New Year Blog Candy

Hi everyone and welcome to 2012. I know its a little late, but I wanted to get this all organised for my first post for the year, and to kick off the year with a great start!

So in this post, which will remain at the top for the next two weeks, I will be offering a nice little candy giveaway to one lucky person and showing a card made with one of Di's Digi Downloads .
In addition to the ribbon and nestabilities I am giving away, Di has kindly sponsored this as well and is giving away a digi voucher for her shop to the value of $10 - woohoo!

Here is my first card share for 2012 using Di's Digi called Tending Snowdrops, which you can purchase HERE, and was made using nice fresh colours and used few colours to keep it nice and clean looking.

The digi was coloured with twinkling H2O's and the border / corner punches are from Martha Stewart. Added lots of pearls and glue gun dew drops which were coloured with alcohol inks and some nice shiny organza ribbon to finish.

The close up above shows the layers on the card and the glitter added to the snowdrops and wings -
PS. its easier to cut the circles into the card layers after you have punched and matched the two layers.
Onto the blog candy then, and what you need to do and the prize is for 3 items:

1.   One Set of Spellbinders Nestabilty dies - Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Small 

2.  15 metres of ribbon in shades of green, 5m of each colour (for Spring and Easter of course) 


3.   $10 Di's Digi downloads voucher to spend on Digi Images

2.  subscribe to the email on Di's Digi downloads for the new image notifcation - you will find this on the right hand side of Di's Digi blog (click on the Di Digi logo above to locate the digi blog)

Lili of the Valley Candy

just saw this and wated to share - 12 stamp giveaway woohoo.. click on the LOTV sign:

Happy Hoppers New Baby Card

Thought it was about time I used a House Mouse stamp as I love them and had not made a card with one in ages, so here is one made earlier for a new baby card.
The stamp is a Happy Hoppers one called Sleepy Head from House Mouse Designs, and because the stamp is so detailed I just coloured lightly with Polychromos pencils.

The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs digi papers and the set is called Gingham which you can find here.

The baby bottle is a little flat back button I have had for ages, and the tag is half of a spellbinders label one which I only partially cut one end to make my own shape sentiment label thingy ?!

Am entering this card into a few challenges:
Bearly Mine Challenges - Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp - New Something
The Craft Garden - Monochrome (mine is all shades of pink)
House Mouse & Friends - Happy New Year Challenge - New
Sir Stampalot Challenge - Monochromatic to sort out my untidy craft desk now - how much mess can you make doing one or a couple of cards...
