Happy Monday..

Hope everyone had a great weekend... the first week of 2012 has come and gone! I'm so glad you can join me today to welcome back Lollipop Crafts from our winter break! We're ready for a new and exciting year, and our first challenge of the year is the ANYTHING GOES with a NEW twist! Just use a new stamp, technique, supply, etc, or create a card/project for New Baby, or New House, or Happy New Year! etc... Be sure to check out the LC blog for all the details and some gorgeous projects from both teams!
Here's my card to share with you...

The "NEW" features are paper from Jillibean Soup, and a new clear sentiments stamps set I got from my friend, Leanne, who happens to also be on the LC team! Picked a few of the sentiments and stamped it randomly on the yellow cardstock for the background. I also tried a "new" skin color combo... my friend, Amy, has a bunch of GREAT tutorials on this blog... where I visit very often!! Followed the Friday Spy Day #14 challenge on FFC... cased the layout of the featured card. Cheeky Chat is colored in copics... isn't she just the cutest... with her pink phone!!
For another "new" thing for my blog this year, I'm going to list out all the supplies I used for the posted project, including a list copic colors! so here goes for the first post of the year...

Stamp - Cheeky Chat (TGF), clear sentiments (from Leanne)
Paper - Kraft (Recollections from Michael's), Jillibean Soup (Homemade 6 Bean Soup), cardstock (DCWV)
