New Beginnings at Sassy Cheryl's...

Happy New Year!! How cool...a brand new year...with a whole 365 days of crafting fabulousness!! Whoohoo!! So...let's get this party started, shall we? Let's talk about this week's fun challenge at Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog!

Our very sweet and talented DT sistah, Sassy Ann, is our "hostess with the mostess" this week...and Miz Ann has chosen the theme...

New Beginnings!!

How perfect for our first challenge of 2012, don'tcha think?! And here's what I came up with...

I used Sassy Cheryl's "Let's Party..Sassy Sally" available HERE at Sassy Cheryl's Digis!! I gotta tell ya, I am in love with li'l miss Sassy Sally...and am looking forward to lots of new Sassy Sally images to play with in 2012! (Hint hint, Miz Sassy Cheryl! hehehe!)

Here's my card "recipe"...
Cardstock & sentiment ink:  Cranberry Crisp by Stampin' Up
DPs: "Christmas Magic" by Fancy Pants Designs
Seam binding: Ribbon Girl
Sentiment, champagne bottle (inside), & gold beads: my stash
Dies: Nestabilities
Copics & Prismacolor pencils

And a peek at the inside....which I kept very simple this time...

And, of course, the ever-popular "artsy" view...

Okey dokey, my darlins...it's time for you to pop on over to Sassy Cheryl's Challenge Blog to see what my talented DT sistahs have created for this first fun challenge of 2012!! Then, please join us for this week's challenge, won't you? Just remember to follow this week's "New Beginnings" theme. Oh, and...don't forget to link your finished project to this week's challenge...because one lucky participant (selected at random) will win a $5.00 digi credit to spend at Sassy Cheryl's Digis Online Store HERE!!
