Good Morning crafty friends!  I hope you've had a super festive season, and that you feel revitalised and ready for a new year.  Let's hope it's better than the last one!

Our lovely Lisa has chosen your first theme for the year.  She'd like to see your JANUARY BLUES (shades of blue)

Up for grabs this week is a £15 store voucher from

I've used an old image from DigiStamp Boutique, called Snoozing Chap With Beer.  I've coloured the image with Copics, using the following colours:

Skin: E04; E11; E21; E00; E000; R20
 Hair: E49; E47; E44; E43

Couch: E44; E43; E42; E41
Couch Feet: E47; E44; E43
Shirt: N8; N6; N4; N2
Jeans: B99; B97; B95; B93; B91
Socks: C2; C1; C0; C00
Skippers: N8; N6; N4; N2; BG05; BG02; BG01; BG000
Newspaper & Beer Foam: W2; W1; W0; W00
Beer: YR27; YR24; YR23; YR21
Wall & Floor: E43; E42; E41; E40

I have die cut a frame for the image, using a Spellbinders die set.

My papers are from the Maja Design Denim & Friends paper pack.  The kraft border and frame for the image are made with paper from the insert for wrapping paper.  

The Happy Birthday sentiment is a Find IT Trading die cut.  I've also added three little Carta Bella enamel dots.

Well, it's wonderful to be back at the craft desk.  Hope you have fun creating this week.  Be sure to pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created to inspire you this week.
