Crafts Galore Encore January 2019

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Personally, I'm glad to see the back of 2018. It's been a roller coaster ride for our family. Some of it very good, some of it very bad and the effects will last us a lifetime. But, there is hope that 2019 will be better and easier to cope with.
Now ...

.... Welcome to my first post of 2019 for
Thank you to everyone who joined in with December's challenge. The winners have been announced on the challenge blog. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. There is a full list of rules on the challenge blog.

Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

and our sponsor this month is:
Sparkle N Sprinkle
who are offering a $15 voucher to our lucky winner.

I have made an 8"x 8" card to celebrate 2019.

For the background I layered red, white and blue card and wrapped the layers with green silk ribbon before mounting onto the front of a card blank.
I then punched out lots of stars and stuck them down all around the outside.

The team were generously given a choice of some Sparkle N Sprinkle images to use and I chose the Balloon Bunch set. I ran the main balloon image through a graphics program and changed the colours to the ones I wanted.

The 'happy everything' words are part of the Balloon Bunch set. I added the rest of the words to make a topical sentiment and placed it next to the image before printing. I edged the topper with red ink before placing on the card front.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog where you can see the wonderful projects and cards created by our talented team. Grab some inspiration while you're there and enter your "Anything Goes" creations in the January challenge.

Thank you all for your support this past year.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy, prosperous and crafty filled 2019!
