My First Challenge

Well here goes, I'm finally having a go at entering a challenge.  I am making this for the One Stitch At A Time  Christmas Club and the theme is As You Like It.  Hope I've set up that link ok being the first time I have ever done this.  I thought it was a great idea to be making Christmas Cards throughout the year as I always leave them till the last minute.  My resolution this year was to start them in August so now I will be ahead of schedule.  After packing away all my Christmas stash I got it all out again (obviously) to make this card.

What I Used
White A5 cardstock
Papers from stash (can't remember where I got them as I've had them so long)
Free present stamp image from a craft magazine coloured with my new Promarkers
Stamped sentiment from freebie
Ribbon and gems from stash.

What Happened To January!

Where has this month gone, so much for me blogging every couple of days!  After we got New Year out the way I was tidying up all my Christmas Card making stuff, then the horrible housework after the tree came down, then back to work.  So hopefully now that I'm a bit more organised (maybe), I will be able to do more cards.

A New Year!

Welcome to my new blog.  I had hoped to post this on January 1st but didn't quite manage it, only half an hour or so late though.  I have decided to start a blog to hopefully give me the incentive to do more craft projects and take part in some challenges that I've seen on other blogs.  I am also working on a website to try and make a wee bit money to be able to buy more crafty stash.

I was in my element on Christmas Day as I got Tim Holtz idea-ology papers, they are just scrumcious and almost too good to cut up.  I also got Distress Ink pads so looking forward to having a play with them.  I only had one beforehand and luv them, so easy to use.  Also very happy as I got Hobbycraft vouchers from my Dad, looking forward to choosing some goodies with them. Right, I'd go as I've had an exhausting day, cooking another turkey dinner.  Sorry, I haven't any pics to add to this post as it is a tad late.  It also looks like I have to change the timezone!!
