Good News

Woo Hoo we've finally had confirmation that Emily has been accepted by Lincoln University.  We got the news on her mobile whilst in the supermarket.  Have you ever seen an 18 year old in a flowery dress and bright turquoise Doc Marten boots doing a jig in the aisles of Asda lol.  As you can imagine we got a few bemused looks!!

My second bit of good news is that I have had an email from Papercrafts Inspiration magazine asking if they can publish one of my cards in an upcoming feature.  Well of course I said yes.  It will be in the November issue.

While I am on a roll, here's my 3rd bit of good news.  Katie and Colette from Nutcrafters are relaunching their  blog and have asked me to join their Design Team, another Woo Hoo!!   They had to put it on hold earlier this year as they both gave birth to gorgeous babies within a month of each other.  They are now ready to start blogging again and are looking for 2 new members to join us on the Design Team.  So if you fancy joining us all you have to do is make a card or craft item using a Nutcrafters image.  If you don't have a Nutcrafters image don't worry just leave a message or email them and they'll send you a free digi image to use.

They are also releasing a new set of Autumn stamps, available from 1 September.  You can have a sneaky peak of one of them below.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Cards For Men - Anything Goes
Here Come The Boys - Orange and Brown
Pollycraft - Autumn Colours

Thanks for reading and have a lovely evening.

Hi Debs I love how you have used the images he looks so cute. Your description of your daughter reminds me of my daughter she is 17 and goes everywhere in her Doc Martins hers are purple and she wanted to wear them with her prom dress lol. It must be a relief getting the confirmation of your daughters place in Uni. I looking forward to working with you on the Nutcrafters DT love Linda xxx

Congratulations on all your news & brilliant about Emily's confirmation. Thrilled about your DT position & forthcoming publication feature too. I'd nver heard of "Nutcracker" before your use of their images so I'm really looking forward to your work with the DT.
