New Beginnings

Well folks, it's all over barr the shouting! Just kidding, it's been lovely spending time with our extended family, especially for the children, who love the company of their cousins...there are 12 of them and they range from 5yr to 18yr. it's great, as they all get on fantastically, including 2 who have autism and another 2 with special needs...we are truely blessed.

This week at FOR FUN CHALLENGES we have the fab Bugaboo sponsoring us, for our TWO WEEK challenge where we want to see your creations with the theme of...

** NEW **

That can be anything from new babies, to the new year, or a new home to a new pet! One lucky winner will receive 7 images of choice from Jodie at Bugaboo, so get creating, that's a prize I wouldn't want to miss out on the chance of winning!

I made a set of notecards in a folder, with a New Beginnings theme.
The folder template is from my very talented friend Debbie Lauder at CRAFTYSTASH. I used the beautiful butterfly image from Bugaboo and altered the colour in my graphics program to create the set of A6 sized notecards.

The folder was made by printing the butterfly DP onto one side of the card, and the folder template outline  onto the other. After it had been cut out, scored and assembled, the notecards were placed inside.

Finally, I secured it closed using a wire-edged organza ribbon.

Don't forget to go and see what the rest of the DT have'll be glad you did, the array of creations is spectacular!
Many thanks for everyone for joining us at FOR FUN during 2011, we hope to see you plenty more in the coming year.

I'll end my post by wishing you all a wonderful NEW YEAR with all good things to come your way in 2012.

I still love how you did the butterflies with a digital stamp. I will try this sometime! Yep, I'm going to lift your card if you are okay with that?
