New Love


Can you Adam and Eve it I have just broken my New Years Resolution ….. Decided not to make the usual this year (diet, spend less money etc) – I’m sure you all get the picture …. my resolution was …. to start using less of the digital download papers and use more from my stash. I have DT papers all over the house (especially K & Co and Basic Grey just love them) but I bring them out, stroke, look and then put away again (sure I’m not the only one).

My first card for 2010 is for all these challenges:

Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge New

Lily-Boo Too Challenge Blog Valentine

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #64 New Beginnings

Rainbow Lady’s Challenge # 84 New

By the Cute and Girly – New

Crafty Ann’s Challenge #5 – New

Cute Daisy May ChallengeLove

The image is from Cute Daisy May Digi Stamps download, (by the way if you hop over now there is a New Year freebie up for grabs and she is gorgeous – please please please don’t forget to come back).

So far, this part OK, resolution still intact. The next part is where it gets broken….. wanted to use the colours of the Fussy and Fancy Blog….. can you believe it, after hunting ages through my stash could not find the bubble pinky papers I wanted. Hence went back to good old favourite Pink Petticoat. Quickest time I can remember for me to break my resolution….. ah well, get to keep my stash.

Printed image and then cut out with a cookie cutter, used my water colours pencils to colour. Got to use two of my new MS punches. Punched out two hearts and added a nestie label which I put through the printer to add the sentiment. Flowers, bauble and cord all from stash.

  16. Fabulous card Shirl, absolutely love the colours. I know only too well what you mean about the papers though, I’m not one for resolutions but this year I’ve made one to use up the card and paper I could stock a shop with but like you often find it difficult to get the colour I want from my not inconsiderable stash………….so resort to printing one off! It’s so good to know I’m not alone – thank you for joining us at Crafty Ann’s.
