CCT#302 - Banish the Blues

Hmmm - let's gloss over the total lack of posts for November and December eh? I think that would be best ........ I have been doing my CCT cards but have completely NOT blogged any of them. Epic. Fail.

Onwards and upwards. I am really going to try and photograph and blog my crafty creations more - it's not a resolution you understand (no, definitely not), more of a determination to re-capture something I used to absolutely love and have gotten out of. Two moves in the last 15 months would do that to a person mind you so I hope you will let me off lol!!

Anyway it's a whole new year of challenges over on the Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog. When I printed out the year's challenges this morning it was like having my whole year flash before me and I really felt inspired to get into my Craft Room and make cards. The fact that they are not Christmas related is definitely a bonus. DH put my Christmas crafting boxes in the attic and my Craft Room is now blisfully C-word free. Yippeeee. I totally get fed up with it and fellow card-makers will understand that when you start planning and creating for Christmas in September you are sick of it when it finally arrives. Maybe that's why my decorations rarely see Hogmanay!!

This week the theme is to banish those post-Christmas blues with something a bit fun so I have used these stamps by Creative Expressions to create a little fun. The two figures were from the Murray & Ethel Set 2 stamp sheet and I masked them off to put them together before colouring with Promarkers. The sentiment is by Paper Makeup. The background paper was a magazine freebie (Simply Homemade) and all other card is Stampin' Up, as is the ribbon. Some Craftwork Cards Candi finishes it off.
