Always Follow Your Heart

Is it me, or is time flying again?? I can't believe how quickly the holidays disappeared, I only blinked and it was over but it's now time for a new year and even though my crafty mojo seems to think it's still on holiday, I have begun working on new projects and, I have also got something a little bit exciting in the pipeline!! More about that very soon...
But in the meantime, whilst I'm working on lots of new exciting things, I thought that over the next few days I'd show you a few of my projects that I made at the end of 2011. Starting with this one... I hope you like it!
Some of you might have seen the adverts in some of the crafting mags advertising Kuretake's new online shop and as part of their DT, I was lucky enough to get to work with some fab goodies from Basically Bare, together with all the gorgeous inky products from Kuretake themselves. This card is one of those featured in the adverts and uses a few of the items from Basically Bare.

I used Kuretake's Alcohol Ink on the acrylic buttons and the Art and Graphic Twin pens on the background die cut. I also inked up a my Tim Holtz and Andy Skinner stamps with them and then stamped directly onto card.
Thanks for taking the time to pop over to my blog and take a look and, thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post ~ they were all appreciated.

I'll be around to visit all your blogs later today, when I get to finally sit down with a cuppa.
Bye for now and see you tomorrow!
Love Emma

  7. Happy New Year to you, Emma. I hope it's a good one for you. You've certainly got off to a cracking start, although I'm not sure you ever stopped creating looking back at the last few posts!! Santa sounds as though he brought some lovely crafting goodies for you to play with, along with the chocolate of course.
    I loved looking back over your year of cards too, so many gorgeous ones and all so different.
    I can't wait to see what you create this year.
