Thankyou and a sneaky peek

Happy New Year Girls
I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for making my first months of blogging such a fantastic experience and of course to show of one of the new digi's which will be available from tomorrow from Squigglefly

I adore sun flowers!!! They're such big, bright cheery flowers that they never fail to lift my spirits so I couldn't wait to play with this beauty.
I started by printing straight onto some pearlised card stock, added the greeting along the stem then coloured it with my copics. I printed a further three times, twice onto some yellow DP's from a bygone age and once onto a piece of gold paper which I then ran through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots folder, a little brown ink in places then some careful paper piecing gave me my finished card. I've purposely left this 'less is more' and I think it's worked. My opinion girls but I'm sticking to it lol and of course there are the obligatory challenges!!!

1. Fussy & Fancy - something new to celebrate their new challenge blog
2. C R A F T - Thank you
3. Magical Crafts - Thank you
4. Pile it On - anything digi
