Spesch Stamps Introduces "Engagement"

YAY - I made it onto Tracey's Spesch Stamps DT for the next few months - Yipppeeeeee. Not only do I think she's found some fabulous artists to design for her - but she's also a lovely lady and I wish her every success in her new venture!

I'm not due to start my DT spot until May but when Tracey sent us this image I couldn't help but colour it up and help her introduce it's release. I have an engagement to go to today of a young lady we've lived next door too for 17 years. Kate has always been a sweetheart and I'm soo happy that she's found someone spend her life with - you're a lucky guy James!

I decided every gal needs a ring with bling so I used my Gold Spica pen on the ring band and dazzling diamonds to make the stone sparkle -  you can see it better in the picture on the left. Some stickles on the flowers and the red rhinestones add some more bling to help celebrate this happy event.

When I asked my neighbour if she had any ideas for an engagement  present for Kate and James she told me they were saving for a new TV and would appreciate a gift voucher for one of the electronic stores so they could pool them together - EASY! I decided to incorporate a gift card holder into the inside of the card - just to make the presentation a little more special!

My sentiment is computer generated and the DP is - of course - from one of my Basic Grey paper pads - but I've forgotten which one - oops! I should have posted this on release day yesterday, but my neighbours know I blog so I didn't want to risk ruining the surprise! I've scheduled this to post as we are partying along next door - am sure I'm currently chatting someone's head off while sipping a champagne or two - LOL.

Because I'm posting this today I'm also going to enter this into this week's Totally Gorjuss Challenge - this week the theme is "Charming" - to use charms on your card.
