A Few More Challenges..

Happy New Year!! I really can't believe it's 2010... i stayed up till midnight last night, and wathched the fireworks go off around our street, it was great! And now i only have to wait 14 days until my birthday!! :O)

Anyway, onto my card... i'm ashamed to say this is another of my stamp i have had for months and not yet seen ink! :O) Whilst at the NEC, i bought a few Lili Of The Valley stamps, including these fab boy stamps. I paired them up with a sheet of K+Co paper, and them added some stars that i'd i'd already stamped onto.

I coloured him with a mix of Pro-markers and whispers... although his hair looks sort of orange in the picture... it's not in real life!

I'm going to enter this card into a few challenges:

1) Cupcake Craft Challenge: Celebrate
2) Fussy and Fancy: New- well the stamp is new and so are the papers!

I'm going to leave you with a few of my favourite cards from 2009:

Thanks for visiting me today, i really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave! :O)
