Baby Christening and Some Fab News

Welcome to the weekend and the sun is shining :-)

I'll start with my news first as I'm really quite excited about this one!  You remember back in May I attended a Clarity Stamp workshop?  Well since then I've been really, really busy as Barbara asked me to join her design team!  OMG how fab is that?  My first selection of cards are for the shows on Create and Craft this weekend so if you're watching listen out for me and then I've got the German show coming up shortly afterwards.  I'm both nervous and excited but, I'll be glued to the tv watching in anticipation :-)

I knew my crafting buddies would understand my excitement as others don't really get why I've been like a kid at Christmas ever since I found out!  I'll be able to show you my cards once the programmes have been aired.

Anyway onto today's card and it was a commission from my best friend for a christening that she was attending.  I decided to try a criss cross card for the first time with this one as I think they're so effective and it was so simple to make too.

Materials used:
Coloured with promarkers
Nestability - labels 18
Spellbinder die - crosses (set one)
Distress ink - spun sugar
Faux stitching - Marvy lePlume pen - cherry
Ribbons and papers from my stash

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - distressing
I Love Promarkers - anything goes
Whimsy Stamps - anything but square
Creative Inspirations - anything goes
Delicious Doodles - recipe (1 image, 2 ribbons, 3 pearls)
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Fab 'n' Funky - cute & girly
Bearly Mine - anything goes

xx Happy crafting and glittery hugs xx
