CCCB January Challenge: Anything Goes!

Happy New Year, Crafter's Companion friends!  I hope you all celebrated safely last night, and spent some quality time with your loved ones.  The kids surprised me: Patryk lasted until 11:40, and the others made it to midnight!!  We had a great night with neighbors, setting off some fireworks (that went horribly wrong at the end, but we won't talk about that!), playing a little cribbage, and enjoying the most delicious egg nog tinis.

With the hectic holiday coming to an abrupt halt (YAY!!), our first challenge at the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog for 2012 is anything goes.  Pull out your Crafter's Companion stamps and make a little something, whether it be a card, layout, or altered item, for a chance to win the entire Humphrey Christmas collection complete with CD Rom full of the most adorable Humphrey images, a little over 2500 to be exact!

I pulled out the new Love You stamp set from the SWALK Winter collection and went to town coloring it with my Specrtum Noir markers.

MME paper from last year's Christmas cards scraps (I.  Save.  Everything.)  I was so excited to play with these new trims I received in the mail the day before Christmas, Stella & Rose.

A close up at those awesome Spectrum Noir pens (which I still need to practice with when it comes to blending!)
See that gorgeous trim?  Love the texture it adds to the card.
The inside.  I love the sentiment, and the Echo Park Season's Greetings snowflake is the perfect addition.  This was supposed to be for hubby, but he saw it while I was trying to get pictures.  Oh well, he'll forget about it next year, I'll just pull it out then :)

I hope you are inspired by one of the DT creations to play along yourself.  Head over to the Crafter's Companion Challenge blog for details on linking up.

I have to get my little butt outside and keep an eye on hubby, taking down the Christmas lights.  We have great weather for it today, with mild temps.  It's quite strange, but I'll take it!  Off to the in-laws for dinner, can't wait!  I hope you all have a relaxing day and that 2012 brings you everything you want.  Remember to watch the Crafter's Companion Challenge Blog all year for tons of inspiration, new ideas, and lots of incredible prizes!
