New Challenge for January: [CUTE]

Hello hello :-)

I'm shure, the most of you will sleep the half day.... but somewhen everybody has to get up, and then you will read this:
Happy new year to all of you! We hope, you all had a wonderful night with best friends and familys and we wishing you all the best, luck and health for the new year!

So, new year, new challenge ;-)
After all the christimas and wintercards, maybe our new theme will free your mind and inspire you.

And for some inspiration we asked our Challenge-Winner and participants from the last month to make a little card for you.

The first card is from our last-month-winner Kerstin.. she made our litte piggy (Set "Lovely Critters") much more cuter with this little bow. But look at these awesome background with the watercolor-circles... but its colored soft enough, that this sweet piggy keeps beeing the focus on the card.. thank you so much Kerstin

The second card is from Kati, one of the two ladies from the Schnipselallerlei-Blog. She had the over-cute Idea to let the penguins take a bath... isn't that gorgeous? Looks like they have a lot of fun.. hihi.. and did you've seen the shaddows? Wow.. thank you soo much for this card, Kati :-)

And also the lovely Alexandra made one card for our challenge. Such an awesome polar-light-colored background... my heart melts..... or maybe its because of the "warm fuzzies"? ;-)

Thank you girls so much for giving us such beautiful inspirations... :-)

  3. I have admired Create A Smile designs for some time. These cards were the inspiration I needed to make a card with one of the free digi-stamps. The experience definitely created a smile in my face. Thanks. Cheers!
