WAIT! I am getting ahead of myself...let's go back a few months to November 1st, 2013... It was a sad, sad day when the Fusion Card Challenge Blog announced it was closing it's doors. :( I loved that challenge sooooo much! The idea of having options for the challenge, working from the sketch OR the image or better yet, combining two things into one to achieve the perfect balance- FABULOUS! Not only that, but any challenge blog designed by Lesley Croghan is simply top notch. They are always professional, with the best graphics and fun challenges! I am in awe of how she maintains various challenge blogs while working her full time job! So it was a heart-breaker to hear that the challenge was closing.
But then there was a outpouring of love from this fabulous crafty community asking Lesley not to close down the blog and guess what?! She decided to reopen AND do a DT call ta-boot! (I am channeling all you wonderful Canadian crafters out there- ha!) Well, I gotta tell you this is one opportunity I wasn't going to miss out on! I never imagined being picked as a DT member, but I had to throw my hat in the ring. Well here I am today to tell you that I am part of the new Fusion Card Challenge DT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Umm.... can you pinch me so I know this is for real?!?
Needless to say, It is going to be so amazing to be working with Lesley, Danielle (the new manager) and all the other fabulous ladies on the team! You just HAVE to head over to Fusion to see all the amazing gals on the team! Oh... and, come back again on Thursday for the first challenge of 2014!
Now, before you go, I don't want to leave you with out anything crafty (other than my news!!!!)... so here is a look back at 13 (+1 for good measure!) of my fave cards from 2013. So, buckle up buttercup, here comes a trip down memory lane.
...and last but not least, that plus 1 to make 14 (I call that one to grow on!)
Feel free to tell me which was your fave card for the year, of these or others that I didn't review.
Thanks so much for visiting and Happy New Years to you! Be safe and happy as you ring in 2014!!!!!
