One for Fun and Some exciting news

To Join in with my Whiff of Joy Candy and Blog hop just click on the picture on the side bar or scroll down to the next post.


Good Morning everyone hope you are all having a brilliant weekend, I cannot believe the weather we are having for early October, I woke up to the sun shining through the window and it is already quite warm outside makes me really want to get up and go, especially after my week of indolence last week. Sometimes I really just enjoy having the time to make a card just for fun, with that in mind I have decided to step down from a couple of Challenge DT posts, but if you read the news below I have taken on another Company DT post. I am hoping to have more time doing the things I miss like visiting all your blogs and actually leaving comments and also inking up some of the Rubba that has lain in its packaging for the last few months.

So here we go with this card made just for fun, Mrs Snowman has been coloured with Distress Inks (Broken China, Weathered Wood, Worn Lipstick, Peeled Paint), I havn't forgotten my promise of a Distress Ink Colouring Tutorial and am working on it today.



The papers are Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses and the stamp is High Hopes Snowlady Surprise, these are both available from Bunny Zoes Crafts, Nikki has some really fabulous High Hopes Christmas Stamps in stock at the moment so don't forget to pop over and give them a peek. The sentiment stamp is by JustRite and has been cut with Circle Nestie. I used the base pink card to punch the snowflakes with Martha Stewart Punches



Now for my good news (in fact it is fantastic news) and it has been so hard to keep it to myself for the last few weeks. My dear friend's Nikki and Lacey, have started their own Stamp Company manufacturing stamps designed by the Uber Uber talented Crissy Armstrong, the company is called .........



I was amazed and honoured as well as extremely excited to be asked to be a member of their DT Divas Team, didn't take a second for me to say yes, and since seeing the fabulous designs Crissy has come up with and the other fantastically talented Divas I am even more delighted. I hope you will love them as much as I do and don't forget to join in our fabulous opening and Blog Hop next weekend, The DT will be posting sneak peeks for two days later this week I am so looking forward to hearing what you think of the new stamps.


Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
