Fab'n'Funky Blog Hop

Welcome to the 1st Fab'n'Funky Challenge for 2012 and to celebrate the start of New Year we are having a blog hop . . . well why not especially as Christmas and the New Year are now over and we all need a pick-me-up before the January Blues set in!

Okay . . . you should have hopped over from 
Alexis and collected her number, however if you have popped over to visit me just to say hi but now want to join in the fun, please pop back to the Fab'n'Funky Challenge Blog where all will be explained. Now, my number is 3, make a note of it because you will need my number and every other number on each DT blog at the very end of the blog hop. To collect your next number pop over to Ginny.

Don't forget to also enter this weeks challenge and the theme is  . . .

"Something New"
 

My "Something New" is this adorable stamp from Lili of the Valley.  I took ultimate advantage of their 10% off event in December and picked up quite a few new stamps.  I coloured the image with Promarkers, using Cerise, Amethyst and Cool Grey 4.  I cut out the image using the Spellbinders Labels Four Small. 

The silver mirri-paper was embossed with a Craft Concepts cupcake embossing folder.  Wishing I had an actual cupcake just now!  The pink and purple papers are from Create and Craft.  I have used them in several cards and think they are so versatile.  I stamped the sentiment in black ink but as I've had the set for so long I can't remember the brand.  They are definitely my go-to sentiments though.

Happy crafting.
