Creative cottage's 1st challenge of 2011
Good morning to you and happy Wednesday !
Today see's the return of the creative cottage challenge after a little christmas break.
We are back with a great challenge for you chosen by the fabulous Sue. She has asked us to create something with the theme "new".
The possibillities are endless with this one - you can make a new year project, new baby, new home, job etc etc or you could use some new stash (did father Christmas bring you some ?) or a new technique the choice is yours - so no excuses for not joining in this week !
My card ticks several "new" boxes. Firstly it is obviously a new baby card but it also uses my new stamps (the B A B Y inside and also the sentiment on the front both of which are from my new Clearly Hand stamped set by Crafters companion) and I have also pledged (yes - a NEW years resolution) to try and finish my cards on the inside rather than waiting until I write in them and then hurredly stamp a sentiment inside - blowing on to it so it doesn't smudge when I put it in the envelope !!
That lovely blue DP is from the Summer mornings paper pack and available in the Creative cottage store here an absolute bargain at just £1.99 for 12 - yes 12 digi papers.
I would also like to add this card to the following challenges;
Crafty Hos Challenge Blog - Babies
The Crazy Challenge - All things new
Try It On Tuesday - New beginings
Woodware USA Clear Stamps - Use something new
Prairie Fairy Friday - New beginings
Pile It On - Brand spanking new
Thanks for looking - I hope you'll join in with us this fortnight at the creative cottage challenge blog
