Very Exciting News for Me!!

Hello my friends, I promised you exciting news and here it is ......................................................I have been spotlighted on Simply Sassy Blog today!!  The very talented Marie has chosen me and I am so priveleged and proud to be there - for me, this is the Ultimate Crafter Dream - to be posted on your favourite Stamp's Blog by the Design Team!!  I think I have died and gone to heaven!!  How childish am I?? Act your age Sheila not your shoe size he he!!

I would like to extend a massive thanks to the Simply Sassy Design Team for showing my cards on their fabulous blog!!

This is a card I have made especially for showcasing using the stunning Butterflies and Pigtails.   Following the sketch from Sketch Saturday's current challenge (rotated), I used Freeibe DPs from Papercraft Essentials, my PMs to colour the image, black & white cardstock, 2 dies and a Xcut border punch.

 The close up shows how I coloured the stamped image using my Promarkers - they are my fav medium for colouring but I was going to take Kerry's (the very talented Pickle) advice and try out the Prisma pencils but money is tight at the mo so they will need to wait a month or so.
I am going to enter this into the following challenge:~

Sketch Saturday's challenge - I rotated the sketch so hope this is still allowed.

Butterflies and Pigtails rubber stamp from Simply Sassy range coloured with PMs~
