First card of 2013


Hope you all had a good new year!  My date with my craft drawers was lovely - all except one are now neat, tidy and organised.  (Can't see it lasting very long though!)

It's time for the first challenge of 2013 at Stampin' For the Weekend and it's a nice easy one to start the year with - Anything Goes!

We are so lucky to be sponsored by the fabulous Stamp Fairy this time

Plus they kindly gave us some lovely images to work with.  I chose Mimi Stars 3 - she's so cute!

This card is for one of my lovely friends as it's her birthday on Monday!  The star paper is from Papermania and the patterned yellow glitter card is a scrap I had left over from a beautiful set from Doodlebug Designs (I still have a small piece of the flocked yellow card left from that and I like to admire it from time to time.)

Hope you can pop over and join in with our challenge - it's always lovely to see what other people are doing.   

And just a little reminder to my current followers that I have a some candy on offer at the minute here

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

Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown - Bright and Happy New Year
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Willow Sketchie - Anything Goes
Paperplay - Celebrations
Freshly Brewed - Anything Goes
Natalie and Amy - Favourite Things - (I love this yellow glitter card and those sequin strings -)

Anyway thanks for looking!
