Exciting News, Friday Sketchers Challenge & The Crafty Alley Challenge


Hi there and thanks for stopping by. Well I've been bursting to tell you this, but a few days I got an email from Tracey Feeger from Spesch Designer Stamps asking if I would like to join her DT. Well I thought long and hard (about 3 seconds, LOL) and quickly replied back before she changed her mind.


I couldn't wait to get started on these gorgeous images, so here's the first card that I've made.


This gorgeous digi image is called 'Spring Flower' from Spesch Designer Stamps and I've coloured her using my ProMarker pens.

I've followed a fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers, so I shall enter my card there.

The gorgeous DP I've used is Cosmo Cricket and this is from my April DT Kit from The Crafty Alley. When my DT kit arrived from the Crafty Alley, I was completely shocked about all the gorgeous goodies that was in there. Here's a picture of what was included


If you fancy getting your hands on this gorgeous kit, well you can but you'd better hurry as there's only 10 available. For the fabulous price of 30 euros you can get all this -
