Very exciting…For Me Anyway!

 Frosty Friends Christmas Card (4) 

Morning everyone. I was hoping to post this yesterday and share some really (really really really!) fantastic news but we took an impromptu trip to the in-laws to watch some of the Great South Run. We also watched my husband’s cousin, who was playing in a Samba Band along the side of the route. We did a lot of walking and I was so tired when we got home I didn’t have the energy to post.

So onto my news…… I have been lucky enough to join the Whimsy Stamps Digi DT for the next 6 months. Whoop whoop!  I applied a couple weeks back and didn’t hold out much hope as I was sure there would be loads more fantastic crafters applying, so you can imagine my excitement when I found out. Elliot did think it a little strange when Mummy started hopping around the lounge.

I love the artists that design for Whimsy Stamps so I had to colour an image and make a card to share (to celebrate!):

Frosty Friends Christmas Card (2)

The image I picked is 'Frosty Friends' - StampArt Design by Kathryne as I’m trying to catch up on making some Christmas cards. The image has been coloured with ProMarkers and for a change I’ve used no patterned papers. However I have used plain Kraft and red card from my stash, a ‘Tied Together’ embossing folder, some Marianne Snowflake dies, some Scalloped Square Nesties, some card candy, some real and faux stitching (my sewing machine was having a tantrum so I gave up after the first layer, a sentiment from a Hobby Arts set, some tiny staples (coloured to match with a ProMarker) and plenty of good old sparkly glitter.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

So thank you for stopping by and sharing my exciting news with me and if you fancy having a nosey at who the other new DT members are please hop over to the Whimsy Stamps Inspiration Blog post here.
