New Beginnings!!

Morning everyone.  Another scheduled post from me today.  I've an early start, off out with Emily as she has a soccer match and has to be at the far end of town by 9.30am.  We're picking my bro on the way, he's gonna come and cheer her along too.  I sooo hope he brings the team good luck, Emily's such a nightmare when they lose - soooo competitive!!!  

We  have our first challenge of 2012 launching today at Craft Your Days Away Challenge.

We hope you all enjoyed a lovely Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our month long challenge over the festive period all wonderful snowman projects.

It's my turn to set the them this time and with the start of a brand new year I opted for.....

NEW BEGINNINGS

New beginnings could be something to do with the new year, a new baby, new job, new home or maybe a new life such as engagement, marriage or even divorce!!!  So it's time to celebrate a new event of some kind.

We welcome a brand new sponsor to CYDA to kick off the year....

I chose to make a wedding card.  Last year I seemed to get caught out with the number of requests I had for these so thought it a good idea to get a head start lol.


My friends getting married this year and her fav colour is pink - even her dress is gonna be PINK!!!!  I'm sooo not a pink lady and really struggled to make a pink wedding card particularly as I find it a tricky colour to match and work with.  I certainly couldn't bring myself to colour the dress fully!  Instead, I opted for black and white - with little touches of pink.  I'm sure she'll still like this.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges.....
