Woohoo ! I'm a Besties DT member, Blog hop and freebie!

This post will stay at the top until the blog hop is over,
please scroll down for other posts

Woo hoo! I'm on the Besties Design team, I am still having to pinch myself to make sure that I am not dreaming, I may have mentioned one or twice (or more LOL!) how much I love the images, and now to be part of the design team, it really is like a dream come true.
With all the new DT members we now have two teams and will take it in turns to host the challenge, I am on team A and this week the theme is......

Mother's Day or Thank You.

You are welcome to use any Digi or Rubber Stamped Image
from any stamping company for the next 2 weeks. 


Here's my card

To celebrate the new design team members we are having a blog hop.
Everyone has some candy to give away as well as a fabulous Bestie rubber stamp,
Its so easy to play along all you have to do is...
