Rebel, birthday present, the sale continues and a new release!!!!

I've been sitting on (not literally!) my mom's birthday card for a couple of months now because I used an un-released image but I'm gonna show you anyway...just don't tell the boss lol. 

Here it is....

I haven't got a name for the image yet and what you see here isn't the whole image, I printed it 3 times on kraft cs, picked certain parts, 
cut them out with my Nesties and after coloring them with my Copics fit them behind my Die-namics circle trio. It's the first time I've colored on kraft...I'd been inspired by Jen over on Tiny Blue Butterfly and finally bit the bullet! Must say I really love the look and only yesterday colored another image printed on kraft....could be my new thang lol.

Do you like? 

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

ABC Challenges - Happy Birthday
Created With Love - Anything Goes
Make It Monday - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Try a new technique (coloring on kraft cs)
LEJ Designs - Stitching real or faux
My Grafico - Anything Goes
Sentimental Sundays - Negative Space

I realized the other day that I forgot to pick a winner for my birfday prezzie!!! 

The winner is....

Congratulations Vanessa...please email me with your address and I'll send your present :-D

Next on the agenda is the 70% off cling stamp's still ON!!! You still have time to add your favourite LCI stamps to your collection.

And finally the BIGGIE! The only way to start a challenge year is with a NEW RELEASE and a BLOG HOP!!!! Next week sees another FABULICIOUS LCI release and the DT and GD have been super busy creating up a storm and I can confirm that you will LOVE (cuz I've had a sneak peek) what they've made to inspire you and get those creative juices flowing if you're stuck in the January rut!!!
