Good afternoon  to all my lovely friends and  followers. I want to give a special welcome to my three new followers, Jim, Wendy and  Darnell I am delighted that you have decided to follow my blog and hope that you continue to enjoy my blog posts.

Before I show you my card I have some exciting news to share. A couple of weeks ago out of the blue I received and amazing email from Doris at Crafting by Designs asking me if I would like to join their design team. You will recall I did a Guest Designer spot for them in March but never in a million years did I expect anything like this to happen. I have accepted and will start my first projects later this month so watch this space. if you are interested in looking at the site this is the link Crafting by Designs

Now for my card I made this awhile ago as we are going to a posh wedding in London on Friday and  this is the card I've made to give to Dave and Kathey for their Wedding Day on Saturday.
