I'm Back!

Hi folks, I know I've been off the radar for a while, its been a very busy Christmas and New Year, and I've also been spring cleaning and painting my kitchen (and recovering from my New Year's celebrations)!  But back to work on Monday BooHoo so hopefully normal service will resume.  We've also a new release from High Hopes coming your way soon ... sneaky peaks will begin on Monday!

This card uses an old Sugar Nellie stamp - coloured with copics and flower soft added to her pompoms.  My fancy corner die is from Simon Says Stamp and the postmark sentiment stamp is from Lili of the Valley.

Sketch from the Sugar Bowl #98
Colour theme from the Play Date Cafe #163
Pile it On #49 - pile on the embellishments
Party Time Tuesday #101 - Celebrate
Tuesday Alchemy #47 - hopes, dreams or resolutions - my crafty New Year resolution is to re-ink my older stamps and use up unloved DP!
Papertake Weekly - anything goes
Penny's Paper Crafting Challenge #108 - use your favourite embellishment (mine is my bling and bakers twine!)

What a gorgeous, bright card! Just right for cheering up the winter blues! (I put on 2lb over Christmas but I'm just glad it wasn't more!!)

Wishing you all the best for 2013!

Great card Lynne - must try to use orange a bit more on my cards - its really bright and cheerful. Wish you could come up and do some springcleaning here! I always have great intentions for the holidays, but the days fly by too quickly!

Your image reminds me of my cheerleader's so cute. Oh, to go back to those days. Ha

Painting your kitchen? Nothing like a fresh coat of paint to liven the spirits of winter.

If you're going to Hawaii with me, you better get those bags packed. Oh, we can pretend, can't we? LOL
