Try It on Tuesday - New Stash!!

Happy New Year to you All!!

Well here we are with the first challenge for 2013 at Try It On Tuesday. We'd like you to tell us what crafty goodies came in your stocking and show us what you have made with them. There's no particular theme, and you can make anything you like and upload to enter. Please, please read the rules and be aware that you can only be considered for Prize draw and Top 5 if you link to 5 or less challenges including ours.

I know it might be hard to believe but other than a pack of buttons, I didn't get anything crafty for Christmas. (I guess I must just be too naughty!!)

I did get a little money, so although most of it is being kept aside for a NEW PRINTER, and some has already been spent on t'internet, I did have a little splurge at our local hobbycraft sale  and picked up a couple of stamps ('cos I haven't got enough). For some reason this particular one has been calling to me for a while so when I saw it in the sale I thought I would give in and have it. (I'm showing you the coloured sheet because let's face it, an acrylic stamp takes a pretty poor photo.


Christmas presents, of course, mean 'Thank You' cards so I made up this simple little design using the layered butterfly as the main feature. After colouring in the butterfly I got a bit stuck in orange mode, not a colour I usually associate with cardmaking .
Hope you like it.

Unlike me, you have a couple of weeks to play with your new stash, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with. So come and play along with us at Try It On Tuesday, we'd love to see you there.

You Hobbycraft must be better than mine, Cindy - the butterfly stamp looks gorgeous (as does your card). My only crafty present was a tin of Intense pencils (although I bought myself plenty of presents LOL). Happy New Year!
