I'm on the team!!!!

Happy Thursday to you .....

A bit of a late start for me today ....... we had a great night last night, the Christmas party was a success!!!
Good food ........ great company and lots of Christmas spirit!!!

This was the table at the start of the evening ....... I won't show you what it looked like by the end of the night ..... lets just say there wasn't a lot of food left  on it!!
We had a few surprises along the way too ...... would you believe I forgot a very important anniversary.  Apparently it was hubby and I's 10,000 Days Wedding Anniversary ....... and I missed it!!!!

What made him work that one out I'll never know but he did  ....... he made a speech and everything, and I got this ......

That's my New Year's Eve sorted then!!!

Anyway .... enough of all that I've got some more exciting news to share with you.

I'm joining the STAMPlorations CAS Design Team ..... whoo hoo!!!
I answered the DT call back in November and I was so excited when Shery invited me to join the team.
It all gets underway in January with a brand new CAS Blog challenge and I can't wait to get started.
Here's a little something to what you can expect from me .....

As part of the DT call you had to submit a card (CAS design of course) showcasing STAMPlorations products.

I used the pretty STAMPlorations Trendy Leaves for my design ..... love these stamps!!!

I simply used an acrylic block to stamp my background ....... applied Distress Inks directly to the block, spritzed with a little water then stamped onto a piece of white card

I then stamped the leaves over the top, added a few splashes of ink here and there and finished with a nice sentiment.  This one is from a set called Dare, one of the Subway Art Builders

I also added just a few drops of Glossy Accents to add a little bit more interest to the leaves

The new blog challenge starts in January next year and I look forward to seeing you there.

Thanks for popping by ..... enjoy the rest of your day.
There's nothing going on here today except the clean up from last night!!  It's time to relax and re-charge I think, before the festivities start again tomorrow.  We're got dinner at my favourite restaurant tomorrow night, then Saturday we're off to see the new Star Wars film and Sunday is the last of the Christmas shopping ..... I hope!!!

Cheerio until next time
