3 in 1

Who's a clever girl then!! Just had a quick browse round some of my favourite challenge blogs and realised that I could tie three of them into a card I needed to make :) I needed a new year card for a friend so here are what was required
The sketch is from a new challenge blog, (not sure how I came across this one!) The Sketch and Stash challenge blog
Every 2 weeks there will be a sketch to follow. You can rotate the sketch, resize the elements and add extra elements if needed.The second part of the challenge is to use your newest stash on your card. You can use a new paper, new stamp, new embellishments etc. They can all be new or just one thing which is new, that's up to you!When you're posting your card on your blog please let everyone know what your new item is, the make or manufacturer and a link to where you bought it from if possible! But most importantly, HAVE FUN!!
This week's challenge is something easy to get you back into the swing of stamping and crafting. For this week, we'd like you to create something NEW!! It can be made with new products(maybe some goodies you received under the tree!!), it can be using a new technique, or something for a new occasion (baby, house, job......).
We're back now with a new challenge! Seeing spots is simply to use spots/dots or circles on your project!
So here is my card

I think the spotty backing paper is from K & Co, as is the spotty paper used for the large hand cut numbers. My new item this time is my lovely little owl stamp from Stamps Away, he was part of my Secret Santa pressie and it's the first time he's been used. I suppose I could've had the 'new year' too ;) The sentiment was done on my lap top.

Right, I'm off to make a lasagne now............I'm supposed to be sorting my craft room but I keep getting diverted :) I started it yesterday and it just looks a bigger tip than usual! It will be worth it in the end though (who am I kidding, I don't think there will be an end!!! LOL

Take care and TFL xx
