Something New

Hiya, time for something new at the Sweet Stampin' Challenge. It could be a new baby, new stash or whatever new you would like to share as long as there's rubber or digi stamping. We're kindly being sponsored by Wild Orchid Crafts this week.

Crafty Calender: What's New?
Sparkles Christmas Challenges: Christmas Critter with Sparkle

I made good use of a win from Bugaboo stamps, some new red Pro Markers, a new Wink of Stella pen and a Nestie Label. Santa spoilt me a bit! The papers are DQWV.

Thank you so much for visiting, I've been down with the flu and will catch up with blog visits whilst drinking lots of tea. Oldest son ordered a sampler package with tea from China to me for Christmas so everything is good!

Love and hugs
