Craftalicious - first challenge!


Moon Baby

Well good morning and welcome to Friday, I'm very excited as our new challenge blog Craftalicious Challenges launches today (and I've had to schedule this post and the main blog post as I'm not here - so I hope it's all gone well!!)

Our theme for our very first challenge is "New" as we're a new blog - and you can do anything new, baby, house, job etc and of course it doesn't have to be a card either - just hope you can join in.

We've been sponsored by Sew Many Cards and I've used one of their gorgeous digi's for my new baby card.

I decided to use lemon & green for a change from pink & blue and I'm really pleased with how it came out (even if I do say so myself LOL). I've coloured my image with Koh-i-noor pencils to keep it soft and the rest is SU! as follows:

Cardstock - Barely Banana
Papers - Sweet Pea DSP stack
Sentiment - In the Stars using Certainly Celery ink

Star beads from stash plus also used nesties.

We're also having a blog hop to launch our first challenge and you'll need to visit each of the DT in the following order and you're at the right place cos I'm first!!

Each of us has a word for you to collect and my word is:

"Craftalicious" - now how easy was that!

You'll need to pop over and visit Carly next to collect her word and once you've got all the words re-arrange them into a sentence and email Craftalicious the answer (email addy is on the main blog).

All of the DT team are giving away a small candy, so leave some love at each blog to be in with a chance to win plus we've got some wonderful prizes and two more fab sponsors, which you can read all about on the main blog too.

I'm giving away this Stampin' Up! set of stamps called "Happy Moments" it's a lovely set of 7 stamps including some sentiments and if you search my tabs you'll find some examples of cards I've made using this lovely set (well not this set exactly as it's brand new - but you get my gist!!)



So I hope you can join in with our first challenge and our blog hop and thanks for all the lovely messages of support.
