AWESOME News!!!


Altenew Peony Bouquet pencil colored using Faber Castell classic pencils and Label Love stamp. @Altenew by @pr0digy0


Today I have an AWESOME news to share with you all!
After keeping it a secret for so long I can share with you guys.
The most amazing thing to have happen in 2016, that one E-mail. A very important one!

Can you believe this?!!!
I was invited to join the Altenew Card Design Team!!
WOOT WOOT!
Let's break into a dance, shall we?!

I am SO honoured and absolutely thrilled (read- going crazy doing the happy dance) to be part of this amazing design team!

I have shared my love for this company way too many times in the past so you all know how excited I must be right now!
I wanted to shout it out from the rooftop! For real.
You can check the announcement HERE on the Altenew blog,

To celebrate I have a card to share with you today.

I will be giving away this card to one of you!


Altenew Peony Bouquet pencil colored using Faber Castell classic pencils and Label Love stamp. @Altenew by @pr0digy0

I used the Peony Bouquet and Label Love stamp sets. I stamped the flowers using Ruby Red Crisp Dye Ink. The flowers are coloured using Faber Castell classic pencils. My Prismacolor arrives next week, I will try this background again!
I hope you like it! 

I am over the moon excited to start this journey, it is a dream come true!
I have not stopped pinching myself!
Every few days it hits me and I am like "I can't believe I am part of Altenew. Crazy."

Thank you very much for stopping by! Wish me luck!

You have till 28th January to leave a comment. I will contact the winner via email.
