Exciting News

 Hello Everyone.
Today is a very exciting day for me as I have been chosen to join Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge blog as a design team member, and it is time to post my first card.


The theme this week is 'Use A Spooled Item', whether that be ribbon, thread, bakers twine or anything else that comes on a spool.


One of the sponsors this week is Dr Digi, and I was lucky enough to be given 'Blunder Woman' to use for the challenge. I hope you like what I came up with. She has been coloured with Promarkers and I have kept the layout quite simple.
I would like to enter my creation in the following challenges;
Crafter's Cafe - ribbon and/or lace
Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes
Crafty Boots Challenge - red, white and/or blue
Come and Get It - starts with B (Blunder woman)
