Something New


Happy Monday People! Time for another yummy Cupcake! ;)

This week, Sassy Denise has chosen Something New. We are sponsored this week by Sassy Studio Designs and this month as a special little treat, we have not one, but three Icing on the Cupcake Sponsors; Blue Jelly Stampin, Polkadoodles and The Paper Shelter.

As for this card, I am excited to tell you I'm really pleased with it! It's not often I am so happy with a card I've made, but I like this one. I keep going and looking at it just to make sure I really made it. I just think it's a really 'Fluffie' card; you look at it and know I made it. You can't really tell from the picture, but I covered the whole image in glitter and it looks really pretty in real life.

Sweet Cheeks bought me a set of stamps (this is one of them and my Something New.) that I'd been hankering after for most of last year for Christmas. Unfortunately, the fully trained Baggage Control Operative nabbed it on the day it arrived and it had to go under the tree. That was that. Pah!

I'm going to enter this card at:

Sketch and Stash, who are currently running a DT Call and I'd love to be considered: New stash is the stamp
Pollycraft Monday Challenge: New Things

Well, you've seen mine, you really must pop over and see what The Cupcakes have created...

Margo said...

Oh Faye, I love this one too !
You can actualy tell there's glitter all over :)
I understand a little more about the locking-out :)
It's a fun place there I can tell, but I have to admit it's funny when they have to knock on the window (silently not to wake up the kids :)) to be let into the house :)

Margo

Just Paula popping in to say hello - and looking forward to getting to know you as we are now fellow DT members and Funkettes. I've added myself as a follower and can already see that i'm going to enjoy reading your posts. I love your profile story and think I need to change mine (particularly now I don't have an employer potentially finding my blog).

Hope to catch up with you soon

Hi Faye, thanks for your kind comment over at my blog. I will indeed enter my card in the Cupcake challenge. I love this card, you have a right to be proud of it; it's gorgeous! I looked around your blog and you do fantastic work. I've become one of your followers also. Hugs, dj

dj1952 said...

Hello again, I just wanted to let you know that I started to enter my flower petal card (with all the folds) and unfortunately I posted it a day before Cupcake's challenge, so it would be a backdated post. Oh well, if I make something that qualifies for this or other challenges in the future, I'll stop back. (Of course, now I'm worried about how I'm going to top that card. LOL!) Hugs, dj
