Good morning all. I hope the weather is being kind to you wherever you are, here on the East Coast of England it is very wet almost sleety yuk!!
Today brings us to the first challenge of 2011 for Crafty Calendar Challenges and this month our challenge is 'New Beginnings' that can include new year, new baby, new home or engagement/wedding etc. The optional extra this month is to 'Use A Border Punch' which you will notice I didn't use this month.
This month we are being sponsored by Janet at Pink Gem Designs and the winner will receive 4 digi images. If you pop over to the Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog you will see that some of the design team used Janet's designs on their gorgeous cards.
Here is my new baby card which I was asked to make for a baby boy who weighed in at less than 2lb's, that's not even as big as a bag of sugar. The parents were told he wasn't likely to last a week due to so many complications but thankfully he is still going strong, proved the doctors wrong and proved to be a real little fighter named Harley.
