After 11 months of making cards and bits and bobs. Luke,my 14 year old heard me mention about a site i use quite alot looking for a design team. Well he finally managed to convince me to have a go. We always say that when we make cards we are our own worse critics.Well thats me !! I always think of things that i could of done or added after ive made the card. Once Luke had finally ear bashed me ;o). I knew almost immediately what i wanted to do.. I made the card and it sat here for 3 days whilst i looked at it trying to decide what to do. I finally plucked up the courage to send it in. Then the waiting began..
On Friday afternoon i had an email off the website owner... Dare i open it ??....... After a few minutes i clicked it and read it .... YAY !!!!!! I have been asked to be a design team member at Creative Craftworld . There will be 5 design team members and guest designers. I am soooo excited to get started and work with the new team.. I am so greatful for this opportunity and hope that i can do, Louise and her hubby proud xx

I cuttlebugged the top 2/3rds of the card with swiss dots adding a thin black ribbon to define the areas.
Beer monster embellishment was one i have collected on my travels,in short i cant remember where it was from ;o)
Sentiment was from Papermainia Just for boys range.
I decided to keep the card fairly plain, for young men

Heres the card that i made for my mum off the boys.
I used backing paper and card that Thriftyscottslass sent me in last months swap. Anne also sent me the punched leaves.
The flowers were e-line daisies that were white, coloured with promarkers
The flower centers were e-ine also.
The tiny pink gems were from a multicoloured wheel that i received from Dragonllew.
I had chalked the plain white card with the stamped Daisy on too.
All colours are softer than they appear in the photo,as i made them late last night i relied on the flash and living room light......
Not to self: treat myself to a daylight lamp ;o)
I would like to enter this card in C.R.A.F.T. Challenge 40
and Quixotic Challenge #16 Leave it out
