Back from my Scottish travels and some exciting news.........

I arrived back today from my lovely few days away to Scotland visiting my mum, step-dad and brother.  It was lovely to see my mum again, time just seems so to fly by from when I last saw her in April.  We spent the day shopping yesterday and taking a drive up through the hills, which can't have been far off being classed as  Couldn't believe when travelling back today that there had actually been some snow since Wednesday as the tops of the hills near Penrith were white with snow, was expecting to maybe of seen that in Scotland not   Anyway I'm back now and hope to be getting some more cards on here to show you over the next couple of days, after being a little slack the last week or two.

I also have some fabulous news to share with you.  As many of you were aware I have been very lucky to have been a guest designer for Pollycraft for last few months, well I am even more lucky and so very excited to share with you that Paula and the DT girls have asked myself and two other of my fellow GD's (Becky and Michele) to stay on and become fully fledged DT's...woohoo!!!  If you never realised before I have always been one of Pollycraft's biggest fans and it was through joining in with the challenges that I made a wonderful friend, Emma.  I am so thrilled as you can imagine and I couldn't wait to get back and shout out this news to all.  Congratulation also to Becky and Michele and thank you to Paula and the DT, I loves you all xxx.

I have one card to share with you, which isn't for any challenge, it's just a card for fun using one of the gorgeous new Pollycraft images that were released this week and hey it's not a Christmas card.

The image is 'Felicity About Town' from the new Codi & Felicity collection available now from Pollycraft.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Massive congratulations to you Joanne, I'm thrilled to bits for you. Glad you had such a nice time in Scotland - not telling the kiddies that you have seen snow though or we will be heading that way tomorrow, they are hoping and praying for a White Christmas. Congratulations to the two other DT members aswell :o)

Congratulations, well done on becoming part of their team.

I miss having proper snowy winters down here in Worcestershire, we had lots of lovely snow up home in Northumberland which would lie for days, but here it just comes one day and is gone the next.
