I'm SO excited....... and I just can't hide it... (Join in if you know the song!)


Hi

Got you all singing??  Hope so!!

The reason for my excitement is that I've been asked to do a Guest Design spot for the totally fabulous Totally Gorjuss Challenge Blog!!  It took me all of a nano-second to say yes...  LOL!



For this week, the challenge theme is "K.I.S.S"....  so a simple card was required.... and you know how difficult they can be.. LOL!  But I battled on....  using some of my nice new stash...  and you can see the result.. hope you like!

Card Recipe:
  • White and red cardstock
  • Stamping Up Textured Impressions Embossing Folder - Adorning Accents
  • L'il Inkers Of The Heart Dies
  • Red Twine
  • PC generated sentiment
  • Tiny red gem
Pop over to the challenge blog for more details and to check out my super talented teamies' creations...  then I can't wait to see what KISS cards you come up with!  And our generous sponsor this week is Crafter's Companion... so you could be in with a chance of winning £10 to spend in their online store!!

Another reason for me to be very excited is that I have now  reached the 200 followers mark...  YESSSS!!! A big welcome to my new followers - hope you like what you see!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting......  ohh and stay safe and warm in this chilly weather!!

  6. Wow I love your card Christine. Congrats on your DT spot, you deserve it, your creations are lovely. Hope you keep warm and safe from all that "white stuff". We've not seen more than a few flakes that melt on contact in Torquay (yet). It's been bad in Plymouth and Exeter yesterday, but we have a different climate in the English Riviera!!
    Still I'm not complaining, I don't like it when it turns to ice.
    Stay safe honey.
