Thank You!...

Happy Monday lovely friends

Lovely news from the mouse house today!

I have joined the amazing DT at fabulous Dies To Die For
It's a big thank you from me to Tracy, Lou, Faye and Jane for inviting me along!'s card is my first DTDF DT post; I am feeling more than a teensy bit excited!
I have used the gorgeous stamp set Pix's Favourites and Mini Messages by Mama Elephant.

I was inspired by the very talented Kristina Werner in making this card - there is a brilliant tutorial HERE for the painting technique I used.

I decided to try something a little different and coloured (tried to colour)! with Distress Markers.  I absolutely love the effect you get with Distress Inks and am full of admiration for you wonderful DI Artists.  I have some practice to do but am determined not to give up!

  1. What a sweet and lovely card. You will love it as part of the DtDf team, I still miss my time with them, they are such a lovely bunch and Tracy is a wonderful 'boss'. So glad to see you giving DIs a whirl, the brighter colours are the ones that tend to be a little harder to blend so you've certainly jumped in at the deep end. You did a wonderful job though and as with all things, as you practice it just starts to come more naturally :) xx

  2. Congratulations and what a cute first card
