My Manga Girl & My Exciting News!!!!!!!!!

Good evening all my lovely friends. Welcome to my 2 new followers thank you soooo much for being here if you leave a comment I will come over to your blog as I always like to thank people & follow them.
First I want to tell you my exciting news cus I really cant keep it in any longer!! About a month ago I got a surprise e-mail off the lovely Donna who owns Bearly Mine she was e-mailing me to ask me if I wanted to be on a DT & when she told me which DT......well I danced, hopped & really got jiggy with it....I cant believe still now they have asked me. I will give you a clue they use my fave digi' is my fave digi image shop ever & they also do rubber stamps too.
All of my dreams in blogland have come true I work with the best teams & the best rubber & images & with some of the most talented people who I look up to soooo much.
Well I will compose myself now & show you my card. I only got to play tonight as this afternoon I realised that my last 6 cards I hadnt made boxes for & they were sitting on my shelf in my bedroom lol. So this afternoon I made a batch of boxes lol.
Here is another stamp that has finally seen ink, well I inked it last week.....this stamp however I've had over 7 months......bowing head in total shame as I type......

Yes I've made a fancy edged card again....I am so loving making these lol.
This is Manga Girl 2 available here  & she has been coloured with Copics.
The centre flower & pink Bakers Twine is from Crafty Emma's & everything else is from my stash.

Paper is from Etsy, digi download & matted up with grey card.

The box I make for most of my cards if there is a chance things will get a bit squashed.

Thank you to everyone who has commented on my fancy edges. I have had a few e-mails asking which punch I use. For all my cards I use 300gsm A4 card so the card is too thick for punches really. I use metal border dies to make the fancy edges, the Whiff Of Joy dies are perfect & fit perfectly the width of my card which are usually 15x15cm. Here is the one I've used for this card.
Well thats it from me I'm off to catch up on some blog-hopping while waiting for my daughter to go sleep......a clonk on the head just doesn't work of course lol.
Thank you for stopping by & thank you for taking time to leave me a comment I really do appreciate every single one.
See ya soonies peeps loves ya loads.
Challenges I'm Entering.......
