Picking roses and my exciting news


If you follow m on Facebook you may have seen my post a little while ago saying that I had a exciting e-mail. I can now reveal that I have been asked to join the lovely girls at Lili’s Little Fairies so I am officially a fairy, woohoo. I didn't hesitate to say yes as I love Lili of the Valley images and use them a lot o here is my first DT card. If you love CAS cards you may want to look away now as this card has so much going on it. It's a commissioned card and as it is an 8x8 card I had a lot of scope for embellishing.
