SOOOOOO EXCITED! CHRISTY PICKED THIS CARD AS HER CHOICE THIS WEEK FOR ‘PERFECT PRINCESS’! THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE ENCOURAGEMENT … IT IS ALWAYS A THRILL and a great boost to the mojo!

Hi bloggies! Happy New Year!!!

I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas full of joy and happiness and that the year ahead is a really special one for you all! I haven’t managed to do much stamping over the last week while Gav has been on holidays … but I did do a little. So … I thought it was time to share a card with you all … and after I did this card I realised that the deadline was closer than I thought … so today is a good day to post … in order to get it in on time! This card is for the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge #15.

Did you notice the sparkle??? I used my new “Irridescent Ice” Embossing Powder for the first time! How easy!!! And … look at that pretty opaley sparkle! I do love it. What I like about this new EP is that it doesn’t ‘rub off’ like the Dazzling Diamonds does when you just use glue. And … much less mucking around than mixing Heat & Stick with the DD! I think it is a new fav … and with my Versamark pen … I am sure I will be using this new sparkle heaps! 😀

I am preparing this as a scheduled post (sneaking in a little computer time). So … no New Year news from the Lowies just yet. Perhaps in a day or so??? Tomorrow is the public holiday & my s-i-l’s b’day … then … I will be in Sydney all day Tuesday … but I hope to be back on Wednesday! Drive safely over the New Year holiday period! Hugs xxx

  1. Another breathtakingly beautiful card with this DP Andrea. A shoe in for top honours I think. The Iridescent Ice is so PURDY.
    Have a magical 2012 and fingers crossed the jpurney is sl less bumpy that 2011 was. Drive safe to Syd. Lots of nutters out there!! MWAH ooxx
    – Not sure about the ‘top honours’ thing … but it was so nice picking up my stamps after such a long break! Thanks for being here … nice and early in the New Year! I hope you read the stats in my next post … cos you were my busiest commenter … with 295 comments during 2011!!!! Woo hoo! You are a STAR!!! Hugs xxx
