First project of 2011

Happy New year to everyone

Morning all, hope it's a bit brighter today, can't believe it was more like a wet and dreary november day than a crisp clear winter day yesturday, but I did get some crafting in before my in laws descended and we had fun playing various card games including Bohanza really fun  if you want a change and then taking turns on the ps3 with sons steering wheel trying to drive around a circuit especially the guys who had had plenty of wine by this point, and they so didn't like it when we girls and my son got better placings than them , even my mum in law who doesn't drive stayed on the track better.

Well my card, is for my son to give to my sister. I decided on a whim to use colours that I wouldn't normally and as my sister seems to wear alot of red I thought I would have a look to see what challenges there were to stretch me using these colours. I found a couple of colour challenges and set to work using one of my new sugar nellie sassy stamps that came from funky kits via Santa.

I coloured with Promarkers and highlighted with sakura white pen. The beige ribbon I used to tone down all the red and pink and I used the beige gems to balance it. The papers are all from my stash and scraps folder along with the red mirri card. I added a peel off sentiment and it was finished, it is growing on me but I'm not sure I like it that much but it will suit my sisters personality and my son says it's so aunty Kath so hey ho it will do.

I would like to enter it into the following challenges:-

The sugar bowl-layout and optional embossing which I forgot
Playdate cafe-colour challenge red,beige and pink
Colour create-red,pink and white
Simon says-celebrate /party
Anything challenge- Cis for (celebrate my sisters birthday
Creative card crew-birthdays
Moving along with the times-birthdays and circles
Crazy for challenges-celebration
Speedy the cats friends-use something new
Really reasonable ribbons-something new and ribbons
If the shoe fits-red
Sew many challenges-new things
Creative inspirations challenge-use something new
Order of opus gleui-anything you've made

I decided that as my sister seems to get alot of colds she could do with some tissues in a handy pack so made a holder to match her card and together I would like to enter the card and tissue pack into fussy and fancy challenge of matching card and gift.

Thanks for taking part in the Sugar bowl challenge love your take on it. This has to be one of my favourite images from the recent batch of stamps. I'm sure your sister will love it and the matching hanky holder is so appropriate at this time of year.
