In the pink ...

I have some exciting news to share with you ... I have been chosen to join the Guest Design Team over at STAMPlorations!!  I cannot describe how delighted and excited I am and to think I very nearly didn't put myself forward when Shery put out the design team call.  Right up until the point that I sent the email I dithered - should I, shouldn't I - but I did and I'm so pleased to have been selected I only hope that I manage to fulfil the role and inspire you to join in the challenges.  I'm joining from October through to December!

I'd like to share a card with you that features some of the beautiful stamps from STAMPlorations - it is a very special card as I created it for my lovely daughter's birthday. This is the card:

I used:

STAMPlorations - Born to Roam (for the sentiment)
                           - Floral Bliss
Distress Inks - Piked Raspberry and Wilted Violet
Sizzix Heart Die
WOW Clear Embossing Powder
Golden Molding Paste

I'm entering the following challenges:

And more exciting news - the design team over at CAS Colour and Sketches have selected one of my cards as a weekly winner.  Thank you so much I an delighted and honoured!  This is the card:
