How weird is it to be writing 2014?!
HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL.......
Well it is a new year and a brand new me. I have made a list of all the things I want to work on and change this year....so far, I have made an excellent start.
Well, not only is it a brand new year, it is also a brand new month which means New Challenge Time over on The SeemaCrafts Challenge Blog.

January is a tricky time for crafters. You have just had a very busy few months with christmas cards and Christmas projects and had a small break over the festive period. You have your Christmas stuff to pack up and get back into the mind set of ' back to normality'.
We understand this problem, so we have made Januarys Challenge nice and easy....
What is easier than that??!! Nothing lol
What I have Made
I have seen so many gorgeous cards with mixes of patterned papers, but I have never really had the guts to do this myself.
I found a boy themes paper pad that I have had for a while. I decided to pluck up the courage and just go for it.
I used 4 different papers, three of these being patterned. I have to say, I am pleased with how they have mixed.
I used a tent fold card. The image is a Lili Of The Valley (LOTV) ones that I have decoupages myself to give some depth to go along with the many layers of the card.
The card was finished off with lots of small flat backed gems and a little sentiment I found in my stash.
I really like this card and I am glad that I went ahead and gave it ago. Keep an eye out for more patterned paper mixed cards from me!
As always, I really hope that this make has inspired you to pop over to see mine and the other Design Teams work, over on the blog and join in. You have a while month, so no excuses about time lol
Thank you as, as always, for all your visits and your amazing comments that many of you leave, they really do make me happy.
