Hello to all my lovely friends and followers.  Today marks the beginning of 2 New Challenges that I am fortunate enough to be part of.  The first up is for the lovely artist Julia Spiri and can be found at Julia Spiri Challenge.   The challenges are every other Thursday.

The theme will always be Anything Goes with a twist, the design team will be following the twist and although we would like you to do the same, it is not essential.

Winners will be announced the following week and the prize must be claimed before the next challenge goes live.  The winner will be chosen at random and there will be a Top 3 will be chosen by the design team.

You can play along with any image but will be limited to 3 entries.  However, if you enter with an image from Julia Spiri Etsy Shop, you can play as much as you wish. You may also enter your project into as many other challenges as you wish.

Our chosen winner will receive 2 images but if the random winner has used a Julia Spiri Etsy Shop image you will get 4 images and a GDT spot for a future challenge!!

Your creation must be new and posted on or after the Thursday the challenge goes live.  Please link to your page rather than your blog as a whole.

All types of paper crafting projects, cards, altered art, up-cycling, ATC's etc. are allowed and encouraged!

We hope you choose to become one of our followers.  We also have a Stamps By Julia Spiri Facebook Fan Group, which has challenges using Julia Spiri Etsy Shop images so if you have used one of Julia's images in this challenge make sure to enter it there too!  This gives you another chance to win image and GDT spots!!

Our challenge theme this time is Anything goes with a twist and the twist is ANYTHING NEW.  This can be a new digi, new pen, new papers, new embellishment, anything you have used that is new.

So, now that you have all the information, come and play along with us!!

My creation today features the image Boy and Girl from Julia Spiri Etsy Shop.  This image is new for me, but I have also used a fold that is new for me - I have never used this particular stair step fold before, but I really like it, so I know you will be seeing it again.

Image is colored with Copics and cut out with Nestie.  I chose lighter shades of the colors this time around and I really love how it turned out!  I added this wonderful sentiment from Papertrey Ink, cut with Nestie, and flowers from Prima.  Buttons are Bag O Buttons and DP is My Mind's Eye.  There is also a small card on the bottom left in case you want to add some personal thoughts in the card.  I sure hope you like it and will come join our new challenge!!  Hugs:)
