Ring in the New Year

Afternoon Folks.
I promised you an exciting post yesterday.  Well, this is it.  I am now on the Design Team for The Corrosive Challenge Blog and today is our first challenge for 2012.
Our challenge this fortnight is entitled 'Ring In The New Year' by celebrating and using any new crafting goodies that you have.
We want to see something new on your project.  This could be your image, a die, an embellishment.  In fact, anything that you have not used before.
Our sponsor this month is Kenny K downloads.

KennyK has kindly offered a prize of 5 digis to our January winner.  So what are you waiting for?

For my card I have used a KennyK image entitled Sundae.  I decided to go with the typical red, black and white theme for Valentine's.  The image was coloured with promarkers and die cut using my Big Shot.  I also added some glossy accents to the red hearts.  I used some papers that I have had for ages from Papermania, and matted this onto red coredinations.  For embellishments I added ribbon, lace, paper flowers made from the red cardstock, a heart charm, buttons and a string of clear hearts.
The new items used are the image, ribbon, lace, charm and clear hearts.

I hope that some of you will pop over to Corrosive Challenges and have a go.  Also, check out the fantastic projects completed by the very talented members of the design team.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Just Tracey's Crafts - Love Is In The Air
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop #6  Be My Valentine
I love promarkers - #98  Buttons and Lace
One Stop Craft Challenge - Bingo Board (3 down   Flowers/ Buttons/Charms

Thanks for looking  and hope you pop by again soon.

Our challenge for this fortnight is one to celebrate the new year, and an excuse to use all those new crafty goodies you received for the holidays!

Challenge #140 is "Ring in the New Year" and we want to see something brand new on your creation. It could be an image, a die, an embellishment or all of the above. As long it is new and never before used, it counts for this challenge. Please tell us in your post what those new items are so we can be jealous of the fabulous loot you scored! lol
