"New Beginnings"...

So glad you could stop by today!

I want to share some exciting news with you...and it fits into the theme of this post perfectly which is "New Beginnings"...

I have a new beginning with a new design team...are you ready?  I'm one of the newest Belles at the UnstampaBelles!  This challenge blog is so unique...the twist is that you cannot stamp on your card in any form...a stretch for sure.  (A small, computer generated sentiment is allowed).  I'm sure I will be challenged and have to think outside the box as these challenges are really designed to get you to use your imagination in a new way and to encourage you to stretch and grow in your crafting talents!

So, our current challenge at The Unstampabelles is "New Beginnings".  We are offering a wonderful prize package to one lucky winner!   Our sponsor this week is Craft Mad!
The prize includes paper tole sheets, foam pads, paper twist, feathers, 2 x packs of stitching card fronts and envelopes, 3d Sticker sets - weddings and babies.  Many of these things are new items to use i.e feather are very trendy at the moment!
Many thanks to Mandy!
Here's a peek...

  I must admit that I've had Valentine's Day on the brain lately, and got to thinking about "new love".  Remember that first Valentine's Day you spent with your "new love"?  You wanted everything to be perfect!  I knew that I had several new toys in my stash that I wanted to play with and they would fit the Valentine theme perfectly.  I was able to use a new print and cut file (the teddy cupid) for my Silhouette Cameo, as well as two new Memory Box dies...the hanging hearts as well as the "love" script.

I've kept the card quite simple...hopefully you'll like it!

Here it is...

I just love that cute little teddy cupid...and I'm sure he will be delivered to someone special.  That envelope looks like it's just packed full of love.

I hope I've encouraged you to play along with our current challenge at The UnstampaBelles.  Challenge yourself to not use any stamps on your creation this time.   I promise...it's not so bad!  LOL

Until next time...
