Hello lovelies - how are you today? I'm a bit apprehensive today - I have a swimming lesson! Now I can swim - but I'm not technically very good - I tend to stick my head as far out of the water as possible and it results in a sore back. So I'm having lessons to try to learn how to swim properly! My girls are wonderful in the water and I need to start catching up with them!!!! Wish me luck!
Crafty Sentiments are starting a new challenge today - the theme is New! That can be anything to do with new - new year, new home, new baby or even using new stash ......we've all got it! The prize is three digis of your choice! I used a digi called Henry on my card that you can get here. I also used my new gelli plate and this card actually has my first ever gelliplate print on it!!!
The image is coloured with speccies and diecut with a spellbinders die. I love the gelliplate - so much fun - really easy to use and easy to clean up too - great stuff! Long may it last!
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Lexi'slexiscreations: Anything goes
IDICrobynsfetishchallengeblog: Use a digi
come and get it challengescomeandgetitchallenges: use something new.
Thankyou for all your comments yesterday - you're very kind! Don't forget my candy is still running!
Big Hugs and hope to see you again soon!

You certainly did a great job with your gelli plate, the background is wonderful. Good luck with the swimming, once you conquer putting your head under, you will take to it like a duck to water I reckon! Hugs, Anne xReplyDelete
