New Beginnings at Allsorts

 Good morning peeps. Well where did the last fortnight disappear to so quickly???
Come to think of it - it only seems like yesterday we were getting ready to celebrate 2011 and now here we are on another New Years' Eve - could it be because I'm getting older that time seems to be disappearing quicker than ever?????

Anyways it is Saturday so that means it's time for a new challenge over at


and our very lovely Emma has picked the theme


I decided to use a  
NEW STAMP and create a NEW CALENDAR for the NEW YEAR :o)

I'm loving these images from Sugar Nellie - coloured with PM's and Flexmarkers.
I thought the image would be good for a calendar as on the 1st of each month a new wish could be granted!!
The gorgeous Design Papers (K&Co Poppy Seeds) are also new - a Christmas pressie from Aaron & Kerry :o) - I love this colour combo - could be a new favourite lol!!!

Our sponsor this week is the lovely Sally-Ann from DigiStamp Boutique

and 1 lucky winner picked at random will win 6 images of their choice - and with so many fabulous images available you really will be spoilt for choice :o)
Please pop over to the main challenge blog and check out the rest of the DT's gorgeous inspiration - you won't be disappointed :o)

Challenges I would like to enter:

4 Crafty Chicks - Something New
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
C.R.A.F.T - New Year
Hanna and Friends - New Year
Crafting for All Seasons - Fairies
I Love Promarkers - Anything Goes
My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Everybody Art - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Sketch

Got a busy day ahead today - we are having a scrummy roast beef dinner (at lunchtime) and then babysitting Oliver this evening so Aaron & Kerry can have an evening out :o)
Hope you all have a safe and wonderful HAPPY NEW YEAR
See you tomorrow with a new project as Guest Designer for another fabulous challenge blog :o)

Lots of love.
