EXCITING NEWS and a BLOG HOP

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL!

I've been sitting on this exciting news for awhile now and I'm thrilled to be able to share it with you today!  There's a NEW Challenge Blog beginning today called Do-Al(l) Creatives and I have been invited to be on their design team!  What fun!  This will be a MONTHLY themed challenge with sponsorship prizes offered.  I do hope you'll come check it out and join in the fun! 


We are kicking off the fun with an introduction Blog Hop 
along with out 1st challenge theme.
If you've come from Christine's blog you are on the right path ... if you get lost along the way, you can always go back to the beginning at the Do-Al(l) Creatives blog.  
Here is the DT Hop Listing:

 And, as our guest designers for the month of January, we welcome
Manja (black colored)
and
Imelda (3 Scrappy Sisters)



Our first challenge theme is EVERYTHING GOES WITH SOMETHING NEW!
(i.e. New Home, New Baby, New Car, New Job ... etc.)


I decided to go with a 'New Home' creation.
I've create the background by sponging the top half of my white card stock panel with blue Tim Holtz 'Broken China' distress ink (sky) and the bottom half with Memento 'Bamboo Shoots' (grass).  Then added in a forest of pines using the Memory Box 'Snowy Pine Landscape #F1900 stamp.


You can't have a new home in the country without a dog & a picket fence!  LOL
And, I love how the door opens on this Memory Box die ... saying "Come on in and Welcome to our new home!"

Again, I'm excited about this new adventure and I hope you'll come check it out and join in the blog hop /challenge fun!
Your next stop on the hop is DORIS
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
