A little note....... to say...........

I have a new job.................

Morning everyone

I am soooo excited to let you in on my news that i have a new job with Crafters Companion and how appropriate was this card that i am posting today.  It wasn't planned at all but now as Sara has shared the news with platinum members of CC i though i better make an announcement.

My official job title is Trade Associate and i am mainly working with Claire in the trade department.  However another part of my role is co-ordinating the Design Team work with Leann and Ideal World TV preparation.  And i have to say i am loving all of it, how lucky am i to have been given this opportunity..........  And i know you already know this but every single one of the CC team are such lovely lovely people as too are the Design Team Members.

My card today is 'A little note' from the SWALK range and all of the DT have been working on the new launch of 12 stamps using spectrum noirs but we also decided to use some of the previous well loved swalk images and give them a bit of a make over with speccies.  I have used backing papers from the SWALK CD ROM 2 and have used the colouriser to co-ordinate with the dark reds of the coloured image.  I'll not share the exact colours with you as they are on the CD Resource that Leann is launching as part of the Pick of the Day on Ideal World at 9pm on Tuesday night.

There has been so much work involved in preparing for the shows and i think i am starting to get the hang of it, just mind you. Leann and I are travelling down to the TV on Tuesday afternoon and i will be behind the scenes in the studio helping her set up.  How exciting, I just love it................ I must give myself a pinch to see if i am still asleep and dreaming.........  Nope I'm not dreaming, i think i might hyperventilate........... or SQUEEAAAALLLLLLL like Ali Watson

 I have also used a darice music embossing folder as part of the background as it matches perfectly with the theme and the little notes on the main image are part of the little extra stamps that come with the main image. I cannot find the embossing folder on the CC website though so i am not sure if it is out of stock currently.

Don't forget to watch the shows on Tuesday and Wednesday and also have a go at entering the competition on the Crafters Companion news blog to win the stamps and CD.  Sara has just posted a couple of her demo cards for the TV too so you can get a sneak peek of them here.  She is sooo proud that Leann asked her to take part in the preparation for the shows as its showing her speccie colouring is improving, not that it wasn't any good before boss................

You can also pop over to Leanns blog if you would like another chance to win the full set of new stamps and cd as she has managed to obtain them for a give-away.

If you are interested in looking at some more of the gorgeous SWALK samples the DT have made i have listed all of their blog details below as they have made some stunning cards.
