Happy New Year - Stampin' for the Weekend is BACK!

Good Morning 
I hope you are all seeing in the New Year without a hang over! I am scheduling this post as I will be at work :(
I opted to stay at home with Poppy while Daddy gets to PARTY!

This week over at Stampin' for the Weekend, we are kicking off with a simple challenge 

"Here's to New Beginnings"

We'd like to see some cards inspired by being 'NEW' or a 'BEGINNING' of something - so New Year Wishes, New Baby, Wedding ..even celebrating a Divorce... New Job or New Home, the choice is yours!

This fortnights challenge is being sponsored by Heidi from Simon Says Stamp!

Heidi is offering the lucky winner a £25 Gift Voucher to spend in the Store on some fabulous crafty goodies of their choice!

Well then - Here's to New Beginnings!! 
To make it easy on me, I went for a simple wedding card!

I have used papers from K&Co that I had lying around, and distressed the edges and inked them using my copics! Image and sentiments are from TGF Cake Topper set I received from a lovely and generous Teamie of mine! Thank you hun!

I coloured the image using Copics and added some Glossy Accent to the bow, button and flowers in her hair!
Twine is from my Gardening box and I added a Charm I had in my Stash.

We have a lovely Guest Designer this fortinight called Sharon. Sharon GD'd for us in our last challenge and kindly said yes to designing for us for our first challenge in 2010! Sharon also got some exciting news recently - she has been picked as 'Papercrafter of the Year' by the Magazine - Papercraft Essentials! Have you got your copy ?? Sharon is going to be lucky enough to design with the Magazine Team and will be receiving a nice stash of crafting goodies too - how LUCKY is she and what a way to bring in the New Year!

Thank you for stopping by, I'm sure the team would love you to visit them also if you've not already been to them!

Have a lovely weekend!
