Happy New Year

Hope you’ve all had a lovely Christmas and Santa’s been good to you,I made this card using my favourite Magnolia stamps and my lovely copics which I got earlier this year and just love,the background paper I’ve had for a while and not known what to use it for, you know how it is!!

I’m entering this card for Crafty Cardmakers Challenge which is to use your favourite items, which isn’t hard as I use them quite often, although I must admit i’ve not used my copics for a while and I had to try hard to remember how to use them, I must not leave it so long next time lol,P1010648

I’ve left the design quite plain as the bp is quite busy,the image is in front of a nestie shape which I’ve coloured with Distress inks, which are another favourite of mine come to think of it lol, and I did an easel card for a change as I hadn’t done one before,P1010651

Items Used;

Magnolia image~from my lovely friend Mandy,thanks hun,

Copics,Distress Inks~ pearly doodles,

xcut flower punch~MS punch~ribbon and pearls from stash,

Back ground paper~denim daisies,

Hope you all have a brilliant New Year and enjoy what ever your doing,thanks for looking,

Yipee, it’s snowing again, gosh we’ve not had this much of the white stuff for years, lol,

Ps, If anyone can recommend a good cutter to use, please can they let me know, mine’s just not cutting right and it’s very hard work to get straight edges with a wonky cutter !!
