Some Exciting News!

Hi everyone,

Yay it's Friday, I hope you have had a good week.

Well I have some very exciting news to share with you. As you know I have been guest designing for Polkadoodles for a couple of weeks which I loved, but then I was contacted by Nikky to ask me join the team full time, wahoo, I am so excited and it only took a nano second to respond, so thank you Nikky for inviting me to be part of this awesome team.

So this is my first DT card. As always the challenge is 'Anything Goes' but the DT are always tasked with a theme. This time the team had to used pastel colours, well you know I love pastel colours so it wasn't a difficult one for me.

This gorgeous girl is called 'Surprise Gift Winnie' and I have coloured her with DI reinkers, but if colouring isn't your thing or you need to make a quick card, you can also buy her pre-coloured. (I have put links to both at the bottom of my post).

Just click here to go to the papers as the link is not working properly at the bottom of the post.

The sentiment is also from Polkadoodles from the Winnie Celebrations kit 1.

I printed Winnie onto watercolour card and cut her out with a curricular die, once coloured I mounted it onto a  LDRS butterfly wreath die cut, finishing it off with some white pearl string. The small butterflies are also part of of the die set.

The pom pom trim, most of the flowers, ribbon and lace are from the Ribbon Girl.

The die cut heart is a Joy Crafts die, the paper doily is from my crafty stash.

The ribbon, lace (sorry its currently out of stock, but there is lots more gorgeous lace to choose from), twine, pearl trim and flowers are from the 

DI reinkers
