How Excited Am I????

Sorry this post is late, but blogger has been playing up again and wouldn't  allow me to upload any photos and then seemed to swallow my post! I've found that by switching browsers (yet again) that I can now post! Anyway onto my news :D

Do you remember a while ago I did a GDT spot for Polka Doodles? Well you can imagine how shocked but truly delighted I was to receive an email out of the blue from the lovely Nikky Hall from Polka Doodles asking me if I'd like to be a permanent DT member!!! Of course I thought about it for ages before accepting (all of about two seconds) and then thought maybe it was a wind up!! But nope, twas a genuine offer and so I'm now thrilled to be able to tell you that I'm a permanent member of the Polkadoodles DT.

I also promised on Friday to show you a project of some kind. Now it's a little different to what I normally make as I've used a template and pre-coloured images.

This card is for my lovely friend who has been seriously poorly for a very longtime who I thought deserved a really special card. As always I'm chasing my own tail and I  really didn't have time to spend designing a card from scratch, I thought that this would be an ideal card to trial. I have to say I'll definitely be doing this again and will also be adapting the template and idea to create other cards - so as far as I'm concerned it's a complete winner.

      The template on the CD shows how the card is constructed. I'm sorry I can't be of more help than that, but obviously there are copyright issues.
