New Challenge at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Well it sure has been an interesting week for me.  As some of you know I left my job after 31 years in June. I decided that I would take a little break and then look for another job.  Well. a couple of weeks ago I saw a job advertised that sounded interesting.  I applied not really thinking anything would come of it.  I went for an interview last week which was very nerve wracking after 31 years of not having to do one.  Anyway, I got offered the job today.  Well, you could have knocked me down with a feather.  The first job I applied for and I got it.  I will be working as a customer service advisor for a local publishing company.  Totally different to my last job but I am looking forward to the challenge.  I start next week so going to enjoy my last few days as a lady of leisure lol.

Anyway, let's move onto crafty matters.  Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Children and/or Christmas

We have three great sponsors for this challenge:
Sparkle and Sprinkle - a prize of 3 digi sets from SNS Exclusive Stamps
Crafty Sentiments - a prize of 3 digi images
Dis Digi Stamps - a prize of $12 gift certificate

Here is my inspiration project using a fun image and sentiment from Sparkle and Sprinkle.

I used the pre coloured version of the image but you do get the uncoloured version too. The sentiment also came as part of the set.  I added some faux stitching to the image panel and matted onto silver mirror card.  The papers were some freebies from a magazine together with the flower.  I belived they may be Craftwork Cards but don't quote me on that.  I added some card candi and gems to finish the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the lovely creations from my talented teamies.
