New Beginnings


The new year is approaching fast, sometimes it comes with big changes as for a young relative who's moving to his first own home. The kitchen has some lovely aqua tiles hence the colour of the card, he'll also get an aqua bowl for the popcorn he so much love....fortunately he doesn't visit my blog, so no spoiler warning :)

Challenges:
CASology:Toast
Time Out Challenges: 'With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning'


Materials used:
Papermania star image stamped with Pistachio Distress ink, Tilda glass image stamped with black Memento ink and coloured with Pistachio and Peacock Feather Distress inks with a pen nib. Some highlights were added with a white Posca pen, Aqua Distress Stickles and Wink of Stella. The sentiment is stamped with Exchangeables alphabet stamps and black Memento ink onto the Panduro card stock.

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated! So, do you have any plans or wishes for the next year? I'm opting for the exercise more choice...it usually lasts for a month, maybe I can stretch it to two months, cheers!!! 

Love and hugs
Maarit

  4. How fun for this young man to be moving into a new home! I love your card for him Maarit! And I bet the bowl that is the same color will be perfect filled with his favorite popcorn treat! Somehow I think this young man will be one happy young man when he receives these goodies. Happy New Year!!! Hugs, Brenda

  12. Happy New Year! What a thoughtfully designed card to accompany the popcorn bowl for your young relative. I love the way you've added the 'contents' to the glass...also the 'sparkle reflection' of the glass too. It looks so pretty with the starry background as well. TFS & Hugs
