Happy New Year!!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a Jolly New Year!! Did you make any New Year's Resolutions?? Mine were to budget, spend my time more wisely, do more things for 'me' and stop trying to please everyone else, and finally to stop eating so much rubbish (hoping to stick to them all!!)

Anyway, I am here today with 2 challenge cards, the first being for the new Challenge at Sketch and Stash... here is the sketch...
And here is the card I made...


I have used some neglected Senior Citizen stamps which I got from the NEC over a year ago (and this is the first time they have been used, how bad is that!!) And then I have used my neglected Lyra Aqua Colour Crayons and just some other stash from my collection lol!!

And it's also time for the challenge over at Pollycraft too where the theme is 'Winter Birthdays' and here is the card I made (it's my first DT card, so exciting!!)...

I thought I would jump on the band waggon and make one of these easel cards, couldn't believe how easy they were (I now realise why everyone is making them!!) I made this card for Dylan's Grandad as he has a winter birthday so it came in really handy! I have used Moodles and coloured him with Pro Markers and then just some bits and bobs from my stash...

Well... I am finally getting my head around blogging again and I will be visiting everyone this week... it feels like ages since I've done a proper Blog Hop so watch out as I'll be visiting lol!!

Love Becky xx
