This week at For Fun Challenges we are bringing in the New Year by celebrating it with a “Something New” Challenge. Create a project that would be for something new (new house, new baby, new life together, etc.) This challenge will run for TWO WEEKS (you have till Jan 10th)  so there is plenty of time to create. The challenge is sponsored by Bugaboo Digi Stamps and the winner of a random drawing will win 7 images from Bugaboo!! It was so easy to create with this cute elephant stamp by Bugaboo Digital Stamps.  I spent half of Monday cleaning up my scrap room as it looked horrible from all the Christmas cards and projects. Totally forgot about doing my card for this challenge. Thank goodness I remembered late Monday night and was able to get it turned in on time! That was a close one. I decided to paper piece the stamp by printing it out on each color then cutting out the pieces I needed from that colored paper. Now to find time to make a girl one!

Thanks for looking and hope you will be able to play along with us.
