Sweet Stampin' - bringing in the new

Hello!  Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas :o)  Apart from having the family round for Christmas dinner, ours has been pretty lazy really... I've done lots of knitting in front of the tv lol... ooh, and my mum got me a set of crochet hooks for Christmas, so I really do have to learn now!

Our challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'anything new'... so new baby, house, job, or just new crafty stash is fine too.

Any tips for taking photos of white cards?  The light is obviously not great for photos at the moment, so I tend to get the light box out, which really doesn't seem to work so well for white cards... I tried two different backgrounds to see which one would work best...

And I'm still not sure, so thought I'd add them both!

I used a giraffe die from Crafter's Companion, adding Spun Sugar distress ink while it was still in the die.  The other dies are all from the MFT die-namics Blueprints 3 set, cut from Papermill white linen card and lightly inked with Spun Sugar.  The sentiment stamp is from Simon Says Stamp, stamped in Memento Espresso Truffle ink, and I added a little Doodlebug enamel dot to finish.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
CRAFT - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes
Simon Says - anything goes

I probably won't be back for a few days, so Happy New Year to you all... hope it's a good one :o)
