Rocking Horse

Happy New Year everybody. :0)

I hope that you all had a lovely Christmas break and New Year's Eve last night, and you're not feeling too worse for wear this morning!

Not only is today the start of a new year, it's also the start of a new challenge at As You Like It Challenge where the theme is to use your favourite shape or fold.

As you'll know if you visit me often, I love shaped cards and usually use pre cut ones, but this is one I cut myself using a Go Kreate labels die.  I really love this shape and really should use it more often.  I also love tent fold cards the best (I can't explain why, I just do, and there is no rhyme or reason for it!).

Actually, saying that I find them easier to photograph, but I'm not sure that's the real reason!

I'm also still fixated on the colour pink, my Maya Design papers, LOTV images and DI reinkers.  I really do love it when I make the effort and use the reinkers, but it does take me a lot longer to paint with the water colours than it does to use Copics.  (note to self, must try harder to make the effort!)

Anyway, I hope you like my card, and hope you join us in the new fancy shapes and folds challenge this fortnight.

Card Recipe:
... and, erm, just a few bits from The Ribbon Girl ...
I've been inspired by:
  • Simon's Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  • Papertake Weekly - Pick a fave (it has to be 'ohhh so cute' for me, and there were 2 cute Papertake challenges last year, so it seems to be popular with other crafters too!)
  • Totally Tilda and Friends - Anything Goes
  • Creatalicious - New Beginnings
  • Creative Knockouts - For the Kids
Happy crafting

Love everything about this one Annette, your painting of that adorable stamp is brilliant and the floral arrangements look so pretty. Wishing you good health and happiness in 2015 xx

P.S I've failed my resolution already...just had a look at the sale at Maddy Lisa Crafts and accidentally bought some bad!!

I do like shaped bases but go through phases of using them and then seem to forget about them - this is a really pretty shape.
The image is super cute and it does look lovely painted with DIs - fabulous shading :-)

Good luck with the New Year's Resolution to use your unused stash!

Big hugs, Kat xx
