New Beginnings - Joanna Sheen Challenge

Hiya everyone, 

This is our first new challenge for 2013 at the Joanna Sheen Challenge blog so it seemed fitting to have a "New beginnings" theme.  It seems like a lot of other challenges have decided on a similar theme. 

My card has been made using the House Mouse stamp "Cosy toes" which is available here.  I have coloured in my image with a mixture of promarkers and flexmarkers.  
The washing line paper is from my DCWV boy "Nana's nursery" stack which I love.  I decided to go a little clean and simple with this one as my House Mouse challenge card for tomorrows challenge was quite busy so I thought I'd mix it up a bit.  As this was quite striking I decided to just use my swiss dots embossing folder on some plain white card for the rest of it to add some texture.  I do love my embossing folders - I have lots but swiss dots is probably the one I use the most.

This is the first card I've made for the Joanna sheen challenge as I had several months off crafting as I had Nathan at the end of October.  This is a recent piccie of him when he started smiling - what a little cutie!  I'm very biassed! Lol

Thanks for looking!
