January 30 Day Monthly Challenge

We are continuing with our 30 day challenges. It is working so well, the deadline seems to encourage the completion of the task.

This month Keri did a Sympathy card....
She used a new embossing folder, sympathy stamp and a couple of dies that had never seen the light of day.

I chose to do a Dog card (imagine that!) and used 4 products that I had never used before....
I used a stitched fishtail banner, an MFT stitched sentiment banner, YNS Sentiment and a pawprint embossing folder that I scoured the Internet for and finally had to pay an exorbitant amount to have it shipped from the States. Its was a little disappointing as it is a square size and won't emboss an entire card panel, even an A2 but it works really well in a small space and it IS absolutely darling! I'm still glad that I got it.

We are continuing to use items from our own stash instead of borrowing as it seems that we have each picked up a number of new items lately that need some attention. I'm looking forward to continuing this challenge over the coming year.
