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. 


 
 
My cards today show what a great set this is for those of you who love to colour. 

The first card is for someone starting a new job this week. It uses a sketch from the Sketchy Challenge from end October.


 
 
My second card is a simple one and will be mailed off as one of my Christmas Thank You cards.  I used my new Spellbinders Ribbon Threader die, Ivy and Blossoms released last month and the Thank You sentiment from Welcome Poppies.  


 
My last card uses another sketch from Crafts Meow (September sketch) and I have combined it with a challenge from Just Us Girls to use embossing with ink.  I used two different embossing folders with Distress Inks and some Inka Gold.
 


 


Thank you for checking these out.  Your next hop stop is Tammylee

 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"
