Sweet in PInk + News !!!

Good Morning my Lovelies,  Well it's Friday and the end of my two weeks break from work, it all starts again tomorrow !!  but I have enjoyed this break, had some real time to myself, now back to earning a crust as they say. 

I wanted to show the card I made as a replacement for Simon Says Stamp Challenge.  It's a long story but suffice to say I thought I got the combination wrong in the Bingo game over there and left a comment to say I would do a replacement.  The lovely Lorraine let me know that my card was fine and that I could use a diagonal line in the game. 

As I had already completed my replacement card I thought I would still enter it.  It also falls into the theme of a few challenges this week.

Now for my NEWS!!!  sadly I've stepped down from the DT over at One Stop Crafts, not may I say an easy decision.  I've had a wonderful year with Shelley and all the girls, they are so friendly and supportive and I will miss them but I felt I needed a change.  I was in need of a boost and a change of direction. 

 I am pleased to announce that as of Today I will be joining Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog.  I am so excited!!! Of all the cards and craft I make I simply adore making Christmas Cards, I have a multitude of Christmas stamps, papers, embellies etc etc in fact enough to open a shop lol,  simply because it's my favourite season of all.  This is a double whammy for me,  I gave out and sent 65 hand made Christmas cards in December how fortunate that Marianne has given me the opportunity to make all my cards with no mad rush in Oct/Nov.   I am delighted and over the moon to be joining the other wonderfully talented ladies on the DT.  I look forward to creating with them all on next weeks challenge.

 I am Proud to be a DT Member of
