Something New at A Gem of a Challenge

Good morning my lovely crafty friends.
Hope all are well and those not I wish a speedy recovery.
I also hope those living near the UK Coastal areas are safe, warm and most importantly dry.

I have 2 DT makes to share with you today and my first one is for the new challenge over at 

We have now changed to a fortnightly challenge which means you have more time to play along.

So for the next 2 weeks the theme picked by the lovely Sue is

Something New

For example, new baby, job, home or you can use some new stash

The prize for the winner is 2 Individual Digi images
of the winners choice from PINKGEM DESIGNS.....

I made another New Year Calendar:

Here's what I used:
Image: Pink Gem Designs 'Fairy Chloe'
Design Papers: LOTV 'Nitwits Always & Forever' - a Christmas pressie from my DH
Colouring Medium: Copics
Pearl Strings from The Hobby House
Sentiment: PC Generated
Ribbons from stash
Spellbinders: Labels 18 - another Christmas pressie from my DH
Decorative Floral Ovals
Star Dust Stickles

Please pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my lovely DT buddies and to welcome our new teamie - Pauline
