StampTV Challenge

Hello Friends!  It's an auspicious day on the Chinese calendar today - it marks the beginning of Spring and the celebration of Chinese New Year (CNY).  Although my family does not keep to many Chinese traditions, we do celebrate CNY and it's a time of the year, where we do lots of baking, cooking, etc.

Today is also special day for me, because I'm hosting a Challenge for the first time at StampTV!  Pretty nervous about it, and yet so very excited!!  I hope you will visit StampTV and join the challenge.  Since, it is CNY, I thought it might be fun to have a challenge related to the celebration.

Check out the challenge & some background information here, and please join me for some fun, and you might win a Gina K stamp set!

Here's my card for the challenge :

I used Stamps from Theresa Momber's Dogwood and Butterfly stamp set (I LOVE this set!!), and papers from My Mind's Eye Love Me 6x6 pad.  The images were coloured with Copic Markers, and on the butterfly, I added some Glossy Accents for added interest.  Here's another look at the card:

For more info, please click on the link to StampTV where you'll find details of the challenge.  I really look forward to see you at StampTV and can't wait to see what you create.

Enjoy today, wherever you are.
