Exciting News

Good Afternoon Crafty Friends and Followers

Today I am sharing some exciting news with you all.  In November Holly the owner of Squigglefly challenge blog contacted me to ask if I would be interested in joining their design team.  Of course my answer was YES!!!!

Today I am showcasing one of my first Squigglefly images which you can purchase here.  She is called Carousel Ride by Alicia Blake.

We have 2 teams and I am on Rhonda's Team and my first DT entry will be on Monday 7th January 2013.  I hope to see a few of my crafting and blogging friends taking part.

Base card is 8 x 8 scalloped which I have matted silver mirri card onto.
The second layer matted a card from my crafty stash which is pale blues, lemon and glitter.
I have then taken a heart shape and distressed it with PanPastel Dairylade Yellow.
I have printed off the Carousel Ride onto Stampography card and cut out using Spellbinder Scalloped Oval die.
I have coloured the image with Copic Ciao Pens and Spica Glitter pens. I have distressed the edges with PanPastel Phthalo Blue.  I have added a lemon bow to the top of the Carousel pole.
To finish off I have added an Organza blue bow and added flowers.  The stick pin was a present from my good blogging friend Lindsay Jolly.

Thank you for Stopping by Today
Big Hugs xxxxx
