Another year has come and gone.  We are starting a new challenge over here at 

With a new year we thought we should use something new.  I know we all got some crafty goodies for Christmas so let's see them.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art.

This cute little girl is called "Peanut".  I just love the panda hoodie she is wearing.  I thought it was adorable.  I'm showing off some new paper and heart drops from October Afternoon.  They came in a candy win.  The new ombre ribbon I got from a recent challenge win where I received a whole bunch of ribbon from Crafty Ribbons.  

A few years ago I lost my mom.  January 9 is her birthday and she would have been 75 years old.  I want to wish her a happy birthday and let her know I am thinking of her.  You never quite get passed the loss of your mom.  I think of her always but know that she is so much happier now.  She was paralyzed for almost 30 years.  I hope she is dancing today.

My sister and I made this collage for her memorial service.  I miss her very much.

I do hope you will join in the challenge this fortnight and check out all the other wonderful creations made to inspire you at CWWC

Beautiful collage for your mom ... so sorry you lost her so young! Mine will be 86 end of the month and has been ill the past few weeks (so out of character for her) and it breaks my heart to see her this way. I can only imagine what you all must have endured! I too hope she is DANCING UP A STORM IN HEAVEN!
Now onto your card ...
