A New Year and a New Challenge

Happy 2010 everyone!!!! I was up late last night, or was it early this morning, stamping my little heart out and having fun doing so!!!!! What a great way to bring in the New Year but with a New Clearly Inspired Challenge over at Clear Dollar Stamps. All the new January releases are waiting for you so hurry up and pick some up! This challenge (check out Lori's blog for all the details...a prize is involved though!!!) was to use BRADS. Now I love using brads so this was a cinch for me!!! I used the adorable set Cute Critters. Mr. Turtle is embossed onto watercolor paper then watercolored using Tombow markers. I am such an earth elements stamper that I had to stay with it! I used, of all things, DSP and the glazed brads by Basic Grey called Eerie. Colors of cardstock include Chocolate chip, More mustard, and Kiwi kiss. This card measures 5" square. I embossed one side of it thru my cuttlebug, liking that effect.

So how many of you have all your Christmas decorations down already? We're keeping ours up till Sunday - they went up so late that I wanted just a few more days to enjoy.
