Starting the Year off with a Little Bit of Magic

Hi, Friends.......

Happy New Year to you! It is a chilly, icy morning here in Idaho....perfect for staying inside and crafting! :) Is that the way to start off the New Year, or what? YES! January is my favorite month of the year. Holidays are over. New fresh start to a new year and too cold outside to do anything. Crafting month!!! Yay!

The lovely Mrs A. over at the Butterfly Challenge has her butterflies temporarily cocooned up for the winter solstice....but, only temporarily.  Now that it is the New Year, they are almost ready to come back out. In the meantime, it is still fairy, elf, pixie, and gnome domain at her challenge blog....but this is the last day!  Eeeeek!  I better get my fairy cards that I made several weeks ago blogged!!! :)

Supplies used include:
Graphic 45 - Once Upon a Springtime collection
My Favorite Things Die-namics - Stitched Square STAX die set
Core'dinations Kraft paper
Ribbon, tulle, and sequins from stash
Flower from stash
Zig - Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to add shimmer and magic to the flower and around the edges of panels

Thank you for stopping by. I hope your New Year is off to a magical start!!!
