New Year and a New Team! - A Spoon Full of Sugar!

As I mentioned in a post the other day I sure will be busy this year on this blog but I couldn't be happier! I was very flattered to be asked to join the team at A Spoon Full Of Sugar as I've played their challenges for a long while now and each one is so much fun! The team over there are so talented that when they asked me become a part of the team I just couldn't say no :)

This is my first card for them and the theme of the challenge is Happy New Year or Thank You. I decided to go with Thank You (and the message goes out to all at A Spoon Full Of Sugar for starting my year off with a bang!)

Creative Cottage - Something New
Dutch Dare - New Beginnings
Simon Says Stamp - New Beginnings
AI Factory - New Beginnings
Ellephantastic - New Beginnings
Cupcake Crafts - Something New
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Something New and Ribbon (new team and new stamp!)
Fab N Funky - Anything Goes
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters - Anything Goes
Totally Papercrafts - Thank You
Auds Sentiments - Two Word Sentiment
Wild Orchid - Sketch
Little Red Wagon - Use a Doily
2 Sisters - Getting Girly
Catch The Bug - Embossing
Speedy The Cats Friends - Embossing
Secret Crafter - Tons of Texture
Fuzzy Wuzzy - Anything Goes (with an Animal image)
Crafty Emma's - All Creatures Great and Small

Card Recipe:
Image - Wooly Bears Isobel by Kanban Crafts (I bought mine at Hobby Craft on my recent visit home to England)
Paper - Basic Grey Green At Heart
Medium - Copic Markers
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Studio G
Pearls - Queen and Co
Ribbon - American Crafts
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Flower Patch
Embossing Folder - Basic Grey for Sizzix
Doily - Little Yellow Bicycle

The stamp comes with the bear in two positions and the clothes separate so I had to mask twice to make her "clothed"! I really like this stamp set and can see myself using it a lot this year.
Anyway I hope you liked it and will support me on my journey in 2011 and if you still have Thank You's left to send from Christmas please use our challenge at A Spoon Full Of Sugar as a reason to get them done! LOL
