Bright and Sunny!

This card is for:-

2. Colour Create - challenge 35 - Lemon and Lime + spring or summer flowers

3. Stampin' For The Weekend - "new Beginnings"

4. By The Cute And Girly - "new"

5. Cupcake Crafts - challenge 72 - "baby card"

6. Incy Wincy Designs - challenge 24 - Bling it up

Happy New Year, hope everyone had a good one. Have you all made New Year Resolutions, I have. I have decided I have such a small collection of stamps and the fact that some of the images you see me use are swaps, candies, prizes and some RAKs that my stamps need building up. Money is tight here so I'm lucky to get one a month when the hubby gets paid so that is my aim this year. I've already been trawling e-bay but sometimes with the postage it's not really much cheaper. So i'm concentrating on getting myself some stamps as my New Years Resolution. My favourites are Penny Black, Lili Of The Valley (new ranges) and Sarah Kay. I like my stamps to have quite a bit of detail and enjoy painting them with distress inks and H20's

Now onto my card, I really wanted to do Colour Create as the colour combo is so bright and sunny and with the weather we're having it will bring a bit of sunshine into my craft space. They want to see Lemon and Lime with an optional extra of spring or summer flowers. The sketch is from Papertake Weekly and I have rotated mine and instead of matting and layering the sentiment I put it directly on to my DP with embossing power in black sparkle. Stampin' For The Weekend and By The Cute And Girly has the theme of "new beginnings" and my card is a new baby card which is the theme for Cupcake Crafts. And finally Incy Wincy Designs want us to bling it up, so on my card I've used black sparkle embossing powder, stickles to the halo and wings and butterfly, and also gems and pearls.

I hope everyone is keeping warm, i'm dreading tomorrow, I have to face the cold as my three kids go back to school. But on the up side I get 2 1/2 hours to myself while the younget is at Nursery, mind you I nearly always end up ironing or some other house work.

Stay safe in all this ice and snow

Happy crafting
