Big News!

I opted for a piece of Apple & Sultana cake said low fat but I think they were lying cuz it tasted full fat to me lol.
Ok folks...I'm gonna let you in on my Big News! I follow a few blogs and like many of you I have my favourites. Top of my list is The Spotted Chick...Jeanie has the best sense of humour which show in her cards and what she writes. I often wondered what it would be like for someone like Jeanie to design a card using one of my stamps. I've procrastinated for months now on contacting the Queen of Chicks...what if my email went straight into her spam folder? What if she didn't like my stamps? What if she said .....NO?
Well....last weekend I did just that. I took a brave pill and emailed Jeanie asking her if she would be interested in designing a card/cards using my stamps and blogging them and guess what??? SHE SAID YES!!!! Oh my word....I can't tell you how excited I was when I got her email (think dancing around the room and whooping). I am still in shock and sooooooooooooo excited. So officially from the end of this month Jeanie is going to be a Monthly Guest Designer and I can't tell you how honoured I am.
I quickly rustled up a package and mailed it off to her before she could change her mind. Her favourite is Magnum and Lily and I can't wait to see what she does with them. I couldn't just send the stamps so I made her this card to go in the package.
This is one of 4 Christmas Magnum & Lily images

Poor Magnum...I don't think he's having much fun....on the other hand....

Lily is lol!

I made the snowflake with felt and my Cuttlebug snowflake dies and added a 7mm Swarovski crystal to the middle.
What do you think? Will Jeanie like it?
I think I've outstayed my welcome in Starbucks so I'm going to pack up and head home. Hopefully my internet will be up and running at home this week....if not I'll have to force myself to take another trip to the mall.
Thanks for stopping by.
Catch ya later x

I love apples and sultanas - reminds me of the delicious strudels we had whilst living in Germany yum yum!
Love the new card and your news was very very very exciting!!!! (I told you you had nothing to worry about ;) - I know it's scary but Simon always tells me if you don't ask, you don't get and then you're left forever wondering!!) I'm sure Jeanie will love the stamps and this Magnum and Lily stamps is gorgeous. I love Lily, what a dare devil!! xxx

Lol @ Jeanie - I'm sure you'll like the card even more IRL! I've been the recipient of Kerry's cards and they're gorgeous - I'm sure you'll love yours!
Magnum and Lily are brilliant aren't they!! I'm a cat convert (for the purposes of these stamps!)

Looking forward to seeing Jeanie's rendition of your line, Kerr. It's always nice to see how someone else would do something. Can't wait!
