We are family and some exciting news

So far it's a beautiful day here, the sun is shining but it's still a bit blowy. I've a pile of ironing to do today but decided to have a bit of time in my craftroom first and make a card. The digi image is from Pollycraft and is called Family. I've been looking through my digis and finding images I've never used and like yesterday's this is a first outing for this gorgeous image. It's so nice to have an image with Dad as well as Mum and baby. The papers are Prima sweet fairy. Did you notice the little fairy on the bottom left hand side? I coloured the image with Promarkers and added some Crealie die cut swirls, pink pearls and flowers from Crafty Emma's Store.

I have 2 lots of lovely news today. Firstly I am very excited that I have been asked to start teaching cardmaking in January at a craft shop in Lowestoft. Secondly I have been asked to stay on as a permanent DT member at Totally Gorjuss. So I am now permanently gorjuss, not just temporarily, rofl! There is a call out for Guest Gorjusettes so if you would like to join this friendly team for 6 months view the sidebar on the blog for details. It really is a lovely team with some great challenges. Call ends 30 September.
