Happy New Year!

Wow - what a fast year 2013 was!
Thank you to everyone who played along with our challenges and shared their crafty journey with us. We have loved every visit to all of your blogs - you are all so talented and very inspirational!
You will have seen new dt members over the past month, what a talented design team I have. If you missed their posts over the festive season, just have a look through some of the older posts.

So, welcome to 2014!!!

Our first challenge of the year sees us being sponsored by

The Stamping Boutique, read on for more about them!

Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor. 
We at TSB are very proud to offer original digital images and artwork to you. 
Thank you for giving us a few minutes of your valuable time to look over the store

Good luck in the challenge and we hope to see you over at our TSB Community network.
Thanks so much!

So many wonderful images in their shop to play with......
Our challenge for this month is "Anything Goes" - so get creative and show us what you can do! If you are new to us or unsure of our challenge rules you will find them over in the right hand side bar. Make sure you give them a read before you enter.

The prize on offer from The Stamping Boutique is 3 images of your choice from their shop!!!! (If you already have any of their images and you use one of them for this challenge, your prize would be 4 images if you won. To be eligible for this you must use one of TSB images and you must put TSB after your name in the link section).

I used the umbrella whimsy 2 digi stamp for my inspiration cards.
This is the card I made.....

Pop back over the next month to see what all the DT have been up to.
Here's to a craft filled, happy and healthy 2014.
Happy crafting
