What a Lucky Girl am I

Evening Everyone
I hope that you have been having a wonderful day.
I have been itching to share some fantastic and exciting news with you and now the time has come where I can.
The sneak peeks that you have been having recently on my blog of the fabulous new stamps from Woodware are because I was asked to make some of the samples for the new catalogue.
How lucky am I!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a mammoth task, and more than a little daunting when this huge parcel arrived, but I rose to the challenge, and I have to say that I have had soooo much fun.
So with out further a do I will share one of the samples. This one actually appears on the front cover, although their photography is far better than mine.
I did have a bit of a panic at one stage that my samples are so very different from the sort of thing that Jane and Francoise make, but I suppose that's just the point isn't it, to show just how versatile their wonderful images can be.
The background to this card was made using Coffee and a Pearlex Vintage Watercolour Pallet. I also used it to colour in the main image which was stamped and embossed using Sepia Versafine ink and clear embossing powder.
I did a bit of my usual decoupage with the Partridge and added some glossy accents.
I am so looking forward to getting hold of my hard copy of the catalogue. I'm old fashioned and I much prefer paper catalogues where I can sit drool over all the must have new stamps. I find them so much more user friendly than on line, but maybe that's just me lol.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Christmas in July
Addicted to Stamps - Christmas in July
Sentimental Sunday - Paint / Inks
2 Sisters Challenge - Christmas in July
Sugar Creek Hollow - Vintage Christmas in July
Off to bed now, perhaps to dream of all the new cards that I can share with you now.
Night, night
