Happy New Year to Ewe !!




    Happy New Year to Ewe !!     
   To begin the new year I have a couple of new challenges. One is to master my new computer, the old one finally curled up it's USB's on the Friday before Christmas, great timing! I'm getting to grips with a new layout but I'm struggling with the loss of some very familiar functions, I'm sure it's all in there somewhere I just have to be patient and search for it. To add insult to injury it doesn't seem to like my old but perfectly good printer, I don't need to replace it, it still works!!!!!
     My second new challenge is much better news.........I have been asked to join Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra Design Team!!!  Yippee, now I have a very good reason to make Christmassy projects all year round, as if I needed an excuse.
     Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra is a monthly Anything Christmas Goes challenge blog with the chance to win a prize kindly donated by Bugaboo Stamps. The design team will show you some great ideas each month made using Bugaboo digital stamps, so please pop over and take a look.
     My Bugaboo image for this month is called Merry Christmas to 'ewe'. It comes as a separate image and sentiment. For these little cards I have chosen to use just the image and generate my own sentiment to fit the occasion.
     The stamp has been printed out on A6 card and folded to make small thank ewe cards for my son to use. To batch make this card I chose A6 so that I can get four from an A4 sheet and they will fit into a C6 envelope (unfolded)  for posting. I also kept the decoration simple using just four alcohol markers to colour the picture.
     I love this image so I shall make some cards with it later in the month ready for next year, we have family in Wales so I'm sure they'll be well received!
     If you have the time please pop over and join us at Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra and start your cards for next year, it really does take the pressure off in December if you make just a couple each week.
