Congratulations ...

Happy New Year fellow crafters, I hope Christmas was a good one for you?
Well today the 1st January 2013 and we kick off the year with a new challenge over at
'Passion for Promarkers' and it is titled 
'New Beginnings'.

I have opted to use this cute little stamp from Magnolia which came
with the last issue of the Magnolia Ink Magazine. My reasoning, for those that
don't know we had a new addition to the family this Christmas in the form
of another little Westie puppy, welcome little Evie, so this is for her!

This challenge is sponsored by the fabulous 

who have a collectors set up for grabs for one lucky winner!
Please come and play along with us, I know a lot of crafter's have had Promarkers 
for Christmas or have resolutions to improve techniques, so what are you 
waiting for?

I have used - Die, papers, sentiments are CG, flowers, berries, tulips, roses.
Buckle, charm, ribbon, lace, embossing folder.
All hand stitched to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
I Love Promarkers - Anything but Square (I won Top 3)!
Ladybug Crafts - Anything Goes (I won Top 3)!

Thank you for visiting my blog throughout 2012 and all your wonderful comments,
very much appreciated, crafters are just wonderful people.

Take care, love
