Esmerelda's New Year is not off to a good start!!!

January 1st 2012
Firstly - HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my blogging friends!!!!! I started my blog 1 year ago on January 1st 2011 so this is also my First Blogversary!!! I think I'd better organise some Blog Candy for my followers!!


My first post for the new year is for the new Gingersnap Creations Colour Challenge - Soft Yellows & White. I've made this cute little card with a gorgeous collage image from one of my favourite Etsy Stores - Art Tea Life. I used a Kaszazz Chandelier stamp for the background card and I typed the little "saying" on my computer. I added a star brad to her wand and some little "diamantis" to look like "bits" of the broken chandelier LOL!!!


I called her "Esmerelda" because I thought of the character from the Bewitched TV Show - Esmerelda was the witch who's spells never worked properly!!!! And my little Esmerelda is looking like she might have a lot of explaining to do!!!!


All the best for 2012!!!!
