HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Out with the old and in with the new!
The challenge this month at By The Cute and Girly is to create something to do with a New Beginning.
It could be a new Baby, a new job, a new Home, a new Love, a new School, anything you like!
And remember we want to see things other than cards as we have lots of prizes on offer each month! So make a scrapbook page, alter a book, arrange some flowers, bake a cake, whatever it is just take a photo and join in with the fun, you may just be the winner!
For this challenge I decided to make a couple of things.
Firstly for people moving into a New Home.
I found a wonderful little birdhouse to alter and made a matching card too!
Paper Play also had a New Beginnings theme
Stampin For The Weekend had a New Beginnings theme too
Mojo Monday had the sketch for the card
Crafty Angels wanted you to Try Something New. Well I've seen birdhouses completed, painted, papered etc but this is my 1st try at one.
The Digi Kitty had a free stamp of a bird and wanted you to use it.
I used Colorbok papes on both the birdhouse and card.
The card image is from the How Tweet Bird collection from Lily Boos and the bird on the house is freebie at The Digi Kitty
I colored both images with Copic's.
I added Prima flowers to both projects too.
Then for New Years
Simon Says Stamp had a Party theme
Everybody Art had a New Years theme
Paper Cutz also had New Years for the theme
Charisma had a Celebrations theme
Three Clovers also had a Celebrations theme
Our Creative Corner wanted to see "Food or Drink"
Stamp With Fun had a New Years theme
Sketch and Stash gave me the sketch
Hope Stamps Eternalhad some great Party Cupcakes for inspiration
Digital Ink had a New Beginnings recipe of gold or silver/gray or black and something glittery, ribbon, and incorporate some kind of distressing
Crafty Creations wanted Glitter and Bling for the New Year
For this card I used the super sweet Party Pippin which is the latest release from Wendy at Digital Delights. I colored him with Copic's and a gold Prismacolor pen.
The fabulous dp is from SEI and the gold textured cardstock from American Crafts.
The sentiment is from 7 Gypsies/
The flowers are Brides and the pearls are Queen and Co.
The border punch is Martha Stewart Deco Fan.
There are plenty of things this theme covers and I'd love to see you join in, the prizes are super!!!
Have fun and I hope you have a wonderful 2010!
