A brand new beginning

Over on Tuesday Taggers we decided we needed a revamp - a place where we can try new ideas, have a bit of fun and challenge the team as well as the players. Along with the funky background, variety of challenges and new header we decided to go for a whole new name too! So here we are

Do stop by the blog where the details are explained clearly. This week is week 1 and so is "make a card" and the theme is "new beginnings"

My card is for a special friend who is starting a new job this week. Always a scary but exciting time I wanted to let her know I am thinking of her. Ive used my fav colour combo which she will no doubt recognise as her birthday card in November was the same colours! All the stamps are by Stampin up as are the lush papers. Lace from stash and the gorgeous flower from my lovely friend Georgina thanks love x
I have also added my own writing for the Good Luck sentiment. I have always been afraid to do this sort of thing in the past however journalling and some lovely compliments about my writing have helped me grow in confidence. I still think other folks writing is nicer than my own but feel less like I have "spoiled" my work by writing on it.

My team mates have done some fabulous cards too and a lovely one from our Guest designer too so do stop by and see what we have done with the blog and check them out x

Have a fab time with Try it on Tuesday!

  4. Your writing is beautiful Janet. It looks great on this lovely, lovely card. The blues are perfect and your friend will love and appreciate it I'm sure. A new job is always nerve wracking and exciting at the same time.
