First Day At High School and Some Exciting News!!!

Hi Everyone,
Today was my first day at High School!!!!!! :O) I have to admit... i was scared, but as soon as i'd settled in, and go to know everyone and everything i was fine. I have a map to show me where to go, and i didn't get lost today so touch wood i won't get lost tomorrow either!
My exciting news is..... Lyndsey from LORA Crafts emailed me a few weeks ago, and asked me if i would make some cards for the shop with a DT pack she provided. It took me at least half a second to answer: YES! Of course- i'd love to. The DT Pack she provided me with was AMAZING..... full of lots of yummy papers, stamps, and embellishments, not to mention some lovely decoupage and toppers. All this will be avalible to buy when the Shop opens. { i can't wait} This is my first DT card using the gorgeous Crafts Too Papers- Chrsitmas collection. These are such great value at 2.50 for a pack of 50!!! I fell in love with this little teddy bear from PI... he's a breeze to colour, and soooooooo cute. MSBP, will also be avalible to buy.

I've following the fab sketch over at Friday Sketchers for my card

Thanks for looking,

Fern xx
