Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge DT - New Manga Stamp Release

YES YES YES and Yes!!!!!!! whoop whoop, this is my EXCITING NEWS!!!!!!

The lovely and very talented Jane and Wendy from the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, have asked me to be a permanent Design Team Member, this lovely request just iced the cake for me this month :) 

Of course I accepted so quickly, before they changed their minds - it has really been such a struggle not to scream in blog land all week, think I just about managed it. What do you think?

So the new challenge is on at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge Blog but as always I just cannot move on to the next challenge with out mentioning the stunning entries in the last challenge, I really enjoyed hopping about and leaving some love where ever I dropped.

The theme this week is


I was so very very very lucky to win four of these little beauties and I can tell you that they are simply amazing to work with and colour.  I was a little jealous last week as the DT were using some Oriental ones and they were fabulous................

Here is what I created for our Manga challenge prior to the new release, oh don't you all just want to lay on a fluffy white rug like her?
I am entering this into these challenges
Crafty Catz (well what a perfect challenge for her) - black, white and one other colour (bronze)
Scrapbook Sisters - Pets Galore (well she is one hot pussy cat)

Luckily for me yesterday saw two new manga releases,  I had time to use one of them prior to todays post going live "Christmas Sledging" and you can purchase yours in the Secret Crafter Shop, along with lots of other goodies. (link on my sidebar)

This is Christmas sledging

which can be purchased here for a fabulous price of only £2.99

and this one is Christmas Angel

which can be purchsed here for a fabulous price of only £2.99

aren't they just amazing!!!!

I have made another Christmas card, my stack is growing so nicely and I have managed to keep to my new years promise of making one a week and then some, and who would not with this little beauty.

Here is my very first actual Design Team creation 

The base card is silver mirror card, and on top of this is layered papers from the Dovecraft, Let is Snow stack.  I tried to stick to the aqua's in the stack.  The sentiment is an MSE and the punched edge is a MS, the ribbon is by Papermania along with the little bow, it is part of the Capsule Collection of Mono papers. I have added some little blue pearls and some silver punched snowflakes. A true Winter Wonderland feel to the card.

It has been some time since I showed the inner of the card, here I have used another MSE sentiment and matched the papers from the front of the card.

As always here is a close up of the gorgeous image coloured with copics.

This image is currently only available as a digi, but the others are also available as clear stamps.

Oh don't you remember your younger days in the snow on the sledges, we have some amazing hills for it in our area.

Please pop over to the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and see what (oh gonna love saying this) my very talented teamies have created :)

I would like to welcome my new followers and say thank you to my recent visitors who have taken the time to leave such inspiring words, and Mandy sorry for the suspense.....

and would also like to thank the ladies at Mad for Markers who sent my winning three copics, in Pinks, all the way from Australia and they arrived today, safe and sound with a lovely smiley on the box, and working well (I just had to use them on this image, well you would wouldn't you)

I am entering this creation into

Fussy N Fancy - Winter Wonderland
Charisma - Vintage (I think this image portrays a vintage feel)
Paperplay - Blue, orange and Olive - the main card in the blues with the orange and olive in the image
Colour Create - Purple, Aqua and White - the main card in the blue aqua shades, with purple and white on the image.
Caardvarks - Inside and Out
and the sketch I used was from The Pixie Cottage and  I also think this image is so sweet

Have a great weekend
