Have you got something new to show us?

Good morning all

Well the holidays are well and truly over - decorations taken down and put away and it's a brand new crafty year over at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

We have some lovely new DT girls and some new sponsors too 

so it seemed like a great idea to start off the year with a 

Something New Theme

my daughters friend has just had a baby boy and she asked me to make a card 

so here's what I made to welcome baby Thomas into the world

I just love this cute image from Stitchy Bear Digital outlet
it's called Droppin In - just soooo cute, my new favourite new baby stamp

Our sponsors this week are Di's Digi Stamps 

Easier to use NEW WEBSITE

Ooo Im so still buzzing this morning - I went to the Metro arena in Newcastle last night to see Queen and Adam Lambert - I can't say much more than FABULOUS - Brian May on guitar, Roger Taylor on drums and the gorgeous Adam Lambert camping it up all the way.  The cynics say things like - he's not Freddie Mercury blah blah - and I'd say yes that's totally and obviously true he's Adam Lambert and wonderful with it from his black leather and studs down to his totally camp leopard print suit complete with huge sparking crown for the encore he definitely can do it! - if you get the chance - go and see them you'll sing along to every song and they do it so well, there was even an acoustic "Fog on the Tyne" for us Geordies from Brian May - for anyone who visits me regularly you'll know my head is often singing songs inside - I just love music -at the minute my head singing "All we hear is radio gaga...." - that might just set you off for the day lol - enjoy it - whatever your head is singing

...and as for this card....
Here's what I did...

Image - Droppin in from Stitchy bear digital outlet
Coloured with copics and Spectrum noir pencils
Papers and sentiment stamp - LOTV
Flower dies - Sue Wilson for creative expressions
Swirl - Magnolia
Circle dies - spellbinders
Butterfly punches (small) woodware and (large) Martha Stewart
Cheescloth trim - Tim Holtz
Ribbon - vintage seambinding from crafty ribbons

I hope you'll join in with us at Fab'n'Funky this week and give our new DT girls a warm welcome
