TYI - First challenge of 2009

Hi everyone, since the lst challenge of 2009 for TYI
was for a tag made with new stash - I had a play with
my new Nesties. I like them! Thanks TYI for the
opportunity to use them along with some stamps I've
had an age and only used once. I also tried some background
colouring - it sort of works! Obviously one of those things that improve with trying - she says with fingers crossed!

Best wishes to you all for a happy and successful crafting 2009.

Hi Eileen - all the best to you and yours for 2009 - may it bring you all that you would wish for.
Love the tag - I'm just thinking about mine - I'm in a wishy washy mood.
Love your Nesties - I can't make my mind up which one to get so will probably end up with both (Lol)
