I'm here with my DT card for the first challenge of the year at 613 Avenue Create Challenge blog. The theme is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist of Something New (Baby, Home, Job, Stash).
Here is my card....... I went with a two new things, a new life together and a new die in my stash!

That's it from me today, we've had some high temps the last few days and sitting here in front of the computer is quite warm even at 10 pm at night, lol
Come and pop over to the neighbourhood and drop off an entry or two. We'd love to see your makes.
Thanks for stopping by.
Take Care,

Oh Happy Day

Hi all, well I'm really late with this post for Crafting With Friends as the owner of the blog shifted and had no internet so I am dating it with the original challenge date as that is how it is on the challenge blog. It's actually my first post as a new DT for this challenge blog so a bit of a shambles, lol but hopefully I will be forgiven for the mix-up.   You still have a few days left to join in the challenge before the new one starts.
Our sponsor is Fabrika Fantasy and here is what I made using one of the images......

Recipe: SU Real Red and various scraps of SU card to make the ground and rainbow
