My Time To Craft Meets Crafty Calendar Challenge.

Good morning all and Happy New Year. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and santa brought you lots of lovely pressies. We ended up having Christmas for New Year as both David and myself were ill and didn't want to pass it on so cancelled Christmas but it was lovely to finally see our family over the new year. 

Today is the first Saturday of the month and the start of our new challenge at Crafty Calendar Challenge where the challenge is 'What's New?' and it is also the first challenge of the new year at My Time To Craft where the challenge is 'All About The New'. So for both challenges you can make anything to do with new such as baby, home, beginnings, job, car etc etc.

Because both challenges were the same I decided to make a sort of gift set for both. I took several photo's as it wasn't very clear all in one.

Here is the card which I cut on my Cameo and then embossed before adding the little pegs and baker's twine instead of the paper laundry line that came as part of the set.

I then cut this little gift box and glued the sides but as you can see from the photo I don't think I should have oops.

Next I made this little door sign to complete my set.

I didn't have anyone in mind for this set I just really like the design as soon as I saw it, however I do quite often get asked for baby cards so don't think this will be around for long.
Here is the set all together.
Card Stock - Bazzill
Designer Papers - Craft Creations
Embossing - Crafts Too 'Hearts' folder
Baker's Twine - My Craft Spot
Pegs - In My Stash Forever
Gems - Home Bargains.

Challenges I would like to enter this into:-
Crafty Creations - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Emboss It 
Divas By Design - Anything Goes
For Fun - Something New
Freshly Brewed - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Something New
ABC - Embossing
Alota - New Born
Unique Crafter's - New Beginnings

That's all from me. I have Shell My Time To Craft owner and fellow Moving Along With The Times teamie coming for a visit today so it will be lots of giggles and maybe some crafting for the day.
