Morning Crafty Pals and thank you so much for stopping by my blog today
I've some super exciting news to tell you and pretty much my best Christmas pressie
... and it's not even the 25th yet!

This HUGE secret has been kept tightly under my hat for a few weeks and I won't lie ... 
it's been pretty tough! but now I can 'let the cat out of the bag'

From January I will be joining the super duper talented DT at Uniko Studio
I am literally fit to burst and can't wait to get stuck in 
Having had a fantastic experience in the Summer as a GDT for Uniko
 this opportunity is a dream come true and a great honour 

Thank you to the lovely Beverley and her Design Team for inviting me
and I'm so looking forward to working alongside you.

Quick edit here as I should also have introduced my fellow
newbie on the DT; Deborah from Deborah's Gems
I'm so thrilled to be working alongside Deborah and looking
forward to getting to know her better.

If you follow my blog regularly you'll know 
I LOVE Uniko Studio products and try to use them where I can.
Here's 2 cards using some of the latest products from the November release.

This one uses Rustic Christmas;
sentiment heat-embossed in silver sparkle and
the tree in white EP with a distress-inked backdrop.
To finish some gems from my stash

Here I've cut a frame using a die from my stash
stamped around the edge using the 
Background Builders: Vines Winter Additions
Sentiment: Simply Said Christmas
Flowers from Flower Power 1: heat-embossed 
in red and fussy cut with a mini pearl to the centre

I'm looking forward to sharing lots more inspiration using these 
sets in the coming weeks and if you can pop back tomorrow
I'll have some more on show in my Less is More post.

Happy crafting.
