Happy New Year!!

Well it's goodbye 2013 and hello 2014, and more importantly it's Wednesday and time for a new Stampotique Challenge with our brand new (and some not so new) design team :-). Our first challenge of the year is Anything Goes, and to see in the new year, here's a calendar page for January.
I started with a background using Pan Pastels and stencils.
I love the new metallic Pan Pastels - Mmm shiny!
Time for some stamping now. I've used 
Row of Numbers,
Vintage Script, and
Design Cube
There's also Jo's Dandelion Duo in there, stamped in white acrylic for the snowflakes.
So time to cover it all up again lol. You can just see Jo's Star peeping out, this was free in Craft Stamper a couple of years ago and is such a fab stamp.
Here's the guys in a little more detail. There's 
Whisker Monster With Sign
and Toto who will always be my teamie Sam's glamorous assistant Poppy to me!

It's a nice gentle introduction to our challenges this year so please join in. As always no digi stamps please - rubber rules!

I'm also entering this into the Pan Pastel Challenge Anything Goes, and I'm linking into Kate's 2014 Calendar.
Thanks very much for looking and have a very happy and healthy 2014 xx
