Exciting News!

I can finally tell you all my exciting news!  I applied to join the Design Team at Fab 'n' Funky Challenges back in October and I got in!  I could not believe my eyes when the email came through!  Delighted and honoured to be picked.  I hope I can live up to the challenge. 

The current challenge on the Fab 'n' Funky Challenge blog is "Anything Goes", sponsored by the The Stamping Boutique.  I chose this cute image of a carousel horse and instantly knew I wanted to use bright colours with it.  It reminds me of a My Little Pony that I had as a child.  I made the gatefold card blank using my Ultimate Pro (not sure how I managed before without one!) and used purple Core'dinations and orange pearlescent card to match my image colourings. 

The photo doesn't show it up very well but I added My Craft Studio glitter around the horse and onto the saddle.  The image was cut using one of the X-Cut dies that I won back in July through the DoCrafts Creativity Club Prize Draw.  The dies are good quality but the scalloped and straight edged squares don't nest like the Spellbinders.  I am chuffed with the cutting and embossing results though.

I'm having my kitchen redone so my toaster and kettle are sitting on my glass cutting matt at the moment!  Not the best way to craft but I'm sure it won't stop me!  Hoping that I'll have my sitting room back in a couple of weeks and a new kitchen to boot.
Happy crafting. x
