The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog - Our First Challenge!!

Hi Everyone!!

Today is a very exciting time for me as it's the launch of The Creative Cottage Challenge Blog!!

We had a fantastic pre-launch blog candy which I will be drawing today so fingers crossed if you entered!!

You can use any products from any manufacturers for the challenge so I really hope you will be able to join us for our first Challenge where we have the theme NEW!! You can use something new which you've bought or make a New Baby, New Home card etc... We have a fantastic prize up for grabs and also a DT call for the Challenge blog so please do check us out!!

And here is my card...

I have used papers from the Creative Cottage 'Something Sweet' collection and my new stamps from The Greeting Farm. I have also used a new little charm sent to me by my very special friend Jill!

In other news... I had a bit of a blow out yesterday whilst watching QVC... I couldn't believe what fantastic products Dawn Bibby had released!! I had to go for the TSV... the accompanying set of 4 clear stamps and some more stamps which had the most adorable cute owls... it's a good job OH gave me some money for Mother's Day!!

Thanks for looking!!

Love Becky xx

This is a stunning card and the colouring is perfect. I cannot get used to my Copics.After using Watercolours these seem a little bit "flat" but I will keep trying.
