Whats New - Crafty Calendar Challenge!

Hi I hope you have had a good weekend! I have had such a busy weekend making clothes for Carrie's teddy called "Lili"! Santa left Lily for Carrie with a tag on her asking Carrie to look after because she didnt have a Mummy, she has hardly put it down! We were looking in the Bear Factor store at outfits for the teddy but they are expensive so she only got a few. This all planted a seed in my head so when we got home out came the sewing machine and i got to it! Lili now has a better wardrobe than me and my sewing machine was probably  in shock, its hardly ever had material near it..only card and papers!

Anyway enough of that. I am here with my DT card for Crafty Calendar Challenge! The theme this month is
"Whats New?!"
It can be anything new at all from new stash to new baby, new year, new job...whatever is new in your life!

The sponsor this month is the one and only Elphine House Australia. As my readers know i design for EHA and have been with them since the company opened so its special to me. I have got 2 EHA stamps to give away as the prize.
Very Proud to Design For......

  1. What a super sweet card, Lynne! Just so HAPPY and beautiful at the same time. Love your color pinks, and the shading. Your coloring is beautiful, too. I also like the pink butterflies on the right, and the panel you punched them from on the left - I hadn't thought of doing that. Hmmm, I need to pin your card to remind me to do that, too! Thanks for the inspiration.

  2. Gorgeous card, love the image & your layout & embellishments are fab!
