New Year, New Look, New Challenges!

Hi Everyone!

First, let me wish you a very Happy New Year - I hope 2014 has been good to you all so far.  So far it's been a little tough for me but we're working through it!

This week I got my order from the new Stampin' Up Occasions Catalogue and I could hardly wait to play!!!  The things in the new catalogue are absolutely gorgeous and to top it all off the new Sale-a-bration catalogue came out this week too!  Goodness, this paper crafter is completely in heaven!

For my first post of the new year, I worked on a card for some friend's who recently had a new baby girl.

Here is my card:

I will be entering this card in the following 3 challenges:

1. Colour Me...!

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with "Sketch."
  2. Create a project using some "Sponging"
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project with "Sponging using the Sketch."
