Happy 2011!

I just had to had to get a post in on the 1/1/11, right? Wow, it feels good typing that! Hehe.

I have two cards to share with you today, using a digi from Fairy Dust Crafts, it was meant to be for a DT creation for Lexi, but I sort of side tracked and went off in the wrong direction completely. The cards are similar to each other in a way - both using the same image, sentiment, and paper pack from Cosmo Cricket - Earth Love collection.

These photos also give you a glimpse at my new custom watermark, which I recently bought from Whimsy Stamps, its lovely! I {love} the tree! :)

Here is the first card..

I love this image 'Brooke - Thinking of you' she is so versatile! As I will show in a few more weeks, as she can fit with a variety of sentiments!

I'm not entirely sure whether I like this paper pack as much as some of the other Cosmo Cricket ones I own, I find the colours a little difficult to use at times, but I think these two cards have turned out quite well, and flow together along with the way I have chosen to colour the images with ProMarkers.

I would like to enter the first card into these challenges:
× 2 Sisters - Challenge 20 - Thinking of You
× Frosted Designs - Fabulous Friday Challenge - 'Use a quote'

I have to mention, that while doing these cards my mojo seemed to be diminishing by the minute, and if I'm honest; I'm not 100% happy with the way these cards turned out. But hey, you like some loads, and you like others not so much I guess. I just hope that Mr. Mojo decides to return home pretty soon!!

P.S. Keep posted for the first ever installement of 'Christmas Crunch Sunday' tomorrow!! :) oOoOooo. Luckily over Christmas, while the buzz from receiving my Cuttlebug as a present was still strong, I made some Christmas cards for this series in advance. Hence why to may see my old watermark pop up a few more times!

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope the effects of last nights party are affecting you to badly! Hehe. xo
