Exciting News to share!!!

You may have read yesterday's post that it was my last day as GDT member at the Digi Bell's and how sad I was!! Well that was a bit of a cover because guess what??? I was asked to stay on as permanent DT member and I only had to think for a nanosecond before accepting!!! I have had an absolute ball designing with Elisabeth Bell's Digi's and working alongside the Digi Bell's DT so I am SUPER EXCITED to be staying on!!! So thank you to Janiel and Lynda (and Elisabeth) and the rest of the DT for the opportunity...
I am also excited to share with you that I will be GDT member over at The Crafty Pad!! Deborah Moore emailed me and after me asking questions as to whether I had entered to be A GDT member or won a challenge, (LOL) I accepted. Deborah draws her own images and sells them in her digi store and I look forward to creating with some of her images!!!
Well besides all that exciting news I do have a creation to share with you and I am excited about that as well!! I have seen Book Cards around in the blogging world for awhile now and I finally sat down and made one the other day and I absolutely love what I created!!! My sister (who is my number one customer) asked me to make a wedding card (that would hold money) a couple of weeks ago and I wasn't too sure what I was going to do but when I started making the book card I thought it would be perfect for a wedding card! So after getting the approval I got creating and.... well you judge for yourself!! :)

I followed Tina's fantastic tutorial which you can find HERE and it worked perfectly!!. I think the pics speak for themselves!!! I coloured these images from Whiff of Joy - Willow with Champagne - an Elisabeth Bell image and Charlie 007 - an Alison Acton image  with tria markers and used glitter pens through the girls dress and in the champagne and martini glasses. All the papers are from Kaszazz which I distressed with walnut stain distress ink! I've stuck the images down with mounting foam and I've then added all the other embellishments - flowers, rhinestones and ribbon.I also used the Stampin Up eyelet border punch for the edges of the card!! And on the inside I used a Kaszazz Background stamp!!
I hope you like it as much as I do..
