AMAZING NEWS and a new Challenge at Shelly's Images

Hello my friends!!
I hope your new year is off to a FABULOUS start!!!

Before I tell you about the new challenge, have you seen the AMAZING NEWS posted at the Shelly's Images Blog?  NO?  Well here's a hint . . .

We have some very exciting news for our Shelly's Images friends for 2014.

Beginning January 1st (and earlier as we start to do work at the store) all of Shelly's Images Digi Stamps will be available FREE!!!

You heard right.  Every image at our store will be available free of charge to every registered user.  And registering is super easy!

NOW, for the 1st challenge of the new year over at Shelly's Images, our theme is ...

OUT with the OLD and IN with the NEW

Remember, our challenge is now on a MONTHLY basis so you'll have all month to come share your creations with us and I look forward to being inspired by you all!  I can certainly use some inspiration ... uuugh!  Kind of struggling at getting the 'ole engine going!  So please ... come join in the fun and help me out!!  LOL!

Today I've chosen a fun 'wintery' set from Shelly's Images to play with ... it's called Snow Lady Set.  There are several pieces to this set AND there's also a set called Snow Man Set which is also a lot of fun to create with!

The NEW item I've used on my creation is something I purchased for myself with some of my Christmas $$$  and that is the Cottage Cutz 'Winterland Village' die.  I just love the Snowy, Wintery feel of this die and I thought the Snow Lady worked perfectly with it.

A few additional challenges:
Emergency Crafters January Challenge - COLD (Blue or a Snowflake)
Artistic Inspirations #72 - Anything Goes
