Something New

Picture 006c copy

Morning lovely peepers and hope you are all OK today and not too blown away by the terrible weather we had yesterday.

Chester got away lightly although there was really heavy rain first thing but when I saw the news and saw what other places had been like, it was nothing at all. Hope all is well for you anyway xxx

So over to the jolly old US of A today and time to catch up with the Simon Says Stamp Challenge. Our theme today is

Something New

and as this is quite a common theme this week, it’s a great opportunity to bit of challenge combining :)

Talking of new, do you like this …..

… it’s our brand new voucher design and I think it’s so sweet.

And of course the lucky winner will get to spend it ….

… in the store :)

This week, the DT are showcasing Cuttlebug products but of course you don't have to. But if you have them, why not get them out and have a go:)

So this is my card and I went for a Magnolia image – this is Lace Jeans Tilda (I think she’s a bit of a cheeky monkey this one!!) and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E11, E21, R11 – R20 - skin

E41, E42, E43, E50 - hair

C00, C1, C5, C7, R05, R17, R27, R59 – clothes etc

The papers I used are these ….


.. and they are from a Basic Grey Little Black Dress  6 x 6 Paper Pack

*Basic Grey LITTLE BLACK DRESS 6 x 6 Cardstock Paper Pack 3494

Verrry delish me thinks!!!

I had a little fiddle here – just to do something different really, and I cut one of Lord Tim of Holtz’s Tattered Florals Dies, topped it with a white Prima Flower then made a rolled flower from a small Nestie circle. Oh and I popped a little Hero Arts Gem which I’d coloured  in the centre to cover up the Glossy Accents I’d used to stick it together (that stuff is AMAZING – even Moses couldn't part it once it’s stuck !!!)

The Cuttlebug Folder I used is I think one that most of us have cos it is so useful and it is of course the Swiss Dots Folder. I like this one because it isn't too fussy and the pattern goes with just about everything really.

So there we are done for today.

I’ll be back tommorow with a card that I literally have just finished so no sneakie peekies to share,  but it’s one of those cards that I am quite pleased with - it doesn’t happen THAT often – AND I did something I never did before as well (no, it wasn't that I didn’t make an mistakes cos there’s bound to be one or two lol!!). 

So tune in tomoz and all will be revealed.

Till then, have the fabbiest of January days, stay warm and dry, and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
