New, new, new.....

Hello all!
Happy New Year to all - it's been a while since I last posted.................... I've been away from home, visiting family in the UK and I managed to pick up a delightful cold virus which pretty much knocked me off my feet for a while!  Never mind, what would the holiday season be without a bug or two?
                   It's the first Friday of the year so time for a challenge with The Outlawz copic/promarker DT group.  For our first one of the year, we're asking you for something 'new' - new year, new beginnings, new start, new baby, new home - the list goes on and on!

            I decided to use one of my own digis, available from Can You Digi It? - "Mouse Home".  I wanted to make it look like a picture on a wall so I cut a frame using my Cameo and used some wallpaper-like background paper.  The sentiment is computer generated on white cardstock which I scored to make it look like a skirting board or base-board, depending on which side of the ocean you live and I drew the mousehole (I think it works!).

Hope your New Year is off to a great start - why not head over to The Outlawz and check out the rest of the DT's work and join in with us?

Too darling, Dawn--and so creative! Love the image & coloring, cute design, & fun papers & frame!
So sorry you got so sick. I got the dreaded cold a week before Christmas, but it was a very mild one, knock on wood! Thanks for the sweet comments on my blog! Hope you're having a great weekend. :^)

Welcome back! Sorry that you've gotten sick. There's so much going around right now. I hope you're beginning to feel better!

Your card is fabulous. That image is great. My favorite part? The mouse hole in the baseboard.

Happy New Year!
