Happy New Challenge . . . and New Year of course!

Happy New Year to one and all

2012 was a very eventful year for me and I'm hoping for better from 2013.
I've got some shoulder surgery pending but then it should be all plain sailing from there . . . fingers crossed anyway, lol

There's a new challenge today (and for the whole of January) over at 

We would like to see your creations which celebrate new beginnings.

The challenge is kindly sponsored by My Mum's Craft Shop this month with a £10 shopping voucher on offer.

Here's my DT card

Made to celebrate the new arrival of a baby boy, this tent card uses a 6" x 6" scalloped white card blank and paper from First Edition's "Animal Antics" paper-stack.

The image was die cut from an old Marks & Spencer birth announcement card and layered onto a blue AC Cardstock looped die cut circle from Spellbinders.

The inside was decorated to match the front of the card.

The little image inside was cut out from the back of the birth announcement card and reused to make more of a feature of the greeting area.

A little satin ribbon bow and some flat backed 4mm pearls were used to finish the card.  A simple little card really.

Why not have a go yourself at this theme?  Please remember to feature a bear though, the more cute, the better.  Hop over to see what the rest of the DT came up with too... they are soooo talented!

Thanks for visiting
