New Beginnings

Another gorgeous sunny day and I am a little late in posting my DT card for today.  It was my granddaughter Emma's 7th birthday yesterday and by the time I got home last night I completely forgot to schedule my post for today.

Now before I get to this weeks challenge I have some news for all you Fab'n'Funky challengers! Our leader Lou has sadly decided to stand down from the challenge blog due to having too many demands on her time.  We're sad to see you go Lou and hope you'll come and visit us from time to time!

That means its time for a change at Fab'n'Funky challenges and the blog is now "under new management " Lou has handed the blog over to Judith so its business as usual, I am sure Judith will do a splendid job and hope you all continue to support us.  

Our host for this week is the lovely Rachel and theme is:

New Beginnings
We would like to see new celebrations (home, baby, job etc) or new stash used on your project.

We have a great new sponsor this week:

With a super prize of $10 to spend in her fabulous digi shop.

Now for my DT card I have used the new Portobello Road papers from Docrafts, my image is a Funstamps stamp that I have had for years coloured with Copics and I added flowers from Wild Orchid and a ribbon.

Please visit the challenge blog and see the great creations by my teamies and we look forward to seeing your projects.
