Shiny & New ~

New Year, new stamps, new anything!  Did you get something on your wishlist for Christmas, or just buy yourself something new like me?  I wanna see, so I can ooh and ahh!  Just let me know in your blog post what's new, ok?

Thanks so much for your input about the decision of going bi-weekly vs. monthly.  There was pretty much a split decision, so why not do both, right?

So here's what we'll do; bi-weekly except for April, July, November and December, which are sometimes the months that can be a bit more busy for some.  The full month challenges will for sure have a prize, but I may be feeling generous along the way and surprise you on the bi-weekly challenges every now and then too.....like this one because it's my BIRTHDAY...woot! woot!

By entering your Shiny & New creations in this challenge, you could see yourself winning a $10 AMAZON GIFT CARD and crowned as the next Princess Dragonfly!! 

I hope my Shiny & New examples here will inspire you to join.  As a side note to some of your nice comments; there is no "design team", it's just me :)


New Stamp Sets: Unity Stamps/Midnight Resolutions (background) and Hugs, Kisses & Birthday Wishes Sentiment Kit (main image).
Inside Message:  A toast to you and yours this New Year


New Digital:  Mo's Digital Pencil/Peace Love Hope



New double-sided plaid/houndstooth paper.
Digital Stamp Set: Hambo Stamps/Party Sheep
Inside Message:  Ewe are Special


New Stamp Set: Unity Stamps/Let's Get Slushed!
Inside Message:  Winter Cheer for a Happy New Year

This challenge is a short one, since we're getting back into the bi-weekly swing of things, so remember that this challenge will end on the 12th and the winner will be announced on Sunday, January 13th.

Thank You and I look forward to another year of creating with you :)

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
