Been AWOL, a card and some fab news!!!

Hi folks!

I can't believe I haven't posted a card since last Friday!! Life certainly got in the way over the weekend although I'm not complaining because family should come first after all!!! My job is also incredibly busy at the minute and I am getting home exhausted and unable to find my mojo....... must be my age, lol!!!

Anyway, this is a card I made a couple of weeks ago for my matey Jo's daughter - I completely forgot to show it on here because I was waiting for it to arrive in the post for her birthday!

I have some fab news which I've been bursting to tell and I always find it hard to keep things under wraps.......... few, at last I can tell you all that I made it onto the Design Team for The Pixie Cottage!!! Woohoooooooo!!! What wonderful stamps I will be working with as the designers are truly talented ladies. And what a wonderful team Michele has put together, I can't wait to get to know everyone better ;o) Of course you may have already seen some of the designs which are now available, as the wonderful Janny has been hard at work creating some amazing cards...... do hop over for a look won't you. The stamps are available to buy here and I just know that you'll be itching to get your hands on some. Overseas shipping is available at a very reasonable rate so hurry before stocks sell out!! Thank you so much for choosing me Michele, I can't wait to get started!!

Card ingredients:
Papers: Basic Grey
Image: Sugar Nellie
Flowers: Prima
Leaves: Sizzix
Colouring: Polys and Koh Pencils

Thanks so much for stopping by, catch you in a while......

Oh Tara, huge congratulations, I'm so happy for you!! What a secret that must have been to keep :D, you must have been fit to burst. Can't wait to see all your lovely makes with the new stamps. Your card today is beautiful, the perfect card for a lovely little girl! Your manga girlie is so beautifully coloured and I absolutely love this colour scheme! I tried to get the leaves and flowers die at the weekend but they didn't have it anywhere, how rude of them all ROFL, will try elsewhere. I was so sad that you couldn't make AP but I hope we'll meet at another show, I know we will eventually. Hope you're having a relaxing evening and that work calms down for you a bit very soon. Hugs, Chris xx
