I wish Shaz and the team the best of luck as they build on recent success and I hope stepping down will give me more time to concentrate on developing my designs so that I will soon be looking for a DT of my own.
In the meantime, here are some of my creations using the 'Basics' collection: and a slide show of some of my other Funky Fairy makes:

Voila mes cartes pour le challenge sketch de « Sheetload of Cards » et le sujet ‘Noël en juillet’ donc j’ai commencé mes cartes de Noël bien tôt ! J’ai utilisé des dessins de le CD Kerudoc Création ‘Hiver’ qui j’ai imprimé sur papier et acétate. Quel couleur vous préférez ?Last month I discovered a great ezine 'Sheetload of Cards' blog and when I downloaded this month's it just demanded I do something with it and in fact I did 2 things which are unusual for me: 1. I printed the whole thing off and had it sitting on the desk instead of just being saved on disk to maybe look at later (great designs in there); 2. I made Christmas cards before November ! I usually find it hard to create out of season but wow did I make sheetloads! I printed off several papers and toppers and just mixed and matched to the same sketch adding ribbons and gems, inking edges, etc as I went. No waste bits of paper and lots and lots of cards...Which is your favourite colourway? I really like the soft Lilac :and the Teal (love the velvet ribbon too)and a few more mixing colours and patterns:My husband likes the organza ribbon over the paper in the one above, and here's an acetate version:and then I looked at the mini version ezine this month and made one of those too!All papers and toppers from Kerudoc Création Winter Collection; HOTP Icy rainbow ribbons colour match perfectly, as do Brilliance pearlescent inks in SkyBlue and Purple. Also used ribbons and card from stash, Papermania snowflake brads and adhesive gems, Silver ink pad, cuttlebug embossing, Holographic glitterglue.

Anyway, all the above made it extra special to receive comments on my blog and especially this award from both Donna and Heather (who also has candy here) .
The rules that go with this award are: 1. You must nominate only 5 people. 2. Four of those people are to be dedicated followers of my blog. 3. The fifth person is someone new or relatively new to my blog and should live in another part of the world. 4. You must link back to the person who gave you the award. Now this is the difficult bit...who do I choose... I'll edit tomorrow with the choices, and some cards I made today.

I have created this card using 'Basics' papers with stitched ribbon and the hand-stitched A5 folder using 'Funky meets Shabby Chic' with a Magnolia stamp.
J'ai placé le défi challenge Funky Fairy de cette semaine : Couture- vrai ou Faux. Cela donne un bon variété pour des cartes ou d'autres grands projets. L'équipe ont fait une gamme des choses ainsi vont voir sur le blog Funky Fairy Challenge : Vous avez 2 semaines à joindre le challenge et vous pouvez gagner. J'ai créé cette carte en utilisant des papiers «Basics» avec le ruban piqué et ce classeur A5 main-piquée en utilisant des papiers «Funky meets Shabby Chic» avec un tampon de Magnolia.

That’s me in the local paper last Saturday: There’s lots of interest in my designs focused on the local area and its traditions. I completely forgot to share it before!

The reason for the candy? I have set-up my own company, Kerudoc Création, and officially become a self-employed crafter and designer as of today! Regulations here in France mean it is illegal for me to sell to shops and even restricts how many craft fairs etc I can do without setting up a business so here I am with my cards now on display in the local shops and orders rolling in! Everything I wanted to get done is behind schedule so I will keep adding to the news and show you some designs as time and events allow!

The 3 papers are from my Winter / Hiver CD collection found in my eBay shop here. The images and sentiments are from Stampin' Up and coloured with water-colour pencils.
This card is following the sketch on Poetic Artistry - Mojo Monday using Funky Fairies new Shabby Chic papers. I really love both the new collections.
And don't miss a look at the Funky Fairy Inspiration blog at the previewed "Moo've Me" stamp: She's a saucy moo and if you make a card in the same theme you have a chance of winning her before the launch date!
