SO WHAT'S NEW?

So what's new in January?

Well firstly - I have got myself an agency and I am now an agent for an importer of FABULOUS crafty stuff  ...
- you'll see the goodies I sell on page 3 of my blog.  

Secondly,  I also have a NEW airconditioner that blows ice cold air - just what we need here in Durban in summer!  

And then some great news is that I have the honour of being the guest designer at The Outlawz for the month of January and am so excited to be sharing with you all my inspiration card for today's Challenge that calls for the use of a brad and something newly purchased.

This week's sponsor is Digistamps4Joy - isn't that fun!  so I used one of my own images that I drew for the store for my card.  This one is called  Victoria 


The image is colouring using alcohol markers and a white gel pen.  I fussy cut it out and placed it behind a diecut made from my newly purchased Lea'bilities die. 

 The pale blue and white DP has one corner punched using a MS corner punch.  The embellishments are the flowers and a gem topped brad has been used for the centre of one of the flowers.  The sentiment is a stick-on.  I sewed on some shiny white flower sequins and beads too.

Head on over to the challenge by clicking HERE - you will be able to see the fabulous creations of the Greetings Challenge DT and by entering your card (it has to have a sentiment on the front) you could be in line to win some fabulous prizes.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
