Hi de hi!!!

Hi there guys.... I have some exciting news....

I have been lucky enough to have been selected for the Artfull Crafts Design Team for this year - woop woop!  You will get to see a lot more of me in future on the Artfull Crafts Blog, which you can find here, and in their Gallery, here.  They also have a great Facebook page, which I suggest you follow as well... you don't want to miss out on any of the goss, new releases, or the fab giveaways/competitions that Liz runs :)

Now some of you won't know me, as you will have arrived here direct from Liz at Artfull Crafts.  I'm a local yokel who loves to scrap, bake, sew and read, and this blog is an eclectic mix of all of my hobbies.  I haven't utilised it much over the past year, but certainly plan to blog a lot more from here on in...

What have I been working on lately?  Well, I am away to Nelson this week for Scrapfest by the Sea with my Mum (and am really looking forward to it), and have today made my first ATC (Artist Trading Card).  I haven't ever been a fan of the generic ATCs that you find on Pinterest etc, so decided to put my own spin on it.  And of course, it's PINK!

The beginning of the 'PINK' mess...

The finished product

To put it in perspective, here it is with my snips...  It's pretty tiny :)

ATC cards are typically 2.5" x 3.5" in size.  That's a pretty small canvas to work with.  I have to say that although it took me ages to get started, once I got my head around the tiny dimensions, it was fun.  I'm off to go make some more!!!  What now?  You should go and check out who the other DT members are - there's a lot of us :)  Looking forward to a fun year working with these lovely ladies.

Toodles,
