Stampin' for the Weekend - Anything Goes


Happy New Year and all that!!

This is my first post of the new year.  With both my DT's taking a break over Christmas I don't seem to have done any crafting at all.  Hopefully once I start making things I'll find my crafting mojo - I think it got put in a box with all my Christmas card stuff and stashed away.

I've also realised my little blog is 3 years old - so I'll sort out a little candy over the next week or so for my lovely followers.

Anyway.  It's time for the first challenge of the year at:

This first challenge is super hard and will require lots of thought from you all.... nah only kidding - it's anything goes!!  

This time we are sponsors by one of our lovely regular sponsors:

So here's my card.  I made a while back for a friends 60th Birthday.

I think the paper is a magazine freebie and the image is from Tiddlyinks.  I also covered the bird cage in some distress crackle paint, but you can't really tell from this photo but it is!

I do hope that you'll be able to join us for this challenge!  Especially as I'm going to the Creative Stitches and Hobby Crafts event in Manchester in a couple of weeks so I need some lovely things to put on my shopping list!
