Something new

Good morning and a slightly belated Happy New Year! I've not been around much for a couple of weeks as life was very busy...Christmas, New Year and a wedding in between. My son and his lovely partner tied the knot (finally!!:) on the 29th was an absolutely magical day, hopefully I'll have some photos to share soon.

My first card today -and first this year - is my DT card for our new Challenge at Sweet Stampin' which is aptly enough 'Something New' , you can interpret this however you like, but don't forget to include some stamping! My something new is this gorgeous flower stamp from Imagination Crafts, I inked it up with black Stazon and stamped it onto DP, then matted it onto more DP from the same pad, very quick and easy! The sentiment stamp is new too...a magazine freebie!

Thanks for calling by, hopefully you'll be tempted to play along with us this week to show off some of your lovely new Christmas pressies! Just click here to see what my lovely teamies have created for your enjoyment, and of course to add your own beautiful creations.

I'll be back soon with another DT card!
