Very exciting news!

Good evening Lovelies! I'm sorry it's a late post.

I have some very exciting news to share with you! I can hardly believe it! I have been invited to become a DT member for Lavinia Stamps! :D I'm so thrilled, it's a dream come true for me, I can't wait to get started, I love Lavinia Stamps, I have many, the quality is great and the gorgeous designs are unique and beautiful, why not check them out here?

So onto my card! I heard some sad news today that my daughters ex-boyfriends dad past away after a very brave 7 year battle with cancer, such a lovely man, he will be greatly missed, he was awarded a CBE a few years back for his tireless charity work in our area, he was responsible for setting up a food kitchen and also accommodation for the homeless!

I created it with Pan Pastels, and an Indigoblu stamp called "stylised flowers" the colour combo Turquoise shade and Violet, I half inched from the very talented Eileen Godwin I saw her gorgeous tag the other day and loved it! I thought the colours suited a sympathy card, what do you think? Thank you visiting today, really appreciate it xx

Congratulations Zoe. It shows how much you love the stamps. I remember seeing them a lot of years ago at Alli Palli and was very impressed with them. Hadnt heard of them before then. They derserve there popularity and I know how you will do them justice. Good Luck.x

Congratulations on the DT spot, I too love Lavinia Stamps, they are delightful and so different from the "norm" Have fun, I look forward to seeing your creations, trouble is you will most likely end up costing me a fortune lol.
