O is for ......

Owl
Olive (my sister's olive tree is at my mums will try and add a photo later today)

Edited to include Olive photo, too early for flowers or fruit yet this year.

Big blog post, so much to share!

First my design team post has been officially announced over at Creative Moments. There is a piece about me (together with an unnecessarily large photo) on their blog here. Can't wait for my 1st parcel of projects to arrive.

Had an e-mail this morning to say that an ATC of mine has been chosen as ATC of the Week on the DoCrafts site. You can see the article about it here I'll post a picture of it on my blog once next week's ATC has been announced.

Excitement over and I have pictures of those cards from yesterday. The first is for challenge 10 at Copic Creations on the theme of Red, Pink and hearts.
I used a magnolia stamp and the background paper is K&Co Berry Sweet which you can just about see the hearts on. I made the little shrink plastic charm from the Whiff Of Joy greetings stamps I won on Rach's blog. Originally the design of the card was going to be for Kathy's challenge #15 Crisp and Simple. But I changed so many elements on it there's hardly any resemblance to the original sketch. So I started again and to keep me on track I stuck with the exact sketch as near as I could.The little frog is from Stampendous and the glittered card is DCWV.

I don't think I can cram much more in today. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!

Both cards are fab Kate - thanks for using the sketch - I love to see what people make with them!

I look forward to my DT stuff arriving each month, so I know you'll be excited too! I'll check out those links later as I appear to be procrastinating again even by being here!
