A Fresh New Challenge!

Happy New Year! I hope that you and yours will have a happy, healthy 2013!

A fresh new year brings a fresh new challenge for the Dreamweaver Stencils design team. Our January challenge is "A Fresh Start", the perfect theme for the new year. We hope that you will consider playing along with our challenges this year, it's a great way to  "freshen up" you skills with your Dreamweaver products! Just link your creation over at the DREAM it UP! blog or email a picture to you could win some great prizes!

This week I am posting a card that features the beautiful new RuffledHeart (LG747) stencil that I will be showcasing in my January classes. While it makes for a wonderful, beautiful Valentine card just in time for that holiday that's right around the corner, today I am using it as a way to wish a wonderful, beautiful friend of mine a VERY Happy Birthday!  So Happy Birthday to Lynell, our fabulously talented leader who is always a source of inspiration to me! This one's for you

LG747 - Glossy red embossing paste and glitter

The colors and floral pattern remind me that the days are definitely getting longer and spring will be here before we know it (OK maybe I'm being a little too optimistic for northern IL, but we can always dream). This card will be part of my class at Memories and Beyond on Thursday, January 17th along with two more cards featuring this great new stencil.  Check out my January schedule in the Class Schedule section on the right side of my blog.

Don't miss the rest of the teams' ideas too. Just click on their names below.

Happy Creating,
