Snowflake Love Pendant Thanks...Inkspirational Challenge #99~Thank You, with Something New

Hello!

Welcome to our first 2016 challenge at  Inkspirational Challenge #99~Designer's Choice, where our sweet Kim has chosen:


Hopefully, you received one or two (or 12...) new products this Christmas that need some showing off!  If so, you've come to the right place.  Bring those newcomers out and give them some TLC!

Joining us in launching this challenge is our talented Guest Designer, Maaike, whose 'something new' will make you smile!  Please drop by my teammate's blogs - KimSandieMarinaNonniPiaShauna - where more newness awaits...

I was richly blessed with Christmas gifts this year, from spending time with my family and husband (who bought me the coolest skirt ever!), to receiving crafting products from friends that just blew. me. away!  Guaranteed you'll see all of them 'strutting their stuff' in the near future (although one will take a bit longer, as some serious beforehand practice is required).  Feeling very special....

Today, I'm thrilled to showcase a new Memory Box Snowflake Love Pendant die sent from a sweet, incredibly creative, marvelously generous, blogging friend (THANK YOU, Jeanne!)! Talk about a surprise; talk about making my heart sing!  The die is ever so lovely and delicate, most deserving of a staring role on the stage.  I'm looking forward to using this die cut again and again, with different backgrounds, for thank you, or just because, or so glad you're my friend notes. The heart and snowflakes combination...oh, the possibilities!



Your turn!  Looking forward to seeing the new goodies you received  over Christmas in the gallery!  I'm going to keep a pen  handy as I comment, because it's pretty much a certainty I'll feel a "list" coming on...

Thank you for spending time with me today; your visits are so very appreciated!
