One for Fun

Please scroll down or click HERE to enter my Thank You blog candy - Open until December 30th!

Good Morning All!

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend! We had a lovely Christmas and Santa spoiled us good! And yesterday we were snowed in with a blizzard so everything is white and pretty! Now getting back into the normal routine, well that is taking some time! lol

I did do some crafting yesterday, it felt good to get crafty. My resolution this year will be to take a few minutes each day and do something for me - hopefully crafting. We'll see if I can stick to that! What are your resolutions this year?

Elisabeth Bell is holding a GDT call for her digital stamp line and I love her stamps, so I thought I would make a card and give it a shot. It's been a long time since I've tried out for a design call, but I want to get motivated in the New Year to do more with my crafting so I thought this was a good way to start!Plus it was fun just to create a card for fun.

This is my card using the digital image "Ginnie, Gliding with Butterflies" isn't she sweet! I was in the mood for a non-Christmas card and a chance to use some new Bo Bunny papers. The papers have been stitched on the sewing machine and then I used the sketch from the Digi Bells DT call. There were two options for the sketch and I think this one fit the image better. I've printed the image on Neenah paper and then colored with Copics. The card has been embellished with sticky gems, ribbon, and flowers with some gem stamens.

This card also fits some challenges:
My Time to Craft: Brand New (this digi is new)
Die Cut Dreams: Girlie
Allsorts: Anything Goes

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope you have a great Tuesday!

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response - almost 600 so far !

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the holiday preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year.

Have you entered my new candy
