Some very exciting news and some very sad news!

So I will start off with the sad news this is my last challenge with The Squirrel and The Fox as the Challenge blog is saying goodbye...for the moment anyways.

This fortnight's and final Challenge is Happy Birthday and it is sponsored by the most awesome The Paper Shelter.  Here is my DT card for this challenge using the image called 'The Pastry Chef'

Well this seems quite fitting as I found out this week...this is my very exciting news....that I have made it into The Paper Shelter's Design Team.  Yeah.

My first Challenge with The Paper Shelter will be the 1st of October so make sure you stop by to check it out!

Well that's it for me for today so...

The Paper Shelter DT call

I was sooo excited today when I saw that The Paper Shelter were having a Design Team Call...I wanted to leave work (but couldn't) to get an entry in!

So I am finally home and ditched my responsibilities to get my application in.

(Added  17/9/14)

Now this is were I tell you I made a second card for the call as I started getting a little nervous about my first I really want to be part of the team.

So here is my final submission using The Paper Shelter's 'Patissier In Distress'

  And as I didn't have the heart to take this down completly this was my original submission

I have used a digital image from MilkCoffee called 'Girl with a Rose Hair Clip' digital image; now I just have to leave it up to the powers that be to see if I make the grade.

Wish me luck as I soooo want to be part of this team.
