{New Beginnings} at Twisted Tuesday!

Merry Christmas Eve to all my wonderful crafty friends out in blog land.....today is the day....all last minute finishing touches need to be done for the big day tomorrow! I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season with family and friends (and you also get to sneak in a wee bit of craft therapy) *giggle*

Our challenge for the next two weeks over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is "New Beginnings" so the challenge is set out like this:

  • Show us something crafty that is new to you - either received or bought
  • the twist: make the theme of your creation something new or the beginning of something (new house, new baby, marriage, beginning of a race, etc.) 
Our sponsor for the month of December is:


on Facebook
They are giving one lucky winner an $8 gift certificate to their store (shipping and handling excluded)!

For my card, I decided I wanted to showcase a NEW YEAR....so I dug out my new set from Paper Smooches called "Free Spirits" and I got to work :)

I added some colored gems and popped up the main "drinks" panel for an easy, CAS project! I don't know about you, but I am very much looking forward to another year - I have a lot of new goals and dreams that I would like to go after...in many different aspects of my life!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting From the Heart - Anything Goes
Stamp and Create - Anything Goes
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes
CAS on Sunday - Happy New Year

I hope you get some time this holiday to sit and get crafty with us - remember, you have 2 weeks :) From all of us at Twisted Tuesday Challenges, we wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and all the best in 2014! CHEERS!
