Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! It is hard to believe that it is 2010. I hope it brings everyone lots of better times than the previous year. Of course it is starting off with a snowstorm here in the North East. When we went to bed it was starting to spit snow and now it is snowing like mad and is expected to do it off and on all day, tonight and tomorrow. I guess that it means that I am staying in and making cards, hehe. Good time to pull out all my Christmas crafting gifts and try them out.

This cutie is a digi stamp from The Greeting Farm and they were nice enough to give it to us for free (thanks Kristen for letting us know about it). It made a great New Years Day Card that I am giving to a friend that I didn't see over the holidays.

This card also fits quite a few challenges going on right now, so here they are

Crazy For Challenges, C4C18- Create a card using Polka Dots, I love polka dots so the hardest part was what color polka dot DP to use!
3 Clovers Thursday Challenge #45- Celebrations is the theme this week and I love New Years so it was a fun card for me to create!
Carisma Cardz Challenge Celebrations-It is their 1ST birthday and they are celebrating with lots of fun including a great challenge to make a card of a celebration, I did a New Years Celebration, a blog hop and great presents to win! Check them out!!!!!
Frosted Designs A New Years Challenge-I love New Years Day so making a card to celebrate a great new year ahead was lots of fun.
Copic Creations Challenge #19 - This was fun to do because I love to color animals and this image was a challenge with all the stamped fur around the image.
Daring Cardmakers-The challenge this week is new beginnings, so my card was a perfect fit for the challenge!
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 82-They have a wonderful sketch this challenge and I loved using for this card. It gave me the opportunity for lots of different kinds of papers on the card!

Pile It On Challenge 29-This challenge was to use anything digital plus do their challenge and at least one other challenge. That was easy this week lots of great challenges out there and I love digi stamps so it wasn't hard to use one of those on the card.
