"It's A Brand New Day..."

It's that time again peeps, the time for another stunning new release from the multi-talented designer Kenny K. There are three lovely ladies for you to download (head over to Kenny K Downloads now):
Ski Bunny,
Cozy Cocoa,
and (above) City Star.
They are available as a bundle for the incredible price of $8.99, which in these days of rising prices is a lovely saving, especially for something you can use over and over again. The theme for this fortnight's Challenge is
Holiday Chic: Sparkle
Remember, you MUST use a Kenny K image to enter but as there are so many wonderful images to choose from I don't think you will have a problem finding something you can use.
The challenge has two sponsors: 
who are offering a $20 Gift Certificate from their shop
and of course
who are offering the winner a choice of 5 digis from their shop (I wouldn't even know where to begin if I won! there are so many stunning images to choose from).
So Good Luck and I hope I see some amazing work over the next couple of weeks. I have been asked by Kenny and Elena (hiya!) to be Guest Designer again so I guess someone out there likes me eh!
Before I disappear again, I would like to say a big thank you for the lovely words that have been left for me this week, they have meant a lot to me and it so nice to know that someone reads what I put out there. Bailey was such a lovely dog and after writing my last post Jo and I sat and bawled our eyes out, it was very cathartic but I can't stop thinking about my sister and how lost he she is at the moment, I hope her heart mends soon.
I also want to give a big shout out to my newest Followers, thanks for the continued support.
I will be back again soon with some more cards, until then,
take care,
Hugs 'n Stuff,

  15. Totally gorgeous creation Andy, beautifully coloured and a fab design. Sorry haven't been about lately but had a few family issues, but I wanted to say how sorry I am about the loss of Bailey I know how hard it is to lose such a special friend and he was obviously an amazing boy. Sending big hugs to you and Jo (just sent one to your sis!) at this very sad time.
    Will definately see you both next Saturday with lots of new goodies in stock including brand new Maggies and the Magnolia magazine.
    Big Hugs
