All about the New at My Time to Craft Challenge Blog

Good morning blogfriends

Well here we are at the first weekend of 2013 with the first challenge of the year for MTTC.  which is

All about the New

I have to confess that I didn't do very well with this challenge - totally because I didn't read it properly!- something that all bloggers who enter challenges suffer from from time to time!!  For this challenge the new can be New Year, new baby, new house but NOT new stash - and that's where I went wrong - when I read the challenge I though it said and new stash - so off I went and made my card - which is not the one I've posted here!!  I made a lovely card with lots of my new goodies that i got from santa - lovely new colours for my copics, new dies and a lovely stamp - but totally wrong for this challenge!!

 - so be warned - NOT new stash.

I managed to find a card that I hadn't posted before that fit that challenge perfectly - something I made ages ago, the card was really lovely and sparkly and shiney - the photo is terrible - and for that I must apologise. I've always photographed my cards - long before I started to blog just to serve as a reminder if i want to make something similar again, and this was just a quick snap really!

   It was so last minute when I went to post the card - even though I hadn't rushed to make it -that I didn't have time to make another on top of that my mojo isn't doing very well at the moment - I think he's still on holiday, along with my craft stuff which was also put away for the holidays, I just can't seem to get it together all at the minute - hopefully I'll get it right soon!!!

anyway onto my card

This is what I did (from what I remember)....

Card  -  made from plain blue card, white card and silver miri card - layered together
Lettering -  cut on Slice die cutter (which I borrowed to try out a while ago)
Labels and congrats  - also die cut on slice
Edges done with a martha stewart edge punch
Baby sticker, ribbon and button - from my stash

It really was a very easy card to make. I decided not to go with the slice and bought a cricut expression instead. Though to be fair the slice is very portable, easy to us, good for layering and I could have found a home for it among my craft tools and I think its a lot cheaper now than it used to be (well if you import it from the US it is!!) - but at the time it seemed a bit expensive for what it was.

Challenges I'm entering with this card

Totally papercrafts - something new
Crafts for eternity - something new (MM slice)
link up for pink - a dash of pink
a gem of a challenge - new beginings

Have a great weekend
