Hi guys first want to tell you my news,went over to the
yesterday,and oh who's name was on the blog,but little old mine.  I entered into,the DT as I knew,the Pixie Cottage had come to en end and to be honest,never thought any more about it as was certain,they would not want me.  But oh low and behold,my name is on there,and had conformation,by email too so bless you girls for asking me onto your DT as I know how talented you guys are and so many,entered,the call too.  So chuffed yep you bet,got some more news too,but sworn to secrecy.
Right after all my decorating,I saw this note holder in the craft stamper magazine,I did not have the die,to use so had to make my own,from card well this is chipboard actually.  I am,terrible,so I just followed the picture,as for some reason,could not follow,the diagram,with the measurments,on.
So I just made my own,template which luckily was okay.
So here it is,papers,are Kay,and Co,and Kanban,flower I made,swirls,Marriana dies,Tim' tickets,Kay and Co butterfly,lace,adheshive stones.  For the papers,I used more Kay and Co,then stamped part of,a butterfly onto the top corners,of the paper hope you like it.
I had to sand,down,the sides of the chipboard as I had to shape it by hand,as I said I do not have any of Tim's Dies,as I do not have a machine,which will cut them.
Thanks again,to the Cheryl,and Becks,for choosing me to be part of your team,oh doing happy dance,well on one leg that is,lol.

I also want to welcome Debbie,and Elaine to my blog,bless you guys for adding to my list,oh its growing love it when I see,more,crafy people join my blog,so thanks guys.
I will pop and see you all later,as have an app at the dentist,at 9am this morning,so best get my skates on see you all later.
I will,add challenges later if you know of any please let me know.
