Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge # 64...New Beginnings & PBSC # 82

Morning everyone...we had a really heavy frost here last was almost a complete whiteout by the time I went to bed at 11pm!

We have a lovely new challenge for you over at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and our first theme for 2010 is NEW BEGINNINGS! I've made a new year's card but didn't really have any celebration images and then I found this Penny Black stamp in my drawer and thought I could do a Happy Moo Year card instead lol! The design papers are Basic Grey and as the theme is New Beginnings I thought I'd also use some of the new crafting goodies I had for Christmas. This card also ties in with this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is 'Happy New Year'

I've used my new Cuttlebug embossing folder....Quickutz corner die and X-Cut flower punch...the ribbon and pearl are from my craft stash and the alphabet stamps were coloured with blue and pink Promarkers before stamping!

The design team girls have created some really gorgeous projects for this theme...I hope you'll pop over and see their work and maybe join in the fun with us this week! Don't forget that your entry will be included in the draw at the end of this month for a chance to win a prize which will be either something from the Secret Crafter shop or a £20 voucher! We also have a new DT member joining us...her name is Christine and you can see all her wonderful creations here!

Hope you all have a super Saturday!

Happy New Year Donna! Oh how I love this card - so unexpected but so COOL! How do you come up with these fantastic ideas! I love the letters placed that way and the flowers - you always have the cutest flowers! The papers are so sweet and the embossing folder - I should probably get that one! It's too cute. With all that frost, I hope you and your family are keeping bundled up! Have a super fine day! ;D
