Happy New Year! First Blogger's challenge of 2010!

Time to celebrate. That is the theme for this first challenge of the New Year! I combined the theme challenge with the Latenightstamper's weekly challenge of using brads and the sketch challenge on SUDSOL. So three in one. I am really loving these new paper pack we can purchase from Stampin Up (starting January 5th) Lots of fun designs and colors.


Come on and celebrate the New Year and all that it entails with us on the Blogger's challenge team. Visit the other team member blogs by clicking on the logo on my side bar.

May 2010 be your most blessed year ever. May it bring you all that you desire and more.

Here's my card.
