Pile It On - Happy New Year!

Happy Sunday!
It's time to get back to business with the 1st challenge of 2010 for Pile It On and the theme is Happy New Year! Of course you must combine it with other challenges or else you won't be "Piling It On!"

I found a few to help me this week and the 1st is a brand new challenge blog.
Fussy and Fancy had the theme of "New"
Stampin For The Weekend had a New Beginnings theme
PaperTake Weekly also had a "New Beginnings" theme
Cute Card Thursday had an "All New" theme
Sassy Susie had a theme of Friends Old and New
Crafty Ann had a New Year theme too
365 Cards Day 312 had a "Metal Mania" theme
Ildi Co had a Scraps and Metal theme
Paper Play had a Precious Metals theme
Just Magnolia had a monthly challenge of Paper Pleating (and a Magnolia stamp)
Magnolia Down Under wanted a "Stamp with another use" and I used a Summer stamp on a New Years Card
Crafty Card Makers wanted your favorites of 2009 and I have to say that discovering Magnolia stamps was a breakthrough in my cardmaking and is definitely a favorite of mine.
Frosted Designs had an Ink challenge and I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp Tilda
Flutterby wanted to see "New" along with a Fairy, Butterfly or Angel and this Tilda certainly has her Angel Wings showing
Easy Breezy Kewl had a color combo of Soft Suede, Ballet Blue, Whisper White, Kraft and Bravo Burgundy
Pals Paper Arts had a great sketch

This is a Tilda from a previous years release but she's new to me and the first time I'm used her. She's called Tilda With Watering Can and I colored her with Copic's.
The dp is K@Co and the metal phrase is Making Memories.
