It's All new!

Hi Everyone

I was so excited to find a comment left on my blog letting me know that I had been placed 2nd at Crafty Boots Challenges.  With a placement comes a Guest Designer Spot, so here I am today!  Thank you to Dionne and the team for having me join them for this challenge.

The Theme is Ribbon or Lace and there is still a week or so to go so please come on over and join in with the challenge.  If you get a place it could be you that is being a Guest Designer!

I decided to go with the Ribbon bit of the theme.  I recently discovered a couple of new (to me) artists on Etsy and I just had to buy up some of their images.  The Image I have used for this card is called Plush Rabbit with Flowers and you can find it here along with some other amazing cute images in the Etsy shop called Astafieva.  I bought another image along with this one and I cannot wait to colour and make it into something.

If you are a regular to my blog you will know that 1) I don't usually chat much but I wanted to explain why this post is called It's All New!  The card blank is a new shape to me, the Helz Cuppleditch Paper is a new pack for me and the Image is a newly discovered artist to me and 2) I have my Mum and Mother-in-Law's Birthdays both in March and of course its usually Mother's Day around this time too so I like to get started on their cards for these occasions early.  This card is for my Mum's Birthday, she likes cutesy animals so this was the perfect image for her.  I coloured the image using ProMarkers and used a Clear Star Gelly Roll Pen to add some Sparkle to the Flower and the Bows.  I bought  this card blank at the Nec back in November and have been waiting for something special to come up to use it.  I got a pack of three so two more to go but will be making a template of it before I run out as I really love it!  One of my Crafting New Years resolutions is to use and make different shaped cards from the Rectangular ones I seem to do most of!  My Base/Frame Layer is a Bazzill Basics Bright Pink Colour and the Patterned Paper is from the Helz Cuppleditch Fun Fair Paper Pack.    Again it's the first piece that I have used from the pack and there are some truly great designs in there! I used my X-Cut Rounded Corner Punch to round off the edges. I cut two Memory Box Precious Hearts Die and the Sentiments are all from Stampingallday which I stamped up using a Memento Tuxedo Ink Pad.  I used an Organza Pink Ribbon which has a Silver Glitter Thread running through it.  To finish I added Pink Pearl Gems.  I am so pleased with how this turned out (even if I do say so myself lol!!)

Thank you for stopping by my blog today and sharing this card with me.  I hope you like it.  I would love it if you would leave me a comment and if you are not already please follow my blog and see if I keep up my New Years Resolutions.  I am not doing too badly so far I don't think.  I have made this one and a Criss Cross Card which I haven't done before so I have got off to a good start lol!  I am buying up some new Frame Dies so that should also help me on my way!  Thanks again and Hope to see you again soon.
