Happy New Year!!! Welcome to the first blog hop of 2013! We are so excited to share the great stamp sets we are releasing this month and the months to come. 

I like the images in today's set but struggled when it came to making a card - do you ever have those days? 
Wanted to make something for either a retirement or for when someone is going off to do something different.  I was originally looking to say something like "you have all the time in the world" inside but I needed to find an MFP stamp that is current and would work so used one from the set called "Here Comes the Grad Mini".  I used Basic Grey papers that have been in my stash for ages and dies from Spellbinders.  Copics were used for colouring.
Here is the outside of my card (sorry about the photo quality)

and here is the inside
 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" OH Baby"
Here is another card I made with this set.
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Not So Ugly"

Thanks for dropping in again today - next stop is Tammylee
