I have some brilliant news to share:0)

Hi there crafty people.
I hope you're having a good day today, I'm over the moon. Wahooo!!!
I've had a BIG secret for a little while and I was busting at the seams wanting to share with all my lovely blogging buddies :0)
I have been chosen to join the Craft Barn Team, on the DT that is. I'm literally over the moon and haven't come down from the ceiling for days. Well I was really excited until I had to make a card then I went to pieces, LOL. I quickly pulled myself back together again and started creating.

 My  card is all about Making the Most of your Misters ( I thought that was all about men at first, hey ho! Trust me to get it wrong)
I had to take myself off for a visit to the Craft Barn and there I found these Cosmic Shimmer Chalk misters. I'd never heard of these before! I'm always stuck in front of the computer lately. Any way, I sprayed all three colours and was delighted with the result. I got pastel, Blue and Yellow and Purple. What d'you think?
 Of course I had to cut it up and the whole card had to be CAS!
I liked the soft colours and the way they mixed on the card. Oh and I got the Tim Holtz mini paper rosettes, I'd always wanted the original rosette but I felt that it was a bit large for my cards, these are just great! This is the larger of the two.

Tim Holtz  Sixxiz Alterations, Mini Rosettes
Stamps Cart Us Flowers Borders
Stickles, Platinum and Black Diamond 
 Circular sentiment, Hobby Art

Spent a little time at the Craft barn Extravaganza  today. Oh! I wish I could have stayed longer but my grand daughters who were staying with me needed attention! Great inspiration and fabulous examples on every table I visited :0)

My computer is totally out of action, so I am struggling with a slow lap top that's borrowed, it's taking so long to do anything.
BUT I'm still over the moon and feel very lucky to be joining a fantastic team. Lot's of wonderful ideas coming up so keep your eyes peeled on the  Craft Barn website and blog
Thank you for dropping by :0)
