Here is my card that showcases this new image. I had such fun with dies on this card. This new paper line which you will read about below is by far some of the most beautiful paper I have ever worked with. I won't spoil the surprise but let me say "Thank You" To the artist behind the scenes designing this amazing paper to work with **wink wink**
I've used a lot of dies by Noor! in this project.

 A sweet hidden message!


And now I'd like to introduce our newest illustrator and new product line!!! 
Michele Roos from MicheleRDesigns has joined our team!!!
Welcome aboard Michele!!! We're so excited to be working with you!
Michele designs patterned paper for card making and she's extremely talented!  I've admired her work for some time, and some of our design team members have been using her digital papers for quit a while before we brought her on board with us. 
Michele's Bio:
I live on the west coast of Ireland in a place called Co Kerry where I live
with my very understanding Hubby, 3 children (2 boys & 1 girl) 2 cats and a dog. I've been crafting for most of life - whether it's cross-stitching, knitting, crocheting but for the past 8 years now I've been card making. I always loved my papers especially the floral designs and I hated cutting into them (I know it's crazy) as I didn't want to run out of my favourite. So one day I started playing about on my computer with creating some designs and I liked how they turned out. And as the saying goes the rest is history.
Michele has been hard at work designing exclusive 6 x 6 patterned paper packs just for our store Treasured Times. These Paper Packs contain 24 sheets of single sided paper. Each pack contains 8 different designs, 3 of each design. These come in a see through resealable cellophane bag with hang tab. 
Here's the first exclusive paper pack called:
Aren't these beautiful vintage papers! I love them! 
Thank you so much Michele for creating such beautiful paper for us!!!
The designs have been printed on #65 Lb card stock, so very nice quality and perfect for card making!
