Happy New Year !!

It was wonderful to see all your fabulous 'New Beginnings' projects, thank you to all who took part.  The winner of the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Journaling Tickets is No.2, Hazel,  chosen by Random Org Number Generator.  Congratulations Hazel!  Please email Mandy your address and we'll pop them in the post to you.

Challenge #10 is Just a Note...

Thank You Notes, Notelets, Notebooks and Musical Notes are a few examples...basically anything related to notes!  We look forward to seeing what you come up with.


These are such a cute sized card measuring 9cm x 12.5cm (approx 3" x 5").  After die cutting the butterflies I added Star Dust Stickles.  By using different papers and buttons each one of these little cards is an original in it's own right!

  The Ribbon Girl: Natural Jute Button Twine

On my card and matching tag I added musical notes using Tim Holtz Symphony Tissue Tape.  I've taken up rather a lot of space on this post so if you pop over to my blog you can read more about this project there!

This card and matching note pad and pillow box would make an awesome thank you for that  special person.   I used Rosie's L'll papers.  The cuttlebug die and emboss  butterfly with pearl rhinestones.  I put white lace on each one.

We have some homemade goodies to give away for this challenge, 6 crocheted flowers, 4 butterfly embellishments and 2 heart toppers together with some little doilies which seem to be very popular amongst card makers at the moment.
