Exciting announcements ...... with Clarity Stamp

Bonjour......How is everyone ??
Firstly apologies for the time lapse since my last blog - been a touch under the weather again grrrrr I really think its time I was rubbed out and redrawn LOL !!! 
Anyway, I hope you are mostly enjoying a pleasant weekend and getting lots of crafting being done :-)
It has actually been a VERY exciting time round here this week.......things coming to fruition and a couple of other things simmering nicely!
Those of you who are regular followers will know I just lurrrrrve using Clarity stamps (some of my clarity ATC's can be seen here ) and this week I have been super bursting with happy smiles !!!
I have been invited to join Claritystamps BRAND NEW CHALLENGE DT !!!!!! Giddy honoured I was especially when I saw the fabulously talented team I will be working with - awesome !!!!
So yesterday I got round to playing .......
...... with the fandabby new funky trees, some of the brand new CHA release spellbinders and seedless preserve distress stain as a watercolour. With todays cards I really wanted to keep them all simple and clean lined.
Then I picked up the latest stamp from Barbara's monthly design club - a celtic tile - and got very carried away hahahaha - good job I am not eating at the moment lol !!!
I came up with this little pattern build/decopage number and then I combined it with the funky houses and home stamps
                                                                                              The patterned hexagons on this card are created using rolled babywipes inked up with two or three colours next to each other and then swiped in opposing diagonals across glossy coated cardstock. Great for co-ordinating bespoke backgrounds ....  
                                                               The celtic tile on this one was used to just subtly infill the "O" in Home.
After all this distraction I FINALLY got around to what I should of been doing !!!! My piece for the Challenge DT Blog.......something TOTALLY different. I really hope you all like it and all the other super projects when the challenge goes "live" on 1st March !!!
The link to this great new challenge is HERE .... so if you haven't already popped over to join now is your time ..... come and join in the fun!!
Right I have to go juggle a few more "spinning plates" of craftiness and I will be able to share even more great news in the next few weeks :-)
Enjoy what is left of your weekend folks
Stay safe and warm ( more white stuff on its way! )
Love and hugs
