Morning to all on the last day of the year. Tomorrow we're all looking forward to a brand new year so I thought the card I'd made for this little girl was very apt to show you. I was so glad I managed to do these special cards in time as they mark such a milestone and I know I wouldn't want to throw them straight in the bin after the big day! With that in mind I hope it was a surprise for the parents to open and then to figure out how to stand it, not everyone knows what an easel card is. The little girl is a friend's grandaughter and I've never seen such a fast forward moving child who is trying to run before learning to walk, what a delight to see and an adorable precious gift to the parents ! Anyway my digi image is from Bugaboo ( I won in their challenge as my choice so thankyou!), coloured with Promarkers and have used offcuts of digi papers left laying around, lots of LOTV stamps used here, found some inexpensive pink doily hearts in a pound shop which fit perfectly on the bottom panel, some pretty lace and a round stopper.




So onto some challenges...Whimsy Inspires 'party time', I love promarkers 2nd, MIM, Challenges 4 evrybody, Kaboodle Doodles, Loves Rubberstamps 'new year resolution..to declutter and use up', CCC 2nd, Simon says 2nd, Creative Craft, Crazy 2nd, Natalie & Amy, CYP 'new...doily and image', Pink Gem 3rd, Crafty Sentiments, Glitter n sparkel 'fave image..Bugaboo any', Sentimental Sundays 'pick a listed challenge...146 anything goes'. Lastly I'd like to wish each and everyone of you who come over to see what I've been up to 'A Very Happy New Year', wishing peace and happiness for 2014. Stay safe and enjoy!
