Good evening,
Hope you are all well and have not been caught up in too much chaos here in the UK due to the weather!!

I am here to share a very CAS card that I have made to fit in with the Friends theme at Less is More.

I loved colouring this cute image from DoCrafts.  There isn't much to say except the image is coloured with Polychromo and Prisma pencils blended with sansador.  I have added some doodling around the edge and then matted the image onto Bazzil Basics Ruby Slipper Cardstock.

I made a very CAS card again!
Using Forever Friends image coloured with Polychromos and Promarkers.  I have done some paper piecing on the basket and some doodling round the edge.......nothing else to say about it really!

Well I have just seen a few flakes of snow falling here so I wonder if we will get another covering of snow today.   Definitely a day for crafting :)

Something New at Ready Teddy Go

Its been a while since you have seen me in blogland but I am back now.    Let me start by wishing you all  a very Happy New Year and hope its a happy and  healthy one for you and your families.

The moving house went really well, very smoothly in fact.   Crafting and blogging had to take a back seat for a while as we had a lot of sorting to do, we have been in our new house 7 weeks tomorrow and it definetely feels like home.......we love it.  The craft room was the last room on the list to get sorted but we are almost there.

So I am here today to tell you about a new challenge at Ready Teddy Go We want to see you create a card for

"Something New"

It could be a new home, new job or a new baby, etc.  Just make sure you use a bear or teddy bear as the main image or you we will not be able to keep your entry in the draw for the prize.  You can enter up to four times as long as you enter a new project each time.

This month's sponsor is My Mum's Craft Shop with a £10 voucher to spend in their shop.

My card is using a Forever FRiends stamp for a new baby....... coloured with Polychromo pencils.
All the other embellies are from my stash.  I have added liquid pearls to the background although I think I got a bit carried away with them!
Thanks for stopping by today, I will hopefully not be disappearing again for such a long time.
Enjoy your day and I look forward to visiting your blogs.
Hugs Sally xx
