Happy New Year...

To start, I wish each and everyone of you a very special 2009!!! Hope that you have many dreams and a fun filled wonderful year planned!

I created this thank you card using the sketch over at 2sketches4you and the beautiful new stamp designed by Leanne Ellis... which you can find over at Sugar Nellie.

I've made quite a few thank you cards lately, so thought I could be cheeky and use this one for the dare over on Daring Cardmakers aswell.


This image is adorable and I wanted to use my watercolours for it! I'm using infuse papers and that's inspired the colours I picked! The stamped thank you was a bit tricky to get straight but hoping it's not too obvious! Laura's Sketch 16 was a great sketch to work with and I kept mine very simple, think I could make quite a few of these in little time!





Materials:
Paper: BG - infuse, MM - stone, salt & pepper cardstock,
Stamps: Leanne Ellis - True Love, PTI - Basic alphabet
Die's: Nestabilities - circles,
Ink: Versafine black, colourbox - dark moss, watercolour pencils,
Other: American crafts ribbon, adhesive gems & bling, 3D foam,

I hope the pictures are clear and bright it's so difficult taking picture's in this poor weather! I will have my Design Team card for Basic Grey Challenges tomorrow, so come have a look!
Thanks you for stopping by and for all your congrats still stupidly grinning you know! HuGs Kim x

Happy New Year to you too Kim!

I have to agree with, that the stamp you’ve used is adorable and something else I need to add to my wish list (It’s only the 2nd of January and the list is getting long already Lol!)
A beautiful card by the way and I love the colours you’ve used.
