New Crafty Goodies at Sparkles

Two posts in one day! I had better keep an eye on that, before I know it I will be a fully-fledged more than once weekly contributor to blogland.

It's time for the first challenge for the year at Sparkles Challenges, and this time we want to see what you have made with your


Now if Santa was good to you, or you decided to treat yourself over the holidays (like I did!), then you hopefully have some new goodies you are dying to try out and show off.

For my DT card I took the opportunity to make a card for a friend of mine that just had a baby boy. I used a brand new Pink Gem Designs digi stamp that I was lucky enough to win recently at A Gem of a Challenge.

I am fairly sure the digi sentiment was a freebie, but I have lost all details of when and where I got it. I really need to start organising my files! The DP is Imagininsce "Boy Oh Boy". All cardstock has been distressed with my Tim Holtz Distressing tool. The remaining DP, ribbon and blue pearl stick-ons are from my stash. I sponged the background to my image with Versa Magic ink in Aspen Mist.

Our challenge this month is sponsored by Crafty Emma. Please check out the challenge blog for all the details and to see what fabulous creations have been made by my teammates.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Card Makin Mamas - Happy New Year
Crafty Ribbons - New Beginnings
Divas By Design - New Beginnings
Crafty Boots - New Beginnings
Crafty Card Makers - No floral Embellishments

Until next time,
