Thank you, thank you, thank you, Chrissy for having faith in me. . . and to all those on this inspiring team - I will never be able to fill Lesley's fabulous shoes, but you can be sure that I will totally enjoy my time in the sand-box with all of you !!
