New Beginnings at Dream Valley

Our first challenge over at Dream Valley was a huge success!  Thank you everyone who participated!  I really enjoyed looking at all the variety of projects that were uploaded!

As that was the first challenge it only ran for one week, but this second and any subsequent challenges will run for two weeks.  This time the challenge is New Beginnings.  For example:  new baby, new car, new house, wedding etc.  We are sponsored by One Stop Card Crafts and Crafty Ribbons. One Stop Card Crafts is offering up a 10 pound gift voucher valid at their shop.  Crafty Ribbons is providing the new Bev bag selection.  Great prizes, so make sure you come share your new beginning!

I have made a "just moved" postcard that I am very proud of!  It is the first time that I have combined a digi and a rubber stamp in the same project.  The house is a digi from Pollycraft and the truck and it's contents and the sentiment is from Stampin' Up sets Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories.  I stamped/printed the images and colored them with my copics.

The blue sky and the ground I have sponged on with Stampin' Up ink Bashful Blue and Close to Cocoa.  I have stamped the sentiment in the upper left and then adhered the truck with some pop dots.

I have also entered this card into Papertake Weekly Challenge of anything goes and use something old.  The Loads of Love Set has definitely seen some age, but I love it!

Have a great week everyone!
