We're at the half-way mark! How's ya week been so far?! I'm shattered but I always get that on my first week back at work...roll on the weekend!

However, that's enough babble about work, I do have more interesting news to share with y'all...

During half term I noticed that over on Splitcoast Stampers they were looking for a new DT for their Clean-and-Simple (CAS) challenges for spring, Olympics style! Well seeing as I'd made a few CAS cards recently I thought, 'why not?'. I didn't make it past round one, but that's just the nature of competition, right? I was watching from the sidelines from then on when I received a PM asking if I'd like to be a guest designer for a week in March! Well needless to say I grabbed the opportunity and I'll be the guest designer for the CAS challenges over at SCS on Monday March 15th!

The official DT are to be revealed tonight sometime (well past our bedtime this side of the pond!) and the competition is tough; there are some AMAZING stampers out there. I'm secretly rooting for Sally (aka ApricotRose) who is flying the flag for Team GB - good luck, Sally!

I was asked to make a card based on a sketch for the closing ceremonies of the DT search tonight to introduce myself as a guest designer and this is what I've come up with:

Oh I know it's one of my fave colour combos, but when you feel a kinda pressure to do well I tend to stick to my comfort colours!

Card Recipe
Stamps: BasicGrey Delta Series - Design 7
Ink: Versamark
Cardstock: All PTI Enchanted Evening/Pure Poppy/Stamper's Select White/Pure Poppy Bitty Dot Basics
Accessories: PTI Fresh Snow Twill Ribbon/PTI Vintage Buttons/White Gel Pen/Martha Stewart Border Punch

Don't worry - I'll remind you of when my little DT moment arrives...kinda nervous but can't wait!

Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my news!

Catch ya later!

Congrats on getting to be a guest designer. I think you should definitely be made a part of the permanent team since you do a fantastic job with clean and simple card design. I will be eager to hear what happens. Great job on the challenge card they asked for too!
