Crafts Galore Encore January 2023

 Happy New Year everyone!

Here's hoping 2023 is going to be a healthy, happy and prosperous year for us all.

It's gong to be a busy week to start the year. The Christmas tree needs dismantling, the decorations need packing away and the children are still off school and need entertaining. And I still need to find time to play with my new crafty presents.

Meanwhile .....

.... there is a new challenge starting today at

Thank you to everyone who joined in with last month'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:
who is offering a prize of 2 digi images for our lucky randomly drawn winner.

I have made an 8"x 8" (20 x 20cm) card to celebrate the beginning of the new year.

I have used papers from The Gift of Giving paper pad by Craft Consortium. I have matted the papers onto red card. I printed the sentiment and cut out the individual words. I matted them onto the red card.

The image I chose is called Happy Hour. I coloured it with my Copics and matted it onto the red card.

The paper pad has a page of just images and I cut some balloons and the champagne bottle and glasses out for embellishments. I fixed them to the card with foam pads for dimension.

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

I have entered this card in the following challenges:
