Cute and Cuddly and Exciting News

I can now reveal that I have joined the lovely DT at A Gem of a Challenge where the challenge is cute and cuddly. I am so delighted to be joining this team as I have loved Pink Gem images for a very long time and have often considered applying but the timing of DT calls has never been right for me. The offer of joining came at just the right time as it was a few days after my deciding to leave Winter Wonderland. 

I seem to be have had lots of animal cards on my bog this week. Isn't this image adorable and I have used lovely bright colours today.

Image - Pink Gem digi Bella with Flowers
Medium - Copics
Papers - MME 
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
flowers - Go Kreate die and brads
Other - ribbon from America

No craft fairs this weekend though we hope to pop into a local one this afternoon to see some friends who are selling. We are looking forward to a meal out tonight with friends. Enjoy your weekend.
