Guest Designer....

I found a new challenge blog - A La Card Monkey - the other day, as I had a heap of "stuff" on my desk & had not yet cleaned up, thought I would play along.  The blog has been going for some time, but new to me.  This is the card I created & suprise, suprise, I ended up being "The Princess" for the challenge.  How great is that.

As part of being selected "Princess", I, in turn am a Guest Deisgner for one of their upcoming challenges & it just happens to be this week.

This is the sketch we had to use.  Part of the challenge is we had to use something which represented "Memories".  To me, happiness always brings back happy memories!

I had only just received a new stamp set the morning I was asked, so of course I had to use it.
