Happy New Year & Crafty Bargains

Happy New Year to you all x

Has anyone got any crafty bargains yet in the sales? I treated myself to some Makey Bakey Mice stuff from Crafters Companion but that's about it at the moment. Visited The Range the other morning but none of the crafting stuff was on sale.

My first card today is another gorjuss decoupage one. The small paper panel is from a papercellar 6x6 pack called Victorian Burgundy while the larger paper panel came with the decoupage kit. Layered both onto black card and mounted onto white card.

I used the flourish stamp again and highlighted area's with white liquid pearls. The flower is the sunflower I always seem to be using (cut from the Cameo) with a Candi added to the centre and gloss to highlight the top petals. Three black jewels added to finish it off.

Pretty much the same for the next card with pink liquid pearls on the flourish and Washi tape across the centre. I used an accordion sticker from a Dovecraft back to basics pack.

Well, I still have several more images from the pack to make up but at least I will have lots of cards to send out to friends next year.

Take care everyone and I hope you all manage to pick up a crafty bargain or two x
