January and sharing some exciting news.



This is the first  monthly swap I am sharing with a craft friend who doesn't blog. We have decided to make a  calender  'fat page book'.
This is my version  with the  January tab on the back. We are going to make the front and back pages ourselves.

Besides old well loved stamps, I used  a set of Kanban and Urban by Papermania that she sent me for Christmas.
I used distress inks for colouring, the bird cage is a Memory Box die.

Challenges entered
Make my Monday  new theme for this month is Nature and this week  its a focus on Birds
Just for Fun its Anything  goes

Now I am shouting out my news. [I have tried many times to get this posted at the top of this post] 

Just before the holidays   I was asked  by  the talented folk over at Crafty Cardmakers  to join their Design Team. You can guess  my answer was  'yes please '.  I am realy looking forward to the challenges.

Thankyou for stopping by , you know I realy appreciate your comments .
