A Lovely Invite

I had a surprise email from Kirstie Sleight, Editor of Cardmaking & Papercraft earlier in the week asking if I would like to join her Team of Card designers. I have to admit that I was thrilled at the request, of course my loyalties are to Imag-e-nation & La Pashe who will still be my main employer.

So after a chat with my employer (Gary) I agreed to join Kirstie's Team. I'm so excited at this new venture, I hope I can fulfill their expectations.

No rest for the wicked my recreation time will be very busy now.

I am as I write fully booked for February and have promised myself nothing more for this Month lol!

I have just finished preparing for a 2 hr show Sunday at 2pm on Ideal World Launching the next range in decoupage for La Pashe and I know they have some great prices planned so try not to miss the show Sky Chanel 644 Freeview 22.

The following week I have the trade show 3 days hard work.

I have just completed my first assignment from Cardmaking & Papercraft and another to prepare.
