Hi to my lovely blogging friends...

Well..... time to break my exciting news...(drum roll)....  my  news is......... (second drum roll - just to build the right amount of tension).... I've been asked by the lovely Melyssa to join the Design Team at Whimsie Doodles and become a Doodlelicous Diva!!!  YAYYY!!  Did I have to think about it???? NOOOOO... I jumped at the chance as I've loved Melyssa's fabulous images since I first started to use digital!  So I'm doing a happy dance here..  I expect you can hear the ground shake from where you are!! LOL!

So for my first DT card, I decided to use Santa Express - available HERE amongst other fabulous Christmas images. I did enjoy the colouring and fussy cutting... and did a little decoupage too to make his bits (!) stand out...  then I wrote the sentiment on the tag by hand...
