Love In Mono

Happy New Year And All The Best For 2012 To All My Lovely Blogging Buddies

Happy New Year to all of my blogging buddies, as it's the 1st of January it is also a new month for Sir Stampalot and Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you. At Sir Stampalot this month the theme is "Monochromatic". So I chose to do sepia colours (browns and creams), but my teamies have done some other lovely colours, It's really not as scary as it sounds so why not give it a try. We have sponsorship this Month from as always the wonderful Sir Stampalot, a Surprise Package.

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is also for the following challenges:-
1. I Brake For Challenges - Vintage
2. My Mum's Craft Shop - challenge 37 - Anything Goes
3. Craft Room - Anything Goes
4. Simon says Stamp - Anything Goes
5. Crafts & Me - challenge # 66 - Anything Goes
6. Joanna Sheen - Celebrations (my card is a celebration of love between a girl and her dog)

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny Black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is "Love & Hearts" So you can use anything with hearts, flowers and love for this challenge. We have great prizes as always, and you don't have to use a Penny Black stamp to join in, if you don't have one.

Are you wanting some inspiration, pop on over to the challenge blog and then you can see all the wonderful creations from the rest of the talented team.

This is also for the following challenges:-
1. Passion For Promarkers - week 129 - Celebrations
2. I ♥ Promarkers - challenge 97 - Anything Goes
3. Creative Inspirations Wednesday - Anything Goes
4. Just Tracy's crafts - Love is in the air

Stamps - Lili Of The Valley, Penny Black, Coupon stamp, polkadoodles butterfly,
Papers - from scrap box,
Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks (First card), Promarkers (second card),
Tools - Nesties, Cuttlebug, rose die, cricut hearts, border punch,
Embellishments - bow, feathers, brads, flowers, ribbon, lace, stickles,

Morning Tracy

Where do I start ? Two lovely creations, pink feathery effect for Valentines is just perfect and you know I love easel cards.

And the sepia tones of your PB card are very pleasing and the tag so different.

Happy New Year.
