Happy New Year

A big Happy New Year to you all! I hope 2015 is a wonderful year for all my blogging buddies! I have been very quiet here over the Christmas period. Just chilling with all my family - we had a wonderful time.  I am scheduling this as my son and grandsons will be here for the New Year.  Today sees the start of a new Challenge at Buckwell's Crafty Challenge and we are kicking off 2015 with everyone's favourite of Anything Goes!!

I have used this adorable image called Sonja from our very kind sponsored A Little Digi Heaven and she is available here. I coloured her with my Copics and then cut her out.  The papers are First Edition and I used a new heart die I got for Christmas by X Cut. I must say it cut really well, with intricate dies like this I always use a metal shim but I couldn't find it and it cut through on the first run!  The gorgeous ribbon is from Buckwells available here its so lush and shiny on both sides.  I used a mixture of Sweetheart blossoms and Cosmos Daisies also from Buckwells and available here. The pins and pearl stamens are from my stash.  I also added a Memory Box corner bow but not sure if you can see it that well!

Please head over to Buckwell's Crafty Challenge to see the rest of the DT work and all the details, hope you can join us!
