Exciting times!

Hello my friends, welcome back & welcome to my new followers too!.
Well, I have some exciting news to share with you today.
I recently saw that Imagination Crafts were looking for DT members & I decided to try my luck & apply.
Imagine my delight when I was offered one of the positions!!
So, as of the 1st December myself & the other design team members will be showcasing products from Imagination Crafts & bringing you some inspiring projects.
 I do hope you'll keep stopping by to see what we come up with.

So today I thought it appropriate to show you a card I have made using Imagination Crafts products.

I stamped the Decoupage Stamp Sets - Owls Border twice & coloured with promarkers.
I cut away the background in the middle of the design ready for my own created background to show through.
I then cut out the little owl & decoupaged it onto the main coloured image with 3d foam.
I die cut a silver scalloped frame for my owl image using a spellbinder.
Next I created my background by scraping diamond Sparkle Medium through the Random Stars background stencil.
Once dry I then added my owl image with 3d foam to give depth.

Finally, I matted & layered this onto vintage silver card to match the frame around my owls & then again onto navy card edged with blue dimensional paint dots.

Before I go I thought I would share some pics of the cake & other bits & bobs I made for my daughter's birthday this week.
She turned 5 & like most 5 year olds she is completely obsessed with all things to do with the Disney film Frozen.
So that was the theme of the party which we hosted for 20 children.
 Unfortunately, Daisy got chicken pox a couple of days before her birthday but after a trip to the doctor we were given the OK to go ahead with the party.

I'm pleased to report that the chicken pox seem to be on their way out,  just in time for her to go back to school!.

Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.

  1. First of all, congratulations! The team will be all the better for having you on it! Love the card you made, the owls are so cute and I love the beautiful background you created.

    Your daughter is a very lucky little girl to have a Mum who can make a gorgeous cake like that - wow. My GDs are very into Frozen too - they would have loved that cake, cupcakes and cookies!
