3 Things to tell you ...and a card!

1.Today I have to introduce you to a new DT member...............Vicky!!!!    I know lots of you will already know her as a fabulous crafter and, like me have been following her blog and keeping an eye on all her wonderful creations. Well, I'm delighted to be able to have her on my Design Team making cards with my digi images from A Passion for Stamps. Her first beautiful card is already on her blog so please nip over and have a look - you'll love it!

2.Another member of my DT, Kerry has been chosen as the Guest Designer for this week's Less is More challenge. Congratulations,Kerry!! Her "Camelia" card is stunning!!

3.Lots of you will already know that I'm a member of the Docrafts site (you'll find a link to my gallery there in my RH sidebar) and a letter which I sent to them has been published in this issue(27) along with my photo and a photo of some of my cards!

Onto the card....
Time for another Less is More  challenge and this week there is the choice between making a Thank You card or  Congratulations card. I've made a card using my Two Roses  digi image and I've followed this week's sketch over at PaperCraftPlanet but although I'm entering the challenge with it as it is ...I may add something to the left side (shh!) before I send it !!

I Love designer papers
