Secret Crafter DT Card and My Exciting News!!!!


Here is my DT card for this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. This weeks theme has been set by the lovely Jane and the challenge is "Favourite Colour". This was not as easy as it first sound. Whats my favourite colour? Well in the world of crafting, I love them all so I lay some sheets of Bazzill out on the table and went with what appealed to me most. PURPLE, and below is the result. I haven't made that many shaped cards before but been trying to use my Cricut a bit more so using my "Storybook" cartridge cut out a few sized matts and layered them up. Punched 2 holes with my Cropodile and tied with lilac ribbon. the stamp is RAM and have coloured with Copics. I've edged one matt with a silver encore inkpad and another has been randomly stamped with a P/Imp stamp. I used the blender pen quite alot on this image, just trying different things out. I've still to add a sentiment but not sure what its for so will put on at a later date. 

This card also fits in with some other challenges, Spoonful of Sugar which is Gems. I have put 15 on!!!. Artygirlz, stamping (and their last challenge -boohoo) and Creative Card Crew - No Patterned Paper.
************************
And now my exciting news - I have been picked for the new DESIGN TEAM over at the Cupcake Craft Challenge. Wow, think there were 56 applications and lucky old me got picked. Good excuse to make more cards and new supplies will always come in handy LOL. Dont start till April but cant wait and am as pleased as punch! So on that note I'd like to thank so many of you for being regulars to my blog. To think back as to what I was making a year or so ago is ghastly, Peel offs, Marvy Le Plumes and all those kits. How times have changed and all for the better. Thankyou for taking the time to read my post and please do try and join us with this weeks Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Have a fab weekend, will post again tomorrow.
