AS we enter a new year, its time to think back on last year and look ahead to the new year and to the memories we are going to make. Look ahead to what we want to accomplish. Will it be a year to make big changes, little changes or keep the status quo. Me, I need to lose some weight as well as make a few other healthy changes. I also want to get more scrapbook pages done than I did in 2014 and I want to make more cards. Which brings me to our challenge for January.
 Our awesome sponsor to start the year off right with us is:

 Sunflowerfield Webstore!!!
Facebook page -  Sunflowerfield on Facebook

Your project can be any crafty thing you make or alter. You can make a sweater, do a scrapbook page, alter a box, book, candle, etc. You can also make a card.

And remember ANYTHING GOES.  Now here are some wonderful ideas from our design team members.


Thankful by Sunflowerfield
  This is a swing card technique with paper piercing on the digital image in addition to watercolors on the pumpkin and apple leaves.  Two embossing folders were used on the card base.
