January 2012 Challenge!

Happy New Year Everyone and hope you had a wonderful evening!  We wish you all the best for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2012!

And with the new year and the beginning of another month, we also have another challenge...  A non-traditional colour challenge, but could also be combined with traditional colours, so think pink, purple, orange etc.
And as a bonus challenge - use some kind of embossing (dry, heat, etc). We know not everyone has the tools for embossing, so don't want to prevent people from playing, but it might be a fun one to add if you have the tools/product!





*Remember if you do 5 cards this month following the challenge, your name will go into a draw for a prize at the end of January! (this challenge CAN be combined with any other blog or forum challenges that you do this month.)
Please upload your cards to your blog, a gallery, or photobucket and remember to give us the EXACT links to see them. You can do 5 of the same cards or 5 different ones (as long as they follow the current challenge) If you do 5 of the same, please show us a picture of them altogether. Thanks

***Also, if at least 20 people create 5 cards we'll pick a second winner!***

Keep your eyes out throughout the month for more reveals and intros to our new team members as well! It's going to be hard to beat all those fabulous entries from December!  Way to go ladies!  You had some serious mojo going!  Looking forward to seeing more cards soon, so get your mojo on again!

Colleen and Lesley

Just uploaded my first card for this year. Hope you'll be posted more of your inspirational DT work this year.
BTW, what happened to the monthly prizes for September through December 2011? Haven't seen any winners posts for those months.
