Happy New Year and welcome to my last blog post of 2013.  

This time last year I was pretty much making my first cards and writing my first blog posts 
(I didn't even know what a "blog" was), 
what a year of learning this has been for me.

Thanks to those of you who follow and/or just check out my blog on a regular basis.
Bless You!!!

This week at FOSTV (Challenge #105) you are being challenged to use 
chalk and paper piercing
 on a
 New Year's card.

I've used the Calendar 2013 stamp set for my DT inspiration card today.  
What a versatile set this is,
 I can see myself using this often for my journals and card making.

 I'm still a little under the weather
 and catching up from the holidays,
 I'm not going to post my usual 
instructions and materials list.

 If you have any questions on any of the post, 
 send me a message or leave a comment and
 I'll be happy to help.

Wishing you a safe and blessed New Year!

My DT  Inspiration card for the
 Christmas Card Challenge
 this week at 
 (Friends of Speedy TV), 
a Mark's Finest Papers (a Heinrich Company)

I used the Joyous Season 2013 Stamp Set "Merry Christmas" sentiment which you can purchase here

Check out all of the rest of the DT inspiration for you this week and join in the challenge!

I created this gorgeous journal using the Christmas Gift Journal papers from Tsunami Rose Designs.

 I simply printed out the entire file, started trimming and assembling, adding embellishments from my stash to decorate it.
 I stayed quite traditional on most of the pages, but a few of them just cried out for a more modern look.

 I hope you will take a few minutes to look through the pages of this stunning collection of papers.

 You can follow this link to Tsunami Rose's shops and have the papers in your hands to start crafting right away!

Since this is such a lengthy pictorial, I have not included directions or the lengthy list of supplies used. 

 If you are curious about a product or technique, please message me and I will be happy to help.
