Exciting News

Well it has been a very eventful week, lots going on here lately. Got some very exciting news to share! My lovely Facebook friend Kelly decided to start up her own challenge blog and asked a few of us to join as Design Team!! All new to me as I have never done it before but I think I am in very experienced and capable hands to guide me in the right direction should I mess up on the way haha! The blog is called Just Inspirational and will be focusing on taking inspiration for your makes from photos/pictures with perhaps the odd sketch here and there lol! There is also going to be surprise candy on offer from today until the release of the first challenge on 3rd Nov. Candy has being given by the very generous Kelly and a couple of sponsors who have been very kind in giving us some things to add to the pot! Can't wait to start our first challenge, it will be going live on Thurs 3rd Nov!

Now onto my creation of the week lol! I have made my first card using an image I coloured using my Promarkers and I have to say I am very proud of myself as I think it is fab!! (I am biased though, I suppose lol)

I decided to do an easel card this time as I have only ever made one before and have been thinking that I really should start to challenge myself a bit more lol! The papers are from part of a Wedding paper pack from Paper Cellar that I was sent from a friend for winning a challenge. The image I think was a freebie from the internet that I have had a while on the PC but I'm not sure where I got it. I coloured it in as a practice and thought it looked that good I decided to acutally use it lol! The first one I have not just binned haha! Added some paper flowers and Card Candi, and a stamped sentiment layered onto the same as I used to layer the main panels of the card. I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;

Bearlymine challenges - Easel does it
Glittergeeks - Flower power
Onestitchatatimechallenge - Anything goes
Toptiptuesday - Use design papers
Totallypapercrafts - Animals
