Happy blingy New Year!

Hello blogworld

And welcome to 2013 at Created by Sarah - hope you all had a fabulous and safe New Year!

To start the new year off with a bang it's a new challenge over at Flat Friends and this time the challenge is to go 'blingy'!  So we'd like to see, along with your Emma Canning digi, any sort of bling - gems, rhinestones, glitter - that sort of thing!

I must admit I do struggle sometimes with bling - it's not that I don't like it, I'm partial to a bit of Glamour Dust on my cards!, but I'm never quite sure whether I've gone OTT, so I tend to play it safe and go for less rather than more.

So here we go, this is my first card of the new year - hope you like!

Front shot:

The arty farty:

Her close up!

I used:

Emma Canning: Taylor Bell
coloured with my Promarkers (I've not been brave enough to try the Copics yet!)

Nestie scalloped oval
Memory Box for the flourish

First Edition - Up, Up and Away

Anything else?
Ribbon and rhinestones from my stuff

There we go, that's me got 2013 of to a flying carding start - lets hope I keep going eh!

See you soon,

Very pretty card and just the right amount of bling!

Missed you in blogland but SWMBO is more only have them for such a sort time and when they are grown and out on their own you remember these days!!! Fond, I promise!!!

My room is quite big 12 x 15 I think, but sadly it doesn't have a window. We have a suite for additional income. The suite got the windows instead.
My DH hates my craft room and calls it the dungeon!!! teehee The other side of my room is the laundry room and the suite is on the other side of that. Now that I can hear the buzzer, my laundry is always caught up! now...teehee

I've only just got the chance to catch up with my comments, the girls have been keeping me very busy. School starts tomorrow and children's centre groups for my youngest start on Tuesday...I can't wait for things to get back to normal!
Love the card, very pretty with just the right amount of bling.
