Hi peeps, here I am again!  Wow - two posts in one day, that's a record for me!!
So - here is my DT card for this week's challenge over at OSAAT. The theme is New Beginnings, which gives you quite a wide range of options - new home, new baby, new job, new love - oooh the list is endless!! Can't wait to see your wonderful projects, and thanks to everyone who took part in the fun last week - your creations were fabulous!
This week's prize is a £10 voucher from our wonderful sponsor Joanna Sheen to spend in her on-line shop.
My take on the theme, is the beginning of a new season - Winter into Spring, when the new green shoots and tiny buds start to appear. (I love Spring)!
I have used a beautiful tree image from a digi set by Gingerloft, available to purchase from Stitchy Bear Stamps (please see the link in my sidebar).
The Winter tree scene is sprinkled here and there with Glamour Dust, and the Spring tree is the same image with Distress inks for a hint of colour, Copics to create some tiny flowers, and a kiss of craft chalk for the sky.
SU card for the layers, and some green Anna Griffin ribbon to finish.
The sentiment is computer-generated.
Did you know that OSAAT will be ONE YEAR OLD
on Feb. 14th?
Have you picked up your
1st Birthday Bash banner yet? 
If you want to know what this is all about - pop over to
OSAAT  for the details ~  there are prizes to be won.......!!
Wishing you all a splendiferous week!

I didn't realise you had done two posts in a day. I love the tree image, it could be used so many different ways.
