New 'Ewe' Quirky Pink Challenge!

Evening Bloggers. Trust me to be doing something else (having baby cuddles) and forgetting to put this post on timer! Never mind! It's that Quirky time again and it's my turn to set the theme and seeing my brand new baby granddaughter was born last weekend I thought the first challenge of 2013 over on Quirky Craft Challenge blog has to be Some Thing New with PINK! Easy!!
We have loads of ideas for you over on Quirky. Here's one of mine for now, I'll show you the others later...(or nip over and see some of them now)
 Ofcourse I don't mind how you interpretative the challenge, it can be a new home, new job, a new baby, using some of your new Christmas stash, or even a New Years card! (Like mine!!) But there has to be PINK somewhere on the card, loads of pink, or just a smidgen, it's up to you! Don't forget, you can make anything you like, it doesn't have to be a card, we Quirky Ladies love to see altered art, inchies, tags, fatpages, atc's and scrapbook pages too!
This one started off as a plain white pearl card which I edged  with a pink Promarker  and added a sheet of backing paper from a 6x6 pack 'Neighbourwood' covered in hearts. Some of  the papers already have glitter on them!
Rare for me, I've added peel-offs, corners, edging and a Happy New Year sentiment. I've had them sooo long they'd stuck to the sheet and wouldn't come off. It doesn't pay to buy loads cheep if you're not going to use them!
Some thing 'New' !!
Those stars, with beads on wires, have been hanging around my craft room for about four years, pleading with me to use them and suddenly they seemed to be just right! I've added a bit of purple/black eye-lash wool. The inside I've left blank, as I'm going to be sending this off with a little bit of 'journalling' inside.The inside backing paper came from a freebie pack from PaperCraft Essentials Magazine, ages ago, called Sweet Wishes.
The digi is from Bugaboo Sheep-Happy-new-year-to-ewe. As you can see I've 3D-ed him. The first sheet with the added sentiment, which comes with him, then added the second layer with just the sheep and the clock, the third layer is just the sheep and the last layer is the sheep's face and hat... I've only used Pastel Blue and  Cocktail Pink, so not too much colouring!
That's it! More the moment Jinx, (the lodger cat) is trying to push me out of my chair! Hoping to add some...
 One stitch at a time-new (New Year)
