Today I have some exciting news!
I have taken over the management of Fab'n'Funky Challenges from the lovely Lou!
Lou decided that she can no longer commit to the time it takes to run the blog and to stand down.
Rather than see this Fabulous challenge blog close (as so many seem to be lately)
I agreed to take over from Lou.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been getting to grips with what goes on behind the scenes of running a blog like Fab'n'Funky Challenges. I have to say "all hail" to all you lovely ladies (and men!) who do all the organising and running of all our challenge blogs - and to Lou for keeping ours going for so long - so successfully, it definitely doesn't happen by itself.
I think many of us don't appreciate just how much work goes into these things - just for fun.
Sooo - on to this week, I'm really chasing my tail trying to get all my DT cards done before I go on me hollies on Saturday - can't wait - though isn't it typical that just as I'm going away we get good weather - I feel cheated that I'll miss the good weather at home - maybe I shouldn't go lol.
With all of this going on over these last couple of weeks I haven't had much visiting time to all your blogs - sometimes it comes down to a choice make a card or blogging doesn't it
and well, we all have to work hard at our cards in this game!!!!
The challenge this week over at Fab'n' Funky Challenges is very appropriately
We want there to be something new about your card, it could be a new baby -any occasion that falls into new beginning or you could have used something new on your card or to make your card. to qualify for the prize you have to tell us what the "new" is on your card
We have a fabulous new sponsor
who are offering a great prize of $10 to spend in store
So here is my "new beginnings" card
I love this little girl! - I was lucky enough to win some Digis from Di's shop a few weeks ago and this is one of the ones I chose- being used today for the first time. Sorry - I'm back on the easel thing - I find myself looking at challenges now and thinking - can I make an easel card for that lol.
