Sentimental Sundays


Earlier this week I decided that it was time to step down from this wonderful team. It was a really tough decision and I've been too-ing and fro-ing with it for weeks. What with my job and my DT stuff going on both in the public eye and behind the scenes I knew it was time to step back a little and stop stressing over so many DT commitments.

I am on a few teams which have regular new releases as well as new up and coming products which need to be showcased so to speak. I also get regular over time at work which I always welcome, so that eats into my craft time too.

A lot of you may know that Ann Vento recently stepped down also, and the ladies over at the challenge blog have worked extra, EXTRA, hard to keep this challenges up and running and for that I take my hat off to them!! Thank you all SO much for having my along for the ride - I really have had a blast. I remember when I applied for the DT position, I honestly didn't think I stood a chance. But thanks to the lovely Ann and a great friend, Susan, I got in!! :) You girls ROCK!!

Anyway, enough of the soft talk!! Here is my project for my last ever challenge which is one we all love.


Some more Christmas goodness for ya! ;)

Really clean and simple, these are part of a commission. They're only small square cards, the exact size of them escapes me right now. I've used a gorgeous stamp from a Waltzing Mouse stamp set which I have embossed in silver. The SU! Real Red cardstock has been cut using a labels four die. The card base has been embossed using an embossing folder from Sizzix and the olive grosgrain has been in my stash forever. A good cover up between the embossed and none embossed area of the card! ;)

I would like the enter this card into these challenges:
× CES Challenges - Seeing Red
× Little Claire - Christmas
× Floweret - Christmas

Cardstock: Papercuts - Cream Linen; SU! Real Red
