Happy New Year

I needed to make two thank you/New Year cards today, so I have made these for the challenges on TGIF (challenge 65: all it's new) and A Spoonful of sugar (challenge 29).

I've used various DCWV papers for both cards, some sticky ribbons and computer printed 'Happy New Year':

This is a good opportunity to wish everyone a Happy New Year.

I much appreciate those who visit my blog and it's lovely when you leave comments.

Looking forward to a new year of ever-evolving excitement in the world of crafting - there are so many lovely forums, blogs and challenges out there and plenty of inspiration.

Our Creative Corner

I've added a link to Our Creative Corner on my sidebar. They have just added three new design members to the team and are giving away some fun goodies:

'How would you like to win some fun goodies from Jacksonbelle Embellishments? To be entered to win, add our banner to you blog and leave us a link here in this post. We will announce the winner on Wednesday, January 7th.'

Over on Crafty Creations there is the offer of two lovely stamps - all you have to do is leave a comment and link to your blog. It's a lovely challenge blog - why not hop over and have a look?!

CBCC 078 It's off to work we go

New challenges have started up on CBC and the first new one has been set by Jackie is 'off to work we go': 'Your challenge today is to make something NEW with a theme of occupations.'

I suppose this is stretching it a bit, but I thought I'd use some of the Jolly Nation decoupage and background papers to make a 'riding instructor' card:

I'm hoping that at some point I'll need to send a card to someone who's mad about horses!
