Lili Of The Valley Guest Design Spot...

Morning folks...I was thrilled when the lovely Anne invited me to do a Guest Designer Spot for the month of September over at Lili Of The Valley's Ideas to Inspire Blog...a bit speechless to be honest...but very honoured...excited and nervous all at the same time and once the news had sunk in...the cubbyhole went into "no pressure then" panic mode overdrive.  I'm sure you can guess why...they have a fabulous mega talented design team who create beautiful works of art and I'm definitely not a cute and girly crafter for the simple reason I'm a bit pants at all that detailed colouring blending thing...never quite mastered it. I'm a great believer in "don't try to be what you're not" so I'm sticking with my inky grungy style of crafting for my first card using beautiful Vintage Style Grunge Stamps along with Tim Holtz fabulous Distress Inks.


I'll be back at 8.00am with my card for this month's challenge over at Penny Black Saturday
