Ooh I've news!!! and Faye - this card is for you!

Hi blogworld (and Faye ;-) )

So the news I've been having great difficulties holding in - I really, really, really, don't do secrets!! - is out.  I replied to the DT call on Sweet Stampin' Challenge and, I don't how, I got in!!!  Am so excited!

I am really surprised the lovely ladies at Sweet Stampin' even looked at my email, I've never entered the challenge and didn't really know much about them - I'm hoping to be a quick learner!

I'm going to have to go do dishes in a mo, but after that I'm going to take a look at my new team mates blogs - some I already know - and introduce myself to those I've not met before.

I wonder if they know what they've let themselves in for!!  I'd be running for the hills if it was me!!!

Now for the card.  cooooeeeee! Faye - my turn.

So this is my first attempt at a Teddy Bea - I did try Promarkers at first, but I felt they were too strong for this image so I turned instead to my Prismas.  I'm 'quite' happy at the main image, except that I think the boots run into the image a bit to my eye it looks like she's got some weird sort of ankle bracelets on (does anyone wear ankle bracelets anymore - or toe rings (or am I just showing my age here!)).

I've got another image on the go, which I hope to have finished by tomorrow.

Anyway got to go and do those dishes, back soon.

Main shot of card:

Now Sarah, you make a card as lovely as this & you're questioning why we picked you???? I did think about running for the hills lol but where i live is just too far away from any hills so......I'll hide behind the sofa instead!

So glad to have you on the team & looking forward to working with you hon.
