First card of 2012 Creative inspirations thanks

Hey everyone! Well I do hope to get back to my crafting and blogging self soon! I still have all the xmas stuff to get away and the kiddies are still off school until tomorrow, but then it's hopefully back to normality! So I guess I am pretty later than most for my first card of 2012. I know I blogged on Jan 1st but that card was made in 2011 so strictly speaking this is the first card I have made in 2012. At creative inspirations this wk we have the theme of giving thanks. Perfect for sending out after all the fab goodies santa brought us! We are being sponsored by the fab Handy hippo who are giving away some pro markers as a prize!
For my card I have used papers from Prima alla prima range, along with flowers from WOC (feeling the need to buy some more now!) some fab ribbon given to me by my secret santa (thanks Aunty Sue!) butterfly from little snippets and sentiment from Waltzingmouse. My sweet image is from tickled Pink. The funniest thing though is my background gauze (yes not cheesecloth today) hubby thought he broke his toes yesterday, he stubbed them badly and couldn't walk so I had to strap them up and the gauze I used was too big so I had to cut it in half. I looked at the spare half of gauze and thought how fab it would look on my card! Lol hubby was not impressed that I hadn't even strapped up his toes and was planning out what crafty things I could do with the spare gauze!
My sweet image has been coloured with prisma pencils and edged in vintage photo distress ink. Tickled Pink are actually on summer Hols at the mo over in Oz but the shop will be back open on Jan 12th.
I would like to enter this into Incy wincy anything goes, Craft your passion anything goes with distressing, The pink elephant anything goes, The cutie pie challenge use a sentiment, Cupcake cards and crafts anything goes, OSAAT use a digi and Pile it on anything goes.
Thanks for coming by y blog again folks, please check out the rest of the teams creations!
Big hugs
