New year, new challenge

Hi there

Well at last the snow has gone and as Dean is still in South Africa (watching us throw away the last cricket test to draw the series), I took the opportunity to take a little trip up to my parents in Lancs. My Mum is also a crafty little minx so I have spent the last two days crafting and shopping!
Today we went to the new outlet for Cardcraft Plus in Preston. Their old premises was very small and parking was a nightmare. Now they have a fabulously large place with loads of new products. Of course I had to have a little spend didn't I? LOL, but only bought some paper (as if I didn't have enough!) and some tape.

Todays card is another multi challenge entry for:

Cupcake Challenge - Going girly
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Creative Inspirations - New year, new products
Colour Create - Colour theme Kraft/White/Blue with an added requirement of texture

Because I was limited on the materials I had brought with me I had to use the reverse side of my lovely new Life Stories papers from Minds Eye for my piece of Kraft (basically looks like cardboard!). I did have a little whimper as I cut into it, but it was only a small piece so not too bad! I textured it with a new cuttlebug folder, that I had yet to use.

The very cute stamp is from Whiff of Joy and is coloured with copics. The rain drops and umbrella are highlighted with glass effect gel and stickles.

Recipe: Stamps: Whiff of Joy - Willow with Umberella, general sayings. Papers: Basic Grey - Mellow, Chocolate brown & Blue Co-ordinations, My Minds Eye - Life Stories. Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Distressed Stripes. Nesties  - large circles and large scalloped circles. Sentiment - Craftwork Cards. Viva Glass effect Gel in crystal Clear, Stardust Stickles and ribbon from stash

Thanks for looking
