As you know I got asked to join the design team at Crafters Companion last week, Well they didn't waste any time getting me started, Thats why I dissappear for a few days, I've never been on a design team before so didn't know what to expect or what was expected of me. The goodies arrived and I freak out, 1) because it is FABULOUS and 2) I realise what I had let myself in for.
The first couple of days I felt sick because I kept thinking I'm not good enough. I've seen so many wonderful crafters on Facebook and blogs and know they are better than me. I spoke to some of my lovely friends on Facebook telling them that I'm so worried that I'm going to let Crafters Companion down. They gave me the courage to just go for it. Well I got there in the end, Thankfully!!!
Next time (if there is a next time) I will have more confidence and do my thing lol

My card for today....

I made this card last night, its a image from Crafters Companion S.W.A.L.K stamps, They are fabulous images. The design is from a sketch design by Emma Goddard, She is fabulous. Love her work. I decided to use shades of lilacs, murberry and pinks.

The card is from Craftwork Cards. I cut papers to make layers and then tore the edges. I used my spellbinder ribbon die and treaded raffia through it.

 I stamp my image first and coloured it. When I was happy with it I then cut it out. I ink the edges, and distress the background with distress inks. I ink a dolllie and placed behind the topper

I wrote Happy Birthday and used the Spellbinder die to cut it out. I used Sizzix flourish die and cut out two in different colours, I placed them behind the label

I hope you like my card and Thank you so much for popping over. Please feel free to leave a comment as i love to read them.
Thank you
Love Lise xxx
