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 made two cards with the stamp set for today. 
The first one is in my best shabby chic style (I am not good at shabby chic) and is for the OCC challenge as well as today's hop.  I used a sketch from Bo Bunny (21st June) that I just came across adding lace, pearls, distressing and ribbon. 

My second card uses the rose from the set coloured with Copics and a sketch from Craft's Meow Blog for January.  I used a Spellbinders die with the image and then layered it onto a doily.

 The special stamp set we have for you this month is:
" OH Baby"

The mini stamp set we have for you this month is

"Not So Ugly"

Next on the hop is TammyLee
