Mixed bag...........

........of bits this morning and I will save the best till last ;))

First up, I have done the little extra midweek dare from DCM and enjoyed it again. This is what is required this week Fee Fi Fo Fum.....For our Little Extra challenge this week, we'd like you to "Go Faux it" Yes, all we want you to do this week is to use something fake on your cards. For instance you could make fake ribbon, fake brads or fake chipboard - we think you talented folk can come up with lots more "let's pretend" ideas so we can't wait to see your ideas.
I have used faux stitching, faux ribbon, faux brads and faux diamonds!
My next piece is a challenge from Sue over on the Just Bex forum We had to
I think this may be hard?? but a little different?? what we want you to do is MAKE/CREATE a pressie for a child...maybe your own or a neice or nephew or one to sell on your craft tables. You can use ANY medium you fancy
This is what I came up with
Closed Front and back covers (idea taken from the maze books)

Inside with part word cards. The instructions are stuck onto the front of pockets. Instructions and small cards have all been laminated.

All the words from the pockets. Days of the week are blue and months are green. I used this a lot when I worked at school. I can be made more difficult by making the cards all one colour!

And now for the best bit..............I am now officially on the design team for Debbi Moore and I am just so excited. I've been sat on this news for about 2 months but seeing as I got a call this morning saying that I should have my first kit by the end of the week, I thought it would be ok to tell everyone. :))
