Saying Hello


With the start of a new year, thought it'd be fun to find some challenges I haven't participated in.  I've seen other people's entries for Neat & Tangled and the current challenge is "Saying Hello." Couldn't pass this one up since one of my 2014 goals is to send more "just because" cards.  I have N&T sets on my wishlist, but none in hand. Fortunately they offer free digis & this one was perfect! I won't bore you with my process to get it printed the size I wanted (techy I am not!), but first try on my Bo-Bunny printed paper was perfect making me very happy--LOL! Doesn't Spellbinders Labels 14 look like it was made for the image? 
I actually ended up with a Valentine, which is great since I'm planning to send a lot more than last year. 
The heart die cut is Memory Box which I dry embossed & sprayed with Glimmer Mist, making this also eligible for the challenge at Die Cut Divas. I sponged the printed paper edges in white ink. Are you trying out some new challenges?  I'd love to hear about them. Thanks for taking time to visit.

  18. Hurray for it working out! I'm terribly not-techy and have so much trouble getting things to print the right size, so I hear ya! Love how this card came together :)
    As for new challenges...I'm combining my last year's resolution to play with jingle belles all year to include Merry Monday also, and they just set up a dedicated challenge page. http://merrymondaychristmaschallenge.blogspot.ca/
