Crafter's Companion January Challenge ~ DT Card

Happy New Year!

Hope you all had a lovely New Year's Eve whether you were out painting the town red or like me seeing the New Year in at home.

It's the first of the month so a new challenge has been set at Crafter's Companion.  This month we have a fab sketch by my lovely DT buddy Jacqui and the optional theme is 'New'.  It can be new year, new baby, new products ... in fact anything 'New'.

You can choose to follow the sketch, the theme or both together and remember you don't have to use Crafters Companion products but if you do you'll be entered twice into the random draw for the £30 voucher that Sara is offering for one lucky winner :-)

I decided to make a new baby card because our friend and his partner had a baby girl, Grace, just before Christmas.  I'm not sure I like the flowers on this card but it's too late now because there are well and truly stuck down.

Image & Sentiment ~ Crafter's Companion Platinum Popcorn 'Little Cutie'
Papers ~ Craftwork Cards 'Sugar & Spice'
Ribbon ~ Stash
Flowers ~ Prima
Pearls ~ Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment ~ Above stamp plate

We are going out shortly to see what we can buy in the sales and then later this afternoon Chris' mum is coming over for a buffet tea.
