A Time For New Beginnings

Wowee!!! Thanks so much for all of your entries in our first challenge at Dream Valley! Don't forget to check back and see if you were one of the lucky winners!

So this week we begin as we mean to go on! Thats right, our first fortnightly challenge! Todays challenge is:

New Beginnings

That's right people New home, new job, new life, new baby, wedding, engagement! Interpret it as you feel free! We would love to see what you come up with!

So here is what I got busy creating...

Now I know you must be thinking... thats a little unusual for a new home card! But I wanted to create something a little different! My friend loves sheep so when i saw this little cutey over at Doodle Pantry I knew it would be perfect for the occasion!

I added some sparkle with my awesome glitter paints which you can see a little clearer in these picture...

Glittery bling is always good! Hehehe
Now you have two weeks to enter this challenge and you could win goodies from One Stop Card Crafts and Crafty Ribbons! You lucky people you :) 

Now onto the card ingredients

Stamps: Lucky Sheep by Doodle Pantry

Inks and things: Used the pre-coloured version with some added glitter paint

Papers: The lovely backing paper came with the set! Fabulous eh!

Odds and Sods: Card Candy hehe and the sentiment which I generated on the PC.

I'd like to thank the following challenges for their inspiration for this creation: 

Doodle Pantry: Use a Doodle Pantry Image
Card cupids: Anything Goes
Scrappy Frogs: good Luck
Charisma Cards: 4 legged friends :)
MelJens: Use an Animal

Have a wonderful Sunday all.
Lots of Love
