The Secrets out!!

Hi blog friends

Well I just couldn't wait a second longer to tell my secret!  I'm sooo excited.

 I just got my 1st DT team place with Fab'n'Funky challenges, I only started blogging this year - my new years resolution, even though I've been following craft blgs for ages now, it was just taking the plunge - and it makes the blogging much more fun too.   I've enjoyed it so much I've already met such a lot of lovely people and it gives me a reason to make my cards. 

Being on the Fab -Fab'n'Funky design team means I've got even more excuse to make more cards - with lots of inspiration thrown in. The girls have all been so welcoming and helpful to a newbie like me - special big hugs to Wendy for helping me get my 1st DT card posted when I was having problems - you're a star - if I had an award I'd give it to you x

Congrats to the other newbie DT members Sheila and Judit - I'm sure we'll all muddle along together girls!   I think I know how Meryl Streep felt at the Oscars - this is my Oscar speech - and I'd better shut up before I get boo'd off  lol.

So here it is my 1st ever DT card, as soon as I saw the theme for the week I knew I had the perfect stamp. The theme is leap into action - in honour of leap year and sponsored by Joanna Sheen.   The prize is £10 to spend in store and I'm sure you can all come up with some creative ideas of leaping things, animals, people - anything to celebrate our once-in-four-years day. So hop on over to the challenge blog and do your worst - or should that be best!!
