Quixotic Challenges and some news!
Hello crafty friends! Firstly I will share with you my good news. I have been chosen to be part of the Simply Create DT!! I am so excited to be part of this team and can't wait to get creating some fab projects for Jacqui.
It is great to be part of a team that is so local! And there are a few other local gals on the DT too...Kath, Kirsti, Kat....maybe a few more I have missed. So keep your eyes peeled for lots of fab goodies coming soon from Simply Create.
So it is time for another Quixotic Challenge and this week we have the fab theme of black, white and one other colour.
I have chosen to colour 'Smile' from Belles and Whistle's using prisma pencils (lots of Cool Grey's with a splash of blue!). The papers are MME 'Meadowlark' which full of gorgeous monochrome lovliness!
I used my Viva Decor Black Pearl Pen to create the flourish. I was a bit nervous of doing this as my card was all finished and stitched together and I knew if I messed it up I would mess up the whole card. But no fear the pen behaved itself and was so easy to do....no splodges or wonky dots. I can't recommend these pens highly enough!
Before I go I just wanted to let you know that the Quixotic Paperie now has the the latest release from The Greeting Farm now in stock! There is the sweet new Oh Boy Ian and Sweet Anya along with Sweet n Toxic - an awesome new set featuring the Creepy Crew!Belles 'n Whistles stamps. Lots of popular designs all back in stock in high quality photo-polymer. If you love Elisabeth Bell's designs, you're sure to find something you like! There are still some of the old red rubber stamps from Belles 'n Whistles available at the fab price of £5.00 each. Stocks are low on these now, so grab them while you can, they won't be available in rubber again!
To celebrate being part of Simply Create's new DT I was going to put up some blog candy today....but time has run away with me. So, check in tomorrow and I'll have some crafty goodies to giveaway!
