Hugs -- for Star Stampz

This is my first post for the Star Stampz design team.  There is a Star Stampz challenge blog, and challenges run every 2 weeks.  This week, the theme is "Something New" -- always a good theme this time of year. 

I've used the digi stamp, 'My Sweet Rose' on my first Star Stampz card....

I colored My Sweet Rose with Copic markers, then used various circle dies to cut her out.  She is a new digi for me -- my first 'new' for this challenge.  The stitched circle die is new for me, from Craftin' Desert Divas.  It just arrived yesterday.  Woohoo!  The gold doily, also new, is from Bella Creationz.  The enamel dots, the last of my 'new' items, are from My Mind's Eye.  Papers  and glimmer trim for this card are from Close To My Heart.

I hope you join us the next 2 weeks for our 'new' challenge at Star Stampz Challenge Blog.  I hope you have some new things in your craft room, &/or new ideas you'd like to try.  I'd love to see what you make.

Come join the Star Stampz Facebook Fan Group, too!  I'd love to see you there, chat with you, and there's tons of inspiration to be found!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:
613 Avenue Create -- ATG with CAS option
Cards in Envy -- Shiny New Year 
Crafty Boots challenge -- Something Old, Something New

Want to leave you with the inspiration of the Scripture in 1 Corinthians 2:9-10 which says, "But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”— these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. " Have a lovely week.
