January is a busy month in our family - so many birthdays!!  So I thought I'd better start making a few new cards for my stash.  I love the colours from this week's Colour Q, although I've had to use Pool Party instead of Cool Caribbean.  Love the sketch and have used it exactly as it is!  I used design paper for the background and die cut the flag from deep aqua.  Instead of a circle, I opted for a flower and stamped this directly onto some scrap white card.  I embossed the flower and then cut it out and finished off by adding some glitter.  I'm not good at bows, so I decided to go for a faux bow and stamped it directly onto the card and added a sweet little paper button (new die set) on top.  Inside is a mat in pale aqua and a very bold sentiment.

I must apologise for the photos - it was so dark yesterday that I had to take the photos on my desk!  It's very hard to take a decent photo with no shadows and keep it straight too!  I really think I'm going to have to invest in a small photo studio - an idea for Christmas!!!  I'm off out to a Stampin' Up! class at my up-line, Karin.  Should be lots of fun! 

Before I go, I'd like to welcome my latest follower - so please to say hello and welcome to Melissa.  That's it for now - see you soon.
