Good morning all to you 
hope you all had a good time last night or if still coming up to midnight hope you are having fun 
I am with family and celebrating in Cardiff 

just popped in to let you know about a new challenge at 


Each day is an opportunity to receive God's mercies, which are new every morning(Lamentations 3:22-23), and surely each year we welcome, each January first is a blessing, indeed!

Do you participate in the tradition of making New Year's Resolutions?  What do you want to change about the way you live?  Many people who make resolutions want to stop doing something, or start doing something.  Do you have any resolutions about papercrafting?  Maybe you want to finish a layout each week in 2014, work on Christmas cards each month, or try to use what you already have in your stash!  We hope our monthly theme, layout, and card challenges will help you meet your goals!

Let's celebrate the beginning of 2014 with some challenges for inspiration and motivation!

The Main Theme Challenge for January 1 is, "Friends Forever." 
Friends are truly a gift from God, and they come into our lives in many ways!  That means there are lots of ways to interpret our theme, and we can't wait to see  what you create!

January 2014 Layout Sketch and  Card Sketch:
Theme:  Friends Forever
Bible Verse Inspiration:  Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times..."
Guest Designer:  Lisa Hoel
Prizes: Nolene, Christy, Cara


To make this project I used a friends stamped sentiment set
I made some tags some note lets and some witting paper
I made a folder to put them all in
I used some punches twine gold card pink and mauve paper and some white card

here is some more photos

I would like to enter this project into some challenges

thanks for looking happy crafting to all
