Yes, You Are Beautiful :)

Happy New Year my dear friends!!!
I hope that the holiday weekend was a memorable and beautiful one :) 
We kept things very low key, stayed home and watch the New Year ball drop in Times Square from our TV, hee hee! Both our boys stayed up this year, a first! And we were just sooo very happy and felt so blessed to be together snuggled up on the couch with our bellies full of warm chocolate chip cookies and milk :) 

I'm so excited to start this year! 
So many fun things are happening all over the place ;) 

I'm starting it off with the first Monday Fun Day Challenge 
from The Greeting Farm today :) 
This week's challenge you are to use the color combo of... 
Blue, White and One Other Color of your choice! 

I used the following challenges on my card too:
- Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge #39: Ribbon and Sparkle
- Wee Memories Challenge #82: Something New (Stamps and Ribbon)

I don't know what I was thinking - I was stressing out as to what my 3rd color should be and finally decided how nice red would look... then while I was taking my pics - I noticed that my 'other color' should have been the kraft that I had already used on my card! Duuuhhhhh, lol! Ooops... 

I used two new TGF Clear Stamp Sets on my card :) 
The first is called "Lucky Bunnies"
Isn't he the cutest and most snuggle-y-est bunny you have ever seen?!?! 
I was SOOO thrilled to see this cute little critter during this release :) 
The beautiful sentiment is also from this stamp set! 

The second stamp set that I used, and will be using ALL THE TIME,
is the new "Made By" Clear Stamp Set... 

Oh. My. Goodness! 
This stamp set is ah-maaazing! 
There is absolutely no excuse for me not to add my chicken scratch to any of my projects anymore, hee hee ;) 

I hope you'll play along with us!
Please be sure to visit the rest of the DT too!!! 

Happy M-day ;)

PS - did you see my new book blog yet??? ;)

I think adding the red was perfect, I always consider Kraft to be a neutral color anyway! Your card is gorgeous!

Oh Margie this is adorable! I love love love the kraft cardstock with this cutie!! This made me giggle, I have to tell you that I goofed too (must have been the lucky bunny thing). I thought it was blue, red, and another color, so I ended up using 3 as well. hahaha! What a doof! Because I set up the post that day! Have a great day my friend! I LOVE working with you on the Farm!
