CCC #25.... Happy New Year!!!

Hello friends!!  Happy New Year and welcome to the first CASology challenge of 2013 and welcome to our new design team members:  Judy, Maureen and Meghan!!!   So excited to have these super talented ladies joining the CASology team!!  Given that today is the first day of a brand new year our cue word is "new".   All the challenge details can be found here.  And to add to the excitement we are joined by this week's guest designer, Deb!! 



 
Initially I had a different idea for my card, but when I finally got a chance to put the idea to the test the other day it wasn't working and I was running out of time.  So I went to plan b and put together a little "welcome new neighbor" card.  The row of houses stamp is a woodblock stamp from Hero Arts.  I stamped the entire image using brown ink on the white cardstock.   I then stamped the various houses using different colored inks, trimmed them out and adhered them at various heights using foam dots.  The sentiment is from a PTI set Spring Time Doodles.  I finished the card off with a little bit of twine. 

Thanks for stopping by... make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Tracey, Jen, Ardyth, Judy, Maureen, Meghan and this week's guest designer Deb, Can't wait to see what you come up with using this week's cue word!
