Good morning all, sorry I've not been around the last couple of days but I've been looking after my poor hubby. I was very concerned yesterday that he might have swine flu so got the doctors to call him and apparently he just has a very nasty virus that seems to be affecting a lot of people in our village. He's not one of your typical "man-flu" guys and I've not seen him look this poorly in the 8 years we've been together. I'm over-cautious about all this because I'm asthmatic and only had my jab last Thursday which was 48 hours before Jon became unwell again.
Anyway, it's my first challenge with the wonderful Teddy Stampers gang and I'm so excited!! Our first challenge for the New Year is Celebrations and we're being sponsored by the wonderful Whimsy Stamps!
We've all been provided with some digi stamps to showcase for this challenge and this is my first foray into the world of digi stamping. I know many of you have been using these for quite a while, so I'm a late starter! Whilst I did enjoy using my image, I don't think you can beat that feeling of holding a rubber stamp in your hand and stamping away to your hearts content.
I used the Baby's 1st Christmas image and coloured it with copics before cutting out with my label nesties. The fur trim and bobbles have been glittered with Glamour Dust. The CS is Real Red SU and the papers are from an old Forever Friends Christmas pad. I finished off with two MS punched snowflakes and gems and the sentiment is from a Personal Impressions set that I have.
I am also entering this into the following challenges:
ABC Christmas - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
A Spoonful of Sugar - Christmas
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Winter Wonderland
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Anything Goes
I really hope that you'll join us for our 1st Challenge of the year as I love visiting your blogs to see your interpretations. Just remember it must include either a stamped or digi teddy!! Please check out the rest of the DT's amazing creations.
Thanks for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, the are greatly appreciated.
