Hi Stampers and welcome to a new month and a new challenge at Create with Connie & Mary! When we receive our challenges a month at a time, I usually use my snipping tool (love that thing) and snip all of the file photo's on one page. For some reason, when I did my usual snipping, this card in the thumbnail view came out as a horizontal card not vertical and it was way too late for me to do-over. Keep reading and you'll see what I mean.

Here's the challenge this week:

And my card. See how I did not get the very bottom of the image above? Oh well, you still get the idea...

 Do you spot some new products on my card? We were able to purchase new products while at convention. Stampin' Up! had a mini store set up right at our venue. I can't show you pictures of the products just yet but here they are listed for you:
  • Bright & Beautiful Stamp Set (coordinates with our Stars Framelits Dies)
  • All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishments (I colored mine with my Blendabilities Markers)
  • Under the Tree Designer Paper
Be sure to go say Hi to the girls on our design team and look for announcements soon on our new subscription coming your way!
