Good Morning all and a Happy New Year to anyone I've not said it to already!! Do you like my new look blog? I did try changing it the other day but it all went a bit pear shaped, so I had to use one of the boring blogger templates until I had some time to mess about with it last night!
Now that all the festivities are behind us, it's back to my regular Design Team responsibilities and our first challenge of 2011 at Sunday Sketch and Stamp is a fabby sketch by the most lovely, Claire and here's my card:
I've used a beautiful digital image from The Stamping Boutique and coloured it with promarkers - and a bit of stickles on the wings!! The DP is Doodlebug Designs and has been in my stash for ages. I've used my cuttlebug and nesties to die cut the image panel and mat and I've also used a brand new marianne design 'designables', which, if you haven't already seen them are embossing folders which also cut some of the shapes out of the paper/card. Lastly, I've added a border cut with a Martha Stewart punch and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.
Before I go, I just wanted to update you on my Birthday Blog Candy!! Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to do the draw on Sam's birthday as we were too busy doing 'birthday things' and then that night he went to stay at his nan and grandad's (I think the lure of the xbox they bought him from christmas was too strong!!) and he only got back last night. So - everything permitting - the draw will be done later on today.
Right, well - I hope you've liked my first card of the new year! I'd love to hear if you've made any resolutions!! Bye for now......
