New Year, New Challenges

I thought I would try a few new (to me) challenges this year. I am busy playing with a few new (to me) stamps, making thank you cards for my kids to send out and taking a little break to photograph those that are ready before the skies darken as we have another wave of stormy weather coming our way.

I want to quickly share this one.

I stamped the tags & sentiments with my new Paper Smooches Qwick Qwips stamp set, mounted them on a Spellbinders die cut base and tied them with a little Baker's Twine.

My color palette came from the Colour Q Challenge #170 to use one of the Royal Court favorite's from the last year. I picked LeAnne's:

I am playing along with the CASology Challenge 25 - do using new stamps and making cards to say "thank you" for new toys count?

The CAS-ual Friday Challenge #84 is Thank You.

CFC84: Create a Clean And Simple Thank You card

And finally, I am in love with my new Paper Smooches stamps and am linking this card to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Anything Goes.
