First Card of the new year!


So here's my first card for this year.   I'm trying to use up some of my stash as I accidently bought loads of stuff in the sizzix and docrafts sale - oops!  I can't wait for the postie to arrive this week so I can look at it all.  I suspect the only problem will be not knowing where to start!

The friends sentiment was a pain though - it's from a sizzlits strip - but it doesn't cut cleanly or completely.  Although I suspect this is user error - the card may have been a bit thick!

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Red and White
Pollycraft - Punch It
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Anything Goes
If The Shoe Fits - Use your Stash

Hello to my new follower - Sylvie!

Thanks for Looking

Hi Julie, wonderful card, I have the same problem with the Sizzlet Dies and now only use thin card and plenty of shims. Oddly they do work better in my C'bug than they did in the Big Shot :o) Karen x
