Challenges will be each Friday but we are two teams, Cuddly and Buddly!, and so you'll see a card from me every other week.
You need to use a Cuddly Buddly digital project to enter but there are tons of FREEBIES so there is no reason not to play :)
We will have winners each week, all the details are on the Cuddly Buddly blog
Now to this very 1st challenge, I had the honor of choosing the theme and in the spirit of the new challenge and team members I've chosen the theme of "A Brand New ...". You can make a card for a new baby, new home, new start (graduation), wedding or maybe just using brand new products or a technique that is brand new to you!
Plenty of ideas for this one and we really want to see you play along.

I'm the first to admit that I shied away from digital papers for a long while as we in US have such an easily available selection of tangible papers that I didn't feel the need.
But many of my favorite digital stamp companies have matching papers that I was slowly but surely pulled in :)
It is so nice to be able to print just as much as you need, make the image on the paper smaller or larger to suit your needs and even change colors if you need to!
I used papers from two different sets on this card and I really love the results.
This was such a easy card to pull together as the image is so sweet that it didn't need much to finish it off.
I hope you like it and go grab a freebie if you like and come along and play with us at Cuddly Buddly!
