Time Out Challenge #73

Welcome to our last challenge this year at Time Out Challenges

The challenge is our 'Inspired by Words Challenge' and the words are:

'With each sunrise we are given a chance for a new beginning'

You can use any of these words or go with the entire phrase.

I went with celebrating the new beginnings and made this:

I like the combo of grey and purple. I like the way it allows for a soft background. I have used a mix of sentiments from our fabulous sponsors for this challenge STAMPlorations.

Our Guest Designer for this challenge is Marina. Marina is a superb designer-check out her blog here and enjoy her creativity.

All our DT have made wonderful cards and you can see them here.

Enjoy crafting x

    I'm sorry I haven't been around for a while, both mojo and time was lacking... I had a lovely Christmas celebration, my sister's three boys all had chickenpox but they all behaved really well and were so excited by Santa's visit and all the presents. Enjoy the rest of your holidays! Mine feels short this year, I'm going back to work tomorrow.

  8. Elegant and lovely, Sandie ... love the contrast of the bold purple with the soft subtle grey! Hugs, Anita :)
