Happy New Year!!

Happy New Year everyone!   I know the calendar says January 7th, so 2012 has just started and I'm already a week behind. That's okay I'll catch up by Valentine's Day!  I'm not too far behind because I still have time to post a "Happy Newt Year" project for the HamboHoedown Challenge.  I received this cute "Reptile" digi and some Happy Newt year sentiments.  The challenge is to create a project using something new.  For Christmas I got some new Sizzix Tim Holtz Alteration dies.  I used the die called "Ornamental" to create the design.

You can't see it very well but the background paper looks like the skin of a reptile.  As I mentioned I used my new Sizzix Tim Holtz Ornamental die to cut out the design in green and then my digi in white.  I trimmed the white diecut and attached it to the green diecut then added ribbon where the 2 designs layered. The "reptile" digi is another great design from Tim at HamboStamps.  If you haven't seen some of his digi's you have to take the time to check them out at  I colored the "reptile" digi with my Copics Markers and I paper pieced his shirt using the Stampin' Up stamp "Solid Stripes".  I wish you a Happy and Healthy 2012 and hope you find time to stop by my blog throughout the year.
