Exciting News!!!

I've been chosen as the new design team member for the

I've been bursting to tell someone since I found out earlier this week...but they made me promise to keep it a secret until today! I'm so excited to be joining the fabulous design team...I love their challenges...and am really looking forward to working with them. In fact I was so excited...I couldn't resist having a quick play and making a card for this week's challenge! The theme (chosen by Mandy) is:

'Dig Deep' - (use an old stamp or image)

I decided to use the first Penny Black stamp I bought...'Carolling Chickens'...nearly three years ago...since then I've become addicted to stamping...and Penny Black stamps! I haven't used this stamp yet on this year's Christmas cards, so I thought it was about time I inked it up. I've kept this card quite simple...I don't normally craft mid-week...so had to keep it quick. The papers are by My Mind's Eye ('Festive Frost'), the sentiment stamp is by Studio G, and the raffia lace is from Hobbycraft.


The rest of the design team have created some real stunners...so make sure you pop over to the Secret Crafter to have a look before you dig out those forgotten or neglected stamps and images.
