New Beginnings

Hello Peeps. I have a cheery DT card today for our New Beginnings Challenge at Oldie But A Goodie.

This could be "new" anything and I decided to make a card to celebrate a new hobby!!
 Unusual, I know, but why not?!! and here it is...

I coloured Rosie with my Promarkers to match the extremely old papers from a Helz Cuppleditch decoupage pad and matted on to some matt fuschia pink mirri board. A computer generated sentiment finishes it off...nice and flat for posting too, although at the moment I can't think who I will give it to!! Oh well, another for the stock box!!

I am playing along here

Natalie and Amy #16 - One for the girlies
ABC Challenge - C is for colourful
Heck of a challenge - New (hobby in this case!)
Rhedd & Rosie #23 - Going dotty
Just for Fun - New
Just Inspirational - New

Thank you for popping in to see me today
