Ladybug Crafts Challenge – Give Thanks!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  (Sorry if that was a bit too loud!)

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas too, and that Santa brought you lots of crafty goodness.  I know that he was very good to me, bless him!

I am here to show a card I made for the new monthly challenge starting today over on the Ladybug Crafts blog and the challenge is ‘Give Thanks’, and I have plenty to be thankful for.

I made this card to say thank you to my step-niece for her thoughtful Christmas gift.  I chose to use the image Thank You (rather appropriate I thought) from Saturated Canary which you can find as a digi here and I coloured her with Derwent Inktense Pencils (guess what I got for Christmas!). 

The flowers are a combination of Heartfelt Creations Delicate Asters and Tonic punches with flat back pearls in the centres.

The banner and corner are from Tattered Lace.

And there you go. Have a fabulous crafty New Years day!

See ya!

Scribbly hugs

Jane xx
