A Fair Few Challenges & Fab News To Share xxx

The wanderer returns lol xxx That's me, not this lil cutie btw !!

And I do have some fab news, but more of that in a sec, although I know some of you have already twigged and some of you knew already.

I thought I would use my new stamps to do some challenges. Both stamps are from the very wonderful Wild Rose Studio. And of course, I had to colour them with my Pro Marker bad boys - nothing else would do!!! I also had a bit of a dabble with my Sakura Glaze pens as well - just to give a bit of depth to some of the colour.

So this is my card for 2 challenges, Mojo Monday, which is based on a sketch, and a gorgeous one it is as well. And I also did the Colour Create challenge which this week is blue and brown. Well with such delish colours, how could I not!!

The papers are both Tinker & Co and the ribbon is Poppicrafts scrummy grosgrain loveliness, and I used the last bit here - cry cry!!!. I found the button in the bottom of my button box so I have not the first clue where it came from, but I'm glad I found it cos it was the just the job I thought :))x


There is an added extra for Colour Create ie you can add lace and pearls. Well girls, I managed the pearls and I did originally put some lace on it, but at the last minute I took it off cos I thought it looked a bit pants actually!!!

And I thought I'd also have a basho at this weeks Sketch & Stash, which is a sketch, and you use your newest stash on your card. So I thought that this yummy hunny bunny was perfect for the sketch, and it is a brand new stamp.

ohhh nasty pic here with that green but IRL it is a lot less harsh on the old eye balls. I may re-take this in better light and re-post it tomorrow. I may even re-take it using Emma's new camera which has loads more pixels than mine and cost about 1/10th of what my beggar did!!!

That camera needs a good slap sometimes. It is getting on a bit now, but aren't we all lol xxxx. It was an all singing all dancing one when I got it in 2003 but it is a bit behind the times now, poor thing. Sadly, I know how it feels xxx

But meanwhile, back at the blog .....

The papers and sentiment are PP and the brads and ribbon are Poppicrafts. Again I used the Sakura Glaze Pens over the little eggs and I gave it a dusting of Glamour Dust. I also decoupaged the ears and feet for a bit more dimension.

Not sure if you can see it better here or not.

Well you have probably guessed what my good news is, cos I did give a pretty big clue in my Willow Sketchie post earlier, but in case you missed it, I will now reveal!!

I am soooo pleased to tell you that I am a fully fledged member of Dulcie's Wild Rose Design team. I am chuffed as chuffed can be to be chosen, and not only do I get to play with these wonderful stamps but I also get to work with some pretty amazing and awesome girls as well, including one of my fave bloglies, the brilliant Leann who I just love to bits.

So that's my news which I am truly thrilled to share.

So on that happy happy note, I am off to see what Kath's been up to cos I just saw she's posted and I am a nosey sod, and then I am off to me bed complete with pjs (we're in the cotton ones now cos it's a bit warm for wyncyette), hot choccie and me book. Ohh I tell you, if aliens ever landed in our garden, they would do an about turn so goddam fast and hot foot it straight back to Planet Zanussi or wherever they came from cos quite frankly, I don't think they could cope with the excitement lol xxx

Night lovely peeps xxxxx
