To cheer us up on this chilly day.... and exciting news!!!
Well, as I saw the weather forecast last night, I thought we needed a bit of cheering up with some bright colours and lovely flowers.... so I dug out one of my fav new stamps from Stamping Bella. Let me introduce you to Patsy Pixie.... isn't she just so cute? I've coloured her (unusually for me) with my prismacolour pencils... and I really enjoyed the change from my markers. I thought the flowers needed bright colouring... and ooooh of course, some glitter! LOL! Sooooo I coloured her, then gave her some grass to stand on with the pencils... (if anyone wants me to do a video tut of the grass, I'm more than happy to do so - just let me know). She needed some shadowing to give her depth, so I chose blue this time - just to give the impression of a nice summery sky behind her.
Now..... my exciting news!! Although I was very sad that the blog I was on the DT for (Die Cut Dreams) was closing... I'm honoured to have been chosen for another FANTASTIC Design Team - the ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE BLOG and I'm thrilled to bits!! I've known for a few days but haven't been able to say anything till it was all announced today.... hmmmmm and I'm not good at keeping things to myself - as my blogging buddies know too well! hehe! So I can't wait to get stuck in and join the lovely and very talented ladies there who have already made me feel very welcome. There are still a couple of days left of the current challenge which is 'To the One I Love - Challenge 59' - so get on over there and enter your Valentine's cards.... I can't believe the amount of entries we've had already!
Sooooo now I need to get on with creating my first card for them..... exciting times for me!
Big Hugs to all and Happy Crafting
