4 Challenges in 1 Card & Exciting News!

Can you believe it?! I managed to squeeze 4 challenges in to just 1 VERY bright card! It's a bit of a first for me and I am feeling rather pleased with myself! Not a huge fan of the card but pleased with the 'challengeability' of it! The 4 challenges and the requirements are:

1. Secret Crafter - Sketch.
2. Stamp with Fun - Pearls.
3. ABC - Yellow.
4. Creative Card Crew - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.

I have had these Making Memories papers for ages but have barely used them as they are so bright! I've always thought they were too busy to put together too but yesterday I was feeling brave and just decided to go for it!

Goodie List........
'Flutter Anya' by The Greeting Farm, available from Dies to Die For.
Paper: Making Memories.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) & Copic markers.
Tools & Embellishments: Nestabilities and pearls from stash.

So, as the title of this post indicates, I have some VERY exciting news to share with you. A little while ago, I tentatively entered in to the Whimsy Stamps DT call. I say tentatively as I kinda knew I wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell of getting picked. Well, lets just say, I clearly know nothing as Denise has asked me to join the Whimsy team!

It actually took me a while to reply to Denise's email as I spent quite some time leaping round the house in celebration! I am so grateful to get the chance to work with such a talented DT and can't wait for my first stamps to arrive so that I can start crafting up a storm! :o)

Hope you are all having a lovely weekend and that the sun is shining on you, wherever you are!
