Joining the Fussy and Fancy DT

Hi everyone

I have some really exciting news to tell you.  I have been asked by Sally-Ann Hanes to join her Challenge Blog at  as a DT Member - of course I said yes and felt really honoured that she had asked me.  When I said I would join her and the rest of the team I had only had a quick glance at the Challenge Web Site and liked it straight away.   The Blog is all about the love of the craft and having a bit of fun whilst showcasing different techniques.
I have a real thing about
Tags lately but this one
surprised me because I
normally don't do Pretty.

The prize for winning the challenge is a chance at being a guest designer,  this is announced every other Friday along with the Fussy and Fancy Top 5. I would like to thank the rest of the DT for your warm welcome. I also got a pleasant surprise when I found out the name of the other person who is being announed as a DT member today too, I met her at the NEC and I really look forward to working with her but you will have to nip along to Fussy and Fancy to find out who it is.
 So thank you for asking me to join you Sazzle and I look forward to entering my first project in two weeks time.
 I never like to leave a blog without any eye candy so I will leave you with a few of my more recent projects that I have done - some were for when Tom went on Create & Craft TV and some are from a 12 Days of Xmas Tags challenge I did on this Blog - I also run a blog from my website at  wich showcasses the work I do for SplodgeAway. 

I would say this Tag probably suums up
the type of work I like to do best.
