Sharing some exciting news.

Today I have some exciting news to tell you about.
. Earlier this week when I arrived home from holiday, I set about reading my emails. One just popped off the screen, I had been invited to join the DT of the new Challenge  Blog  'Fashionable Stamping'
Wow, the excitement, I can honestly say I am thrilled to be joining such a talented,  artistic  group of stampers.

The current challenge No 3  is 'Ribbon and or Lace' so here is my card  for this theme.
The card base is covered with a favourite print stamp.  I used a script embossing folder  with a coloured card, then rubbed the top with  distress ink. The flapper image  is a Hampton Arts stamp, coloured with cosmic shimmer watercolours. For  all  the shadings  I used tea dye, antique linen and tumbled glass distress inks. The trimmings  are from my stash.
So this is my first trip down the catwalk as a Stampette, I look forward  visiting  your blogs and hope  all  my blogging friends will  join us and enter the  Fashionable  Challenges.
Thankyou for stopping by to take a look, I realy appreciate you calling.
