It's New Years Day here in NZ ~ so a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my readers...
Stayed up to see the New Year in and woke this morning to my son cooking bacon and eggs for breakfast for the 10 of us staying in the holiday house at the moment. After that, Mum, Dad, hubby and I headed about 30kms up the road, to Waipu to watch the Highland Games. Waipu is was founded by Scots a very long time ago... in fact, this years games were the 143rd. Got drenched then sumburnt before getting rained on again. But all in all a fun day.
Anyway being the first of the month, two challenges I'm involved in start their new challenges.... First up is Creative Craft Cottage which has a theme "Quote Me" Use your favourite quote
I made two cards to share -
I love this quote from Couture Creations. Die cut the Spellbinders De-lite oval and stamped the quote. Used an old Mojo Monday sketch with co-coordinating papers from a pack by Melissa Frances. The flowers is a hand made one.
and my second card used a quote from one of the sheets of quotes that our sponsor Imagine If provided for us to use.
I trimmed out the sentiment quote and then with some creative use of my die, cut a longer backing tag. Used the method I've seen Jennifer McGuire and Kristina Warner use of partial cutting the die, moving it along a bit and finishing off the rest to lengthen the tag. I used some Christmas paper for my backing paper and some roses I had in my stash. The pink one was in a swap I got from Paula Lynne and the two white ones were Prima ones. Cut a holly branch die
The second challenge under way on the first is Die Cut Divas.... but as it's USA based, it doesn't actually start for another 5 and a bit hours so I'll share tomorrow my time. We have an awesome sponsor this month and a great challenge from Arlene.... look out for it.
Thanks for stopping by. 2014 is going to be an awesome year so continue to come and visit me, it makes my day.
