Exciting news & a challenge

Ok first I will start with my exciting news, well I think I am a little more scared than excited, but I am excited all the same. My boss came over the shop whilst I was there on Wednesday and had a look at my new cards that I had made, as I put them in the shop for inspiration. She couldnt believe that they were so good (her words not mine). She then saw the Forever Friends samples I had made and was really chuffed with them. Now for the exciting part, she has only gone and asked me if I will demo at the shop,and do a different theme every couple of months. Now I love demo days as they are fab, but we always have a professional demonstrator in either from Docrafts or Trimcrafts. So I was highly honoured when she said that my creations were just as good as those that she has seen from these professional demonstrators. She also loved that I had been using bits & bobs from the haberdashery side of the shop on my cards, and how I have been decorating the insides. So i have agreed and do my first one on Sat 31st Jan (she doesnt like to hang on with things my boss), so I am as I said very excited and scared and hope that people will be interested. Now for the Challenge, the Roses on Paper Challenge blog have a colour theme this week which is White, Green & Purple, so after fetching the new Papermania collection papers this week I though I would use those as they fit the bill perfectly. Now I have done a cardnial sin with these,as we wont be getting them in from docrafts till the end of the month, and I so wanted them I went elsewhere naughty I know, but a girls goto have her stuff!!!.

The image is Tilda sent to me by the lovely Heidi, the papers are Papermania spring burst, Sizzix card stock and the fab flowers are from Poppicrafts which I got with the voucher I won from the lovely Dawny P. Ribbon from stash. I have also reused the sketch from A Spoon Full of Sugar blog which I really liked, and wanted to make another card using it.

The Inside

I have decorated the inside quite plainly, and the sentiment sq in the middle is actually one the the Notlets again from the Papermania spring burst collection.
