Cupcake Craft Challenge - 124 Something New

Good morning peeps! Well I saw the first sunshine of the year at the weekend... it was 15°c here on Saturday, I even had to get my sunglasses to stop me squinting when I was driving! I hope this is the shape of things to come, but I fear a cold snap on the horizon... just seems too good to be true this January sunshine!

At Cupcake Craft Challenge this week Denise has chosen a fab theme... something NEW! It could be new baby, new house, new job, new stash...the list goes on! Well, I couldn't resist using my new toys I got for Christmas... papers (the green one is new and is from Wild Rose Studio, the other one MME), Nellie Snellen punches, Papermania leaf punch and finally the Lili Of The Valley sentiment stamp (hubby bought me these and they're lovely). I've cut out my sentiment with nesties (you're right Vicky, it is worth the effort), and coloured it with Promarkers to match the image. There's also some embossing done on my Cuttlebug with the Perfect Paisley folder.

I'm entering my card for the:

Awwwwh, so cute hunny! I think that LOTV stamp is one of the nicest ever. Gorgeous papers and I love how you've done the sentiment. Having seen the forecast for this week, over this side of the country we're gonna need wellies! Hugs, Sxx

Difficile d'apporter un commentaire à cette carte, je dirais donc que : j'aime tout ! les papiers, les décos, le tampon, j'adore !
Wow 15° chez toi !! Ici il a fait du soleil avec 10°, pas mal non plus pour la saison ! Aujourd'hui il a gelé mais c'est encore un peu ensoleillé :-)
Bonne journée Shelly, bisous !
