Good morning all!
Today I'm displaying a card I've made for the challenge at  Friday Sketch Challenge # 76.
As a DT member, we are using the images supplied by FaeryInk and mine is Honey Latte Big Face Cute Coffee Girl .
This is the sketch to follow , designed by DT member Andreja Lampe.

I thought Coffee Girl would be ideal for this challenge! Bright and breezy image = bright and breezy colours!
There are lots of lovely images on the FaeryInk Etsy shop. Plus, there are lots of freebies available on the website too so...............what ya waiting for? ! Lol!!!

Here's my card :-

Items Used - 

Image supplied by FaeryInk
Martha Stewart lattice punch
Sentiment (Scriptalicious) from Pink Petticoat
Generic patterned paper and bling!

I hope you all have a fab weekend xxx

Things can only get better!!!

Good afternoon blogland!
Here at 'Crafty Towers' life continues to mooch along at a leisurely pace. Washing, ironing, cooking and son's work is never done!!!!!!!!!!!! Hahahaha, only joking - If he could get out of bed before noon now and again it might be easier for me to remember what he looks like :)
He who works should be home later after working in the Midlands this week and I really hope he's hungry because not only is it Friday, it's also CHIPPY TEA!!!!
Nothing wrong with a chippy tea once in a while and I'm looking forward to it!

Anyhoo, here I am blathering on when really I thought I'd quickly write a post and give you all my good news (hence the posts' title)! I am to be published in QCME magazine in October (with accompanying photo- oh dear :(.... (! ) and I am also to be contracted to show something in the Christmas issue (secret cannot be unveiled I'm afraid -----muahahaha!).
Isn't that just fab? !!!
Gotta be honest, I love what I do and I love being recognised for it too. Everyone needs a 'slap on the back' and a 'well done' now and again and I'm no different. When it comes to crafty stuff, I am very self critical so it means even more when my creations are thought of as good.

So, I can't put a pic of my creation for the Christmas issue on here until after Christmas, but, if you buy issue 132 of Quick Cards Made Easy (!) you'll find my mush looking back at ya probably on one of the farthest from the front pages!!!

What I do have is this bright card which I'm entering into the challenges at :
