Monday Morning Challenge No. 2

Happy Monday everyone and thank you for stopping by! It's already the last Monday of the month, in fact the last Monday of the year (where did this year go??!!), and so it's time for the second Monday Morning challenge. 
It was so nice to see so many of you join in and a warm welcome to all my new followers! I am not quite caught up commenting on all entries (I tried to spend less time online over the holidays) but will try to catch up in the next day. I do want to apologize, but I cannot comment on entries where a google plus account is required for commenting. 

Before I get to the new challenge, it's first time to announce last challenge winner. I used to draw a number, and the winning number is No. 53.

That would be Jean C.

Congratulations Jean, please email me at ellibelle_blog at yahoo dot com with your mailing address so I can send you the prize.


I picked out another fun challenge this month...

New Somethings

This can be new crafty goodies, new baby, new home, new job, and probably many more new somethings. Simply link your creation below.

A few things to remember:
It must be a new creation
You must mention my challenge and link back here in your post
Combine with other challenges as you wish
You may enter up to 4 times
(As last month, unfortunately due to postage costs, winners will be chosen from USA entries only.)

Now onto my card using New Somethings. I used some brand new Penny Black stamp sets from the  2015 Love and Friendship collection. They are also available for purchase in my Etsy Stamp Shop.

Product list:
copic xpress blending card, 
designer papers from stash
copics for colorin, clear button, twine
Have you recently tried the new Penny Black Transparent line of stamps? I just recently received them and I am very  happy to report that Penny Black now uses a different, quality material to create them. They no longer fall off the clear blocks and they stamp beautifully. Soooo happy about that, because I had quit buying their clear stamps, since I didn't like the quality of the first clear Penny Black stamp sets I purchased.

The prize for this challenge is once again sponsored by my shop Timeless Stamps.
One lucky winner will receive the beautiful cling stamp below.

  I would also like to enter my card to a few other challenges:

Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday -  Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp -  Anything Goes 
My Craft Creations - Always Anything Goes

Now it's your turn to get creative. You have until January 24th 10pm Central time to play along. If inlinkz is missing, simply leave the link in the comments. New challenge will start January 26th.

Happy Stamping!
