Stamp with fun #39 – DT card

SWF #39 - Happy New Year

SWF #39 - Happy New Year (close up)

Hello everyone, I hope you’ve all recovered from the festivities and were all lucky enough to get lots of crafting goodies from Santa!  I can’t believe the big day has come and gone so quickly :(  We managed to get to my sister’s house for Christmas dinner and boy was it worth the effort – we had a three course meal and it was absolutely gorgeous.  It was just so lovely to spend some quality time with my sister and her family and my parents, I haven’t laughed so much for ages :)  I want to say a BIG thank you to everyone that sent me handmade Christmas cards, I can’t believe how many I received and I’m so touched by your kindness. 

Onto my card which is for the Stamp with Fun challenge and the theme this week is ‘Happy New Year’; a nice, simple one for you this week!  For my card I used a stamping bella image called ‘winobella’ and coloured her with my promarkers, adding stickles to the glasses, her shoes, necklace and hair band.  The papers and card are all SU and the ribbon is from my stash.  I inked the edges of the papers with a colorbox cat’s eye chalk inkpad in olive pastel and cut the decorative edge with a fiskars border punch.  The swirls were cut with my ek success swirl punch and the adhesive stones are PM.  The sentiment was created on the pc.

The prize up for grabs this week has been donated by tina46 (who is part of the DT) and this is what one lucky winner will receive:

Don’t forget to check out the rest of the DT cards, as they are all beautiful.  I can’t wait to see what you create and look forward to visiting your blogs. 

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
