Delightful Wednesday – Blues!

Hello there! How is everyone?

So the New Year brings a new theme for Delightful Wednesday at DIGITAL DELIGHTS and for 2016 Sandy and I have chosen to showcase Wendy’s awesome designs using a different colour each month.

So rather appropriately for the cold, dull month of January, and after the sparkle and fun (for some) of Christmas, we decided we felt a little Blue.  See what we did there!!!

To celebrate the New Year I made a pop-up box card using the super gorgeous MASQUERADE MARY and a sentiment from the WINTER TICKETS SENTIMENT SET.

We decided as a family not buy each other gifts this Christmas (except for our customary Secret Santa tradition) and so to get over the whole bah-humbug thing I bought myself a Brother ScanNCut!! I KNOW!!!  An extravagance that I am hoping not to regret at my leisure!  Anyway on its very first outing I used 2 of the pre-installed shapes to cut the bottle and glass and coloured and doodled on them to make them champagne worthy!!  The image and ticket is also cut using it.  No more fussy cutting! Result!!! J

Dies: Tattered Lace ‘Box Card’, ‘Balloons’ and ‘Clock’ – Signature Dies ‘Starburst’
Brother Scan N Cut Designs: Champagne Bottle and Glass
