I've got exciting news x 2!!

Hi blog friends

Was just going to tell you all my exciting news when I looked at my blogger dashboard and got some more!!  I've just been given a place on the Creative Craft Challenges DT, I'm so excited and looking forward to getting going with it.  Have a DT card due next week so that's my project for tonight.  Thanks to all the girls on the DT for really warm welcome - I feel at home already - such a lovely friendly bunch and with a few of us new girls all starting together you've probably got your work cut out lol.

My second exciting news is I just found out  I've got a top 3 card in the Sentimental Sundays challenge last week - thank you to the DT at Sentimental Sundays for  that too - todays been a good day all round.  I've even got a card made today as well so crafty things can't get much better.

I wanted to use another of my cute new Saturated Canary digis so chose this one called Dorothy -yes that's Wizard of Oz style Dorothy, I think you'll agree  she's very cute.  I decided to go all out pretty for this one - pink, ribbon, flowers, pearls and butterflies - thought I'd hold on the glitter - there's such a thing as too much ha ha.

a close up of the detail

What I did....

Stamp - Dorothy -Saturated Canary
Paper - New Arrival from Docrafts Forever Friends
Flowers - Wild Orcid crafts
Coloured with - copics and Prismacolor pencils
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Punches (corners and border,butterfly and leaves) - Martha Stewart
Pearls - Kaisercraft
Distress ink (around diecut for image) - Tim Holtz spun sugar
Pink card and seambinding ribbon - from my stash

I had a bit of a happy accident with the ribbon, I tied a double bow then cut through the wrong loop so ended up with a single bow with 3 lots of tails.  At the same time my absolute favourite Martha Stewart butterfly border punch that I use to cut out all the little butterflies totally jammed up - I managed to get one butterfly! I'll have another go with it tomorrow and try to rescue it :(

I'm entering this card for the following challenges

Dream Valley Challenges - Mothers Day/female themed creation
Delightful Challenges - Spring Colours
A gem of a challenge - Perfect pastels
Incy Wincy Designs - something old (punches)/something new(digi stamp)
Ladybug Ink challenge blog - Pink and girly (104)
Stampalot Challenge - take inspiration -inspiration came from the pretty stamp
Well that's me for today

See you tomorrow

Congrats on all your news Judith.

Your card is really pretty and it's great to see you at Stampalot, but don't see us mentioned in your post or where you took your inspiration from. You do need to do both to be eligible.

Thanks for your message Judith. Mr L does seem to be having a few problems especially with the thumbnail version, hopefully they will soon get it ironed out.
