Creative Cowgirls Challenge #4 - Something New

I hope everyone had a fantastic New Year.

This fortnight over at Creative Cowgirls Challenge we are having a Something New Challenge.  Unfortunately this year I didn't get anything new for Christmas (what!! I hear you cry, When this was mentioned to OH he said "I didn't know you wanted craft stuff".  New Year Resolution - consider changing OH for newer model). 

For the Something New Challenge I have used stash that I have never used before (what's that you say, stash you bought and never used!!!) I know I admit it I was a naughty girl but I have used them now so I think I need to go and buy some new stash in case another challenge like this turns up (don't you agree?).

The sponsor for this challenge is Pollycraft who have kindly donated a voucher for the winner.  
The talented Paula over at Pollycraft has a variety of designs covering any occasion you could ever need.  There are fairies, bears and Maurice (who you can see on my card below) plus too many more to name here.  Most of her images can be bought separately or on special offer for the set.

The Winner will receive from Pollycraft the following voucher
the Winners Badge to display with pride

the TOP 3 will each receive the 
TOP 3 Badge to display with pride

My card is using Maurice - ready for business he was such a joy to colour I have done 3 in different colours.  My daughter chose this colour way to go with the DCWV papers I have used.  The papers are from the DCWV 12 x 12 stack 6 and I have used a beige card from a Papermania card pack for the base card and mats.  The edges have been distressed with scissors and swiped with Frayed Burlap distress ink.  Maurice was coloured with Promarkers and his glasses glazed with Anita's 3D clear gloss finish.  The "Best Wishes" was stamped using stamps from Personal Impressions and the ring border from Scrappy Cat.

Hop over to the Challenge now and join in you have until 15th January to enter.
