Oooh I'm so proud of Ooh La La and my bestest crafting friend has some blogaversary candy on offer too.

Well, what a boring match that was to sit and watch last night!  What a let down.  Let's hope they actually play football next Wednesday eh??
So, good job I had today to look forward to wasn't it.  Something to lift my spirits and lighten my mood.  Today Ooh La La had a debut show on Create and Craft to showcase two of their CD's, namely Watercolour Memories and Shoes in Bloom, both available from the Ooh La La Store.  The Design Team had all made some cards and other items to be showcased on this mornings programme and let me tell you the display of cards looked fantastic.
Imagine my surprise and total joy when Nigel picked up a Waterfall card I had made from the Watercolour Memories CD and it actually worked.  I sat there hoping and praying it wouldn't fall to pieces - phew what a relief.  One of my Shoes in Bloom cards was also on top of the pile of cards that Nigel picked up to showcase Shoes in Bloom too.  Oooh I am so proud that Wendi, Emma and Anne asked me to be part of the Ooh La La Design Team - I am one tickled pink girl this morning let me tell you!!  So in case you missed the show here are the cards I made for it:
If you saw the show you will know that Shoes in Bloom sold out and Watercolour Memories sold 75% of the stock too.  Well done Wendi and Emma and thanks for giving us such fantastic products to work with.  I'm just off to send an email now to Wendi - please, if you saw the show, let Wendi know what you thought - I know she was really nervous. Here is a close up of the two cards that Nigel showed:

Now the second bit of exciting news - my bestest crafting buddy Ali, aka Dragonlady has some gorgeous Blogaversary Candy on offer.  It will be 12 months on 11th July since she began her blogging journey and I know that without her I wouldn't be a part of the fantastic Design Teams that I am, so thank you Ali from the bottom of my heart and many congratulations on your Blogaversary and DT places too!!!

  1. Oh wasn't it a good show and the sell out !!
    your cards looked fab , that waterfall card was was amazing (far to technical for me) and the colours of your shoe card looked wow on screen.
