Show us something new

Hi everyone.

It's time for the first challenge of the New Year over at Ruby's Rainbow.

I chose the theme this time and picked Show us something new.

You could show us some of the lovely craft stash you got for Christmas, or bought for yourself in the sales maybe, or even a technique which is new to you but please tell us what is new about your creation.

Here's my little bit of inspiration made using some awesome stamps from my lovely hubby Ted and some fabulous DCWV Gauze paper from my bestie Sue...

I already had the Tim Holtz Bird Crazy stamp set (from NEC) but Ted bought me the Crazy Things accessories stamps and matching dies. I've colored using copics. Here's a close up on the bird so you can see his groovy glasses...

I cut the glasses using the die from the set on some glitter card which packaged one of my daughter's Christmas presents. I used the gauze paper for the backing as this card is for my Niece's husband and I thought it was quite masculine (using a Memory Box die). I just love this stamp set. You'll be seeing more of it soon...

Now it's your turn. I can't wait to see what you produce.

I would like to enter this for the following:-

Thank you so much for visiting. I'm going to do a bit of housework and then start to recycle this year's Christmas cards. I must be able to make some useful toppers or tags.
See you soon.
