Happy New Year & A Freebie Alert

Well here we are in 2017 and I hope all of you have a happy and healthy new year

I have 3 cards for you today 

Firstly the new challenge at 613 Avenue Create  and the theme is as always Anything Goes, with the optional twist of Totally Technical (show us one of your favourite techniques). This challenge is now "Just for Fun" so no sponsors and prizes, but still a wonderful way to show off your beautiful creations.

My card uses the stamp set from Newtons Nook called Naughty Newton, I have also used the matching dies as my technique is partial die cutting.

The sentiment is also from the same stamp set and the DP is from my stash.
The inside of the card reads

The theme this time is Monochromatic

Our lovely sponsor is 

My card uses the image Gouda for You

I used Spellbinders Confetti plate for the background and a pierced oval die from my stash. The image is coloured with Copic markers

This week I have the pleasure of hosting the challenge and the theme is Something New, this could of course be the New Year or New Baby, but also new to you techniques, or crafty goodies, or even a new image, and as we have a lovely new sponsor

Tory Tale is also offering everyone a new image for free, the image is called Sweet wishes and you get an extra chance to enter the challenge using this image. The details are all HERE

So using the lovely image Sweet Wishes this is my card

I used a new die by Spellbinders called Frame Maker and also a new stamp from Lawn Fawn called Woodgrain Backdrops, both in my stocking from Santa. The sentiment is from my stash and is cut out with Lawn Fawn's Extra Sentiment Banners.

Thank you for stopping by


  1. Alex, my New Year's resolution is tovisit everyone's blog every week! So glad I started with yours as I truly love that Spellbinder's frame die! What size card and can it be adjusted larger? Love all 3 have a lovely post!

  2. OMGosh Alex! You have been a busy girl! I love the "That stinks" with that image - that would be perfect for a friend of mine. All three CAS cards show a sense of humor that I enjoy!
