Exciting News...Anything Goes Challenge Blog DT x

Good Morning Everyone !!
Today I have some very exciting news and a very apt thank you card.

I am really excited to announce that I have been invited to join the lovely ladies over at the 
For those that don't know the Anything Goes Challenge Blog belongs to Lynn who own's the Craft Den in Sheffield UK and is coordinated by Tamara with a team of 10 more ladies, now including ME !!, "we" have a fortnightly challenge with a theme to play along too.
Below is my very own DT badge which is now proudly displayed on the left side of my blog with all the lovely ladies and their blog's listed under it. 
Please pop over and see this weeks DT projects for Challenge #84 "Buttons and Bows" and enter into the fun too.
Stamps, punches and distress inks ruled today, my Expression sat very still and I'm sure he was sulking, definitely no chirping going on lol !!
I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page to make all the lacy layers and stuck them down with photo glue and Pinflair.
The stamps and Webster's papers suited the Spellbinder dies I used, everything is Inked Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Rusty Hinge, Tea Dye and Aged Mahogany. I used Rock Candy to crackle the sentiment but its not clear here on the pic - it's beautiful in real life very sparkly.
I absolutely love the tiny cotton reel stamp which I covered with deep embossing powder before I cut it out and added twine. I also embossed the pretty mannequin. There is a doily stamp in the background too.
Lovely buttons and bows complete my thank you card - made to say thank you to the lovely ladies at the Anything Goes Challenge Blog who have made me so welcome this week.
Many of the products used in my card are available at the Craft Den Craft Shop and Studio
Crafty Heaven !!
