We are back!!!

Yep, The Cuttlebug Spot is back and ready to kick off the New Year with a card challenge celebrating New Years!!! We took a little time off for the holidays to spend with family and friends but are ready to see your amazing work once again! So, stop off at The Cuttlebug Spot for the challenge, to see all the amazing DT work and link your card for a chance to win a little something!!!

I used scraps from my Christmas Joy layout to make this card to fill a challenge over at Scrapbooking Deals 4 U. Each of the scrap pieces were embossed with different folders: Swiss Dots, Snowflakes, Moraccan Screen (sp) and Script. Copics used to color and that is it - a very simple, and not so typical card from me this time!!

My Card:


I've had this stamp for a while and a sentiment that I have wanted to use but I've been talking with an old friend of mine from high school trying to help her through some stuff she is going through. I decided this image was so cute and fit the situation as if I were closer we'd go have a drink and talk it out until she felt better. Since I can't be there I figured this card would let her know I am thinking about her and as soon as possible one of us will get out to see the other and have that drink in person!

Thanks for stoppin' by and happy scrappin'!!!

Just love that stamp. Your card is fabulous. Hope your New Year is the best.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
