Random Card, Fabby News, a Sneek Peek and an Award!!

Grab a cuppa this is a bit of a long one.

First I'll start with a random card, I made it for something else but it didn't fit in the end and I can't find any of my regular challenges for it to fit in with other than SCSC but I've already entered a card into that challenge, so Im just going to share it with you anyway.

Used one of my favourite SN stamps 'Sweet n Sassy'. Coloured her with copics, blender and promarkers. Inked the edges with brown ink and mounted onto green cardstock from scraps stash. Papers are K & Co, I cut scalloped ovals from one of the papers using nesties, and placed in the corners. Green organza ribbon from Ribbon Box. Finished with some card candy in the corners. Card candy and scalloped base card both from Craftwork Cards.

Now for my fabby news....

I recieved an email this morning asking if I'd like to become an official designer for Making Handmade Cards. I've been a guest designer for a couple of months, so this is such fabby news. And I've already got my new blinkie...lol.

I'm really excited about this new opportunity and there are some new exciting things to come over on MHC, so I will keep you posted as and when these develop. But in the mean time you may want to sign-up for their newsletter where you'll get freebies, tips and the latest news on new releases, click here to sign-up.

Before January this year I'd never dreamed of being on a DT or ever thought my crafting was good enough, but I'm so proud to now be a member of a few DT's, I have been so lucky and feel so honoured.

Talking of DT's here's a little sneek peek of my creation for tomorrow's new challenge over on Funky Fairys.

There's still some time to take part in the current challenge which is a sketch by me, would love to see your creations.


And finally......(stop cheering!!!..lol)

I've recieved a lovely award from Poppy, thank you xxx
