First card of 2010

I hope everyone enjoyed their new year celebrations.  We had a night in with a lovely meal, nice wine, played Mario Cart on the Wii and then toasted in the new year in our back garden watching all the local fireworks going off.  It was the first new years eve night that we can remember where we haven't gone out to a party, pub or held a party oursleves, and you know what, we really enjoyed it being just the two of us with Mollie and Felix of course.  We still didn't end up going to bed until 4 a.m. mind...lol.

Despite the late night/early morning I was up and about just before 9 a.m. and raring to get back in my craftroom after it's use as a spare bedroom over xmas.  And I was so looking forward to making something other than an xmas card, though I will do as I did last year and endeavour to create at least one xmas card a week, but I may just leave it a week or two before I get started...lol.  Now onto the card.....

This card covers 3 challenges



The three challenges are....

Sketch and Stash - Sketch and to use new and/or neglected craft stash

My Time To Craft - Anything Goes

Creative Card Crew - Anything Goes and DT Call

My new/neglected stash is my new but very neglected Lili of the Valley stamp I bought at the NEC in November, I've also used some vellum which has been extremely neglected for the scalloped edge and image mount.

RECIPE


Paper - Crafts Too

Vellum - Kanban

Colouring Medium - Promarkers and Copics

Digi-Sentiment - Pollycraft

Embellishments - Flowers and Card Candy from stash.

Punch - MS Frond Leaf and MS Scalloped Dot

New Blog On The Block!!!

My 9 year old niece Emily has just started up her own little crafting blog with the help of her mum (Mel), if you have a few minutes spare I know she would love it if you would stop by and say hi.  I hear she has been busy crafting and hopefully later today she will be uploading some pics of her makes.
