Hi all, yes you read the title description correctly I made it onto the new DT at 
I was thrilled to have been offered this chance to serve with such a talented group of people.
Our first challenge for the New Year is
This can be anything from using a mixture of old and new craft goodies, like I have, or wedding theme, engagement etc, etc.
Here is my debut card using the following new items
The rest of my elements have all come from my stash that i have had for quite some time.
The image I have used is called LILY and is available HERE I coloured her with Graph It Markers and Copics (skin Tones), the papers are LOTV both image and papers have been mounted onto black cardstock, I added the doily, flower pearls, satin ribbon bow, sentiment and Lily flowers.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

This post is scheduled so I will link you to the challenges a little later.
I do hope that you will come join us for our first challenge of the new year, for some wonderful inspiration please visit the rest of the DT you will not be disappointed.

I want to thank you all for visiting my blog and leaving me such amazing comments they have brought me so much joy, peace and I feel loved, thank you.

I will be visiting you all later but I have my mum staying with me a bit longer as my brother's girlfriends father died in the early hours of this morning so mum will be with me for the foreseeable future.  I have to take her home to get a change of clothes etc, so may be a little busy for a while but fear not I will be back very soon.

hugs to you all Lorraine
