Yay !!! Great News !!!

Hi Crafters,
I have been dying to reveal some exciting news that I have been sitting on for some weeks now... I was asked to join the 'As You Like It' Design Team! I am so honoured to be part of this fantastic team of crafty ladies and so here is my first official DT card for the challenge.
'Favourite Colour and Why'

Image - Whipper Snapper Designs Stamp - Good/Bad Santa
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Kanban Christmas Paper
Jus-Cutz Die - Decorative Shapes #6
Marianne Designs Bauble Die
Britannia Word Dies - Merry Christmas
Joy die - Snowflake
Ribbon and bows from Stash

Well, did you guess my favourite colour?

Red has always been my favourite colour, even when I was a little girl I always liked red things. I love the warmth and vibrancy of this colour and maybe I'm a little bit fiery by nature too, you'd have to ask my family about that :/

So back to the challenge, our sponsor is...

Sweet Pea Stamps

We would love to see what your favourite colours are but don't forget to tell us WHY it's your favourite too.
Please check out the fantastic projects from the DT ladies on the blog and then come and join us!
