Celebrating Something New
I'm baaaack - have you missed me :) It certainly was great having a break from blogging but the holidays were very busy indeed. I did have a lovely time though and got to visit with family and dear friends. Now we have lots of snow and cold temperatures so it is time to hunker down and craft, blog, work and sew.
The challenges are starting back up today at Sugar Creek Hollow and for this first one of the New Year we want you to make a vintage or shabby chic card or other paper-crafted project to Celebrate Something New. Your creation could celebrate the New Year itself or a new job, house, relationship, baby or anything else that is new.
I have created a card to celebrate the new home that a friend just moved into. I sure hope she doesn't see this because I haven't received her new address yet so I haven't been able to mail it.
For this card I decided to CASE a lovely card by my friend Sue Carrington at Stamping Sue Style but I already had the image and had it printed to use for this card. I made my flower from Buckram, which is a really stiff interfacing fabric and my Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the flourish is a Spellbinders die. I used lots of Distress Ink for this project so now have a pair of latex gloves in my craft room.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
