Exciting (and sad) times........

Sad because I had to make a card for a very good friend who is really poorly in a nearby hospice but is receiving fantastic care.  I actually managed to get the texture paste to behave for the first time on this one after many failed attempts so I'll be using it again.

Excited because I've actually reached 50 followers now and also just noted that this is my 100th post!  What a time to tell you about my great news - being invited to join a fantastic team for the re-launch of the challenge blog, Our Creative Corner.  Its a bit scary for me, being the first time I've ever been on a Design Team but the other members are all wonderful and I know I'm going to have some fun.

If you've been on Our Creative Corner before, you'll know how friendly it was and it will definitely stay the same but with a new format, a fresh new look and some great challenges for you.  The new team will be looking forward to seeing you when we open the doors.  Please pop over and say hello!

I'm so proud to display my badge .........


  1. Hi Margie, I feel so proud to be working alongside you and the other members of the DT (my first too!) on this wonderful challenge blog. Looking forward to 1st May!

    Your card for your friend is truly beautiful and the embossing paste is such a lovely touch on your card. It is always difficult in such sad times to do a card, but yours is beautiful. Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Congrats on your 50 followers, Margie,

    and I know this kind of sad times too... I hope your wonderful new job as a DT member at OCC (cheeez, I am one of them too - alongside you...soo fantastic, isn't it?) will help you have some happy thoughts too during this time.

    Your card expresses all the love and care you have for your friend.
