Willow Sketchie: 23rd August DT Card

Hello, it's Thursday and welcome to a brand new challenge at Willow Sketchie!

This week it's my turn to host the challenge and today is a very sad day, as after 14 months on the DT I have made the decision to step down from the team.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank Sharon for having me as one of the first DT members, she has been an absolute pleasure to work with and I will see you again at the NEC later this year!  I would also like to thank Hazel, our DT Co-ordinator for all her support and hard work (but it's not goodbye as I am on another challenge with you!) and to the rest of the lovely ladies - I will still be stopping by and visiting you!

So enough tears and onto my challenge - I have chosen:


This is a great chance to start making those Christmas cards!
