A New Chapter

Hey there πŸ™‚ Well, January is half done, and *hopefully* winter will soon be over. Last week we had an unbelievable cold snap, with temperatures falling to -38 C!!! Good thing we’re tough, and all that means is an extra layer when we go outside, lol. I have an inspiration card for the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group that doesn’t reflect those temperatures at all πŸ™‚ Our theme this month is “New”….that can be a new baby, new job, new crafty stuff….anything that fits into the “New” category πŸ™‚ The DT was given an extra challenge when making their projects, and that was to use our LEAST favorite color…..well…that was an easy one for me….I absolutely loathe the color peach!!! Not only crafting wise, either, in clothes, decor, etc…..anything!!! I used the lovely Silently Sparkling image and colored it with my Copics.

I was hoping that using such a gorgeous image would make working with this color a bit easier….it helped, a bit. I found some papers that were peach/peach print and set to layering things up. As is often the case when one is working with something they dislike, things didn’t go too easily. After walking away from this a number of times, I got the idea of implementing a book page…..that, and some stencilling in black, made this project come together. A fitting sentiment, some twine, and some black ball embellishments finished the card off πŸ™‚

I’d like to enter this in the following:
