A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 29 - Happy New Year!

For our challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar we would like you to create a New Years card. Always handy to have when you receive that unexpected Christmas card!

We would like to welcome our new sponsors Colette and Katie from Nutcrafters. They have given us a fantastic prize this week which includes: High Hopes - Sunday's Best, High Hopes - Daniel, Prima Center Kisses (Jade) & Prima Sandi's Favourites - Jealoussea (Green).

For my card today I have used High Hopes stamp Father Time and Happy New Year sentiment. Isn't this little baby just the cutest! Papers used are by Basic Grey. My image is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps for blending. Sorry this is such a short post so if you need more details please ask away!

We would like to thank you all for joining in our challenges in 2008 and helping making our challenge blog such a huge success!!

Thank you also to our wonderful sponsors for your continued support and for the wonderful prizes you have donated!!

Our last thank you is to our wonderful team who produce the most gorgeous and inspiring cards week after week. Thank you girls ... we love you all!

This will be our last challenge now before Christmas and we will be returning on 6th January.

Have a great week!
Hugs,
