A New Layout, Some News, and Even a Card!

So, the layout. Everyone seems to be taking advantage of the new design option on Blogger, so of course, I had to too. Especially when I saw this gorgeous shade. (In case you hadn't noticed, I love some colours to a ridiculous extent.) I quite fancied the three column option too, so we'll see how it works out in practice.

And the news. I'm now a proud member of the One Stitch at a Time design team. The rest of the team seem very friendly and I'm looking forward to a new challenge.

And finally, a card.

The image is from The Crafty Pad at I Did It Creations, and it's currently available as a freebie for this week's challenge at I Did it Creations challenge blog. It's coloured with Promarkers, and the snow and and snowflake embellishment were made sparkly with Crystal Ice Stickles. The snowflake itself was sent to me along with an order from Dies to Die For, along with several others, which is definitely a nice touch.

The patterned paper is from a magazine CD and is by Debbi Moore while the creped paper is from my stash. I kept the design fairly simple because I kept the image size fairly big to show it off.

I'm also entering it for this weeks I Love Promarkers challenge which this week, is 'Bears'.
