HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Wishing everyone a most joyous 2017, filled with all things wonderful and more wonderful!
A new month, a new year AND a new challenge: Serendipity Stamps Challenge #63~Anything Goes. We also have something 'new' - andbittersweet - to announce over at Serendipity: our wonderful Jeanne Jachna has decided to leave the team. Mary's tribute to Jeanne expresses how impressive her contributions have been:
"For 5 years Jeanne has guided the Serendipity Stamps Design Team far beyond anything I ever imagined. She’s inspired and led me toward products, designs, and programs that have helped move Serendipity from a wholesale based company to a company that can hold its own in blogland. She’s worked tirelessly to promote Serendipity’s name and products. She’s guided our design team to an organized system of releases and challenges on the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog. I thank Jeanne with all my heart as she moves on to new endeavors!"
Jeanne, you will be deeply missed here BUT, we know where to find you: A Kept Life. Looking forward to discovering what new undertakings you'll be dazzling us with in 2017! An extra special THANK YOU for introducing me to Mary and encouraging her to bring me on board! Dream come true...and I owe it entirely to you!
Before I get more teary eyed, let's shift gears! Today, we're inviting you to join us for Serendipity Stamps Challenge #63~Anything Goes.On the first of the month, we post a new challenge with a central theme. The design team provides samples for inspiration at the beginning and again at the half way point. You have the whole month to join us! The only 'rule': use at least one Serendipity Stamp image on your creation. The incentive: winning some goodies from Serendipity Stamps.
January 1st..and before we blink, February, will be on the horizon. And we know what that means! My sister-in-law has already requested Valentine's Day cards for my niece and nephew's teachers and, as always, I'm ready to deliver! For this challenge, I'm featuring the Love Die and Hearts Stamp Set which were such fun (and simple!) to colour. Chameleon pens came out for a play....
One card done...and about 7 more to go. Then comes the Valentine's Day 'somethings' for my niece's 26 classmates and my nephew's 25 daycare pals. I'm going to have love, hearts and sweetness on the brain for the next while! I love making V-Day stuff....just sayin'!
Please head over to visit my wonderful teammates' Anything Goes designs; delight guaranteed!
Turning the stage over to you:
How does *Anything Goes* spark your creativity?
What Serendipity Stamp will you feature?
Looking forward to seeing your creativity in the gallery!
Be sure to link up at the challenge blog by January 31st @ 11:55pm.
To celebrate the New Year, m husband and I are commandeering my brother and sister-in-law's kitchen to make homemade pizzas for them, my niece and nephew, my mom, my sister and her husband, and my sister-in-law's parents. My niece and nephew are looking forward to Uncle Andy tossing the dough in the air (or floor, as the case may be *grin*). Pizza-palooza about to unfold!!
Thank you for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!
