Beginning something new

 Good morning all.  It's my turn to pick the challenge for this fortnight over at Cardz4galz.  I have chosen the theme of 'New Beginnings'.  This could be a new baby, a new job or, as I have chosen for my card, newly married life together.

As some of you will know, I'm on a stash busting mission at the moment.  It's an endless and thankless task.  I have found so many things I'd forgotten about and some stuff I didn't know I had.  When one of my friends moved house she game me boxes of her old craft stuff.  In amongst it was a folder full of decoupage sheets and toppers.  I tend to do more stamping nowadays so they had lain in the box unlooked at.  I'm glad I went through the folder though as it gave me a chance to used some old wedding backing papers that I just couldn't envision using.  It turned out that they went pretty well together.

I was so pleased with how this looked I did two more for my Church and Charity boxes.  So, that's one sheet and three pieces of paper gone from my stash.  Told you - it's an endless task.

I want to say thank you to Pauline Bird from Crafting with Cotnob.  She does such beautiful things with toppers and when I can't see how something will work I often go to her blog for inspiration.  This was one of those cards.  Thanks Pauline.  Keep up the good work.

OK, let's see your New Beginnings please - otherwise I will have nothing to comment on.

Thanks for reading.

  5. Such a sweet, adorable, and entirely cheerful greeting. Much as I've long wished they would, toppers and decoupage offerings have yet to take serious hold in the world of North American paper crafting. All the more reason for me to stock up on them should I ever have the good fortunate of visiting the UK!
