Happy New Year or Celebrations with the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
and what a fabulous start to my three weeks holiday, oh all right I have to go into work on Tuesday for an hour but other than that I am done for Christmas, Whoop Whoop!!!! don't you just love it :)

Any way enough of me getting excited for Christmas or the break not sure which now........................ 

Today sees the next challenge at the 


Our fabulously talented Tracie has chosen this weeks theme and that is

Happy New Year or Celebrations

Now I was lucky enough a little while back to win some LOTV stamps, and I could not resist some of their new images, so here is me using one of my winning images
I made a general celebration card, could be for many occasions.  

The base layer and contrast is a pale pink pearlescent card and the papers are Prima I believe, from the Hobby House.  The 2nd to smallest Grand Oval/Scallop Oval nestie has been used for the image plate border and the image plate.  Behind the image plate border is some oh so sweet lace from Grimsby Crafts, (cannot use this enough)  The ribbon and bow is from the Hobby House as are the pearls.  The large bling charm is from the Lidl wrapping ribbon reels that I got.  The flowers are Wild Orchid airbrushed in R85.  The image plate has also been airbrushed in the same colour.  I place a mask over the image to protect it.

Here is a close up of the image coloured in copics, with a little clear glitter sakuro pen for added glitz.

I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors for their fabulous comments, love you all, making blog land a lovely place to be, THANK YOU

Just going to link these up and then off to do the Christmas shop at Morrison's - yoohoo!!!! Janet you better be ready for us :)
