Show Us Your Goodies!

Well,the festivities are over and it's time to get back to the normal routine but before we do, let me share with you some of the crafting goodies that I got for Christmas. I must have been on the good girl list because I was lucky enough to get a new set of Copic Ciaos, 72 new colours to play with, aren't I a lucky girlie, my secret Santa bought me some scrummie papers and charms too. Just before Christmas I'd also bought myself some new Xcut Nesting Dies but hadn't got round to using them till this week. 

The Totally Ladybug Tuesday challenge this week is an "Anything goes using new stash"  So I coloured up Magnum using my new pens.

Used the Stamp die for a matt and used the star die which I folded and raised on foam pads.

After cutting an aperture here is the assembled card.

If you fancy treating yourself to Magnum or any of the  Ladybug cling stamps with your Christmas money,you are SO in luck, you can get more for your money in the January sales! (that's if the Ladybugs haven't wiped the shelves).

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Heartsong 29, Anything goes,
House Of Gilli, Anything goes,
IWD127, Anything goes,
Lawnscaping 25, Birthday,
MIM 70, Anything goes,
StampsR us,What you got for Christmas.
Thanks for stopping by,

I loved this the minute I saw it on the DT blog Julie, I just ordered this image as a result and he was on my gorgeous new year card!! Love what you have done with the stars may have to 'borrow' that, embellishments are so difficult for men and you just solved the problem!
