Before I mention our new challenge, I would like to say 'Thanks and Goodbye' to one of our wonderful DT Ladies.... Tammy, who has been with us for nearly 2 years and unfortunatley is having to step down...  we wish you all the best Tammy and we are going to miss you.

Our wonderful sponsor for today's challenge is 


We would like to say "THANKS" to Andrea from Sheep Ski Designs
for kindly supplying all the digital stamps used on the DT cards.

Here's a bit about me and my shop...
Andrea Norris, unknown artist - Living in Leeds, Yorkshire in the UK, working full time as a Management Accountant and currently working on 4 design teams.  I'm a dancer (Argentine Tango and Ceroc) and a competitive badminton player.  It's amazing that I've managed to squeeze drawing into my schedule as well as being an obsessive crafter and creator of cards.  I have no actual style as yet but do love the unusual and quirky.  I may be known for producing cards in soft pastel colours.  I love anything arty.  I've always drawn stuff, for as long as I can remember.   In my younger days I sold a few watercolour paintings.  I recently found mixed media which is a joy and love creating canvases with flowers.  I've had a battle with digital drawing for about a year and finally found some software I can gel with in January 2016.  Recently one of the challenge teams I worked on was short of a designer's images to create with so I drew some.  Then people kept asking me for my drawings.  So I thought what the heck let's open a shop and give something back to the crafting world, to the lovely ladies who have supported me on my journey.  Welcome to my world, we're only at the beginning and I have so much more to offer.  Andrea x
