Eeeekkkk!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
WOW!!! It's 2013! Where does the TIME go?  :)  

We are so glad you stopped by!  Our Team is excited as we are starting off the new year with a BANG!  More AWESOME Sponsors have partnered with us to join our already fabulous line-up of sponsors, and so we couldn't wait to share the news with you!!  What an honor to have all of these generous Sponsors on board!  They all have wonderful products to offer and most even carry House-Mouse Designs Stamps. This is great news for all HM& lovers and we couldn't be happier to welcome them on board!

Before moving along, we must thank you again for your amazing support this past year. We couldnt have kept the blog running without your fabulous entries that make our day!  Thank you also to those who were able to create a project for this last challenge when it was over a crazy busy time of the year!  (If you didnt get a chance to enter, you can definitely do so with our NEW challenge below.)  Its always tough for us to have to choose the winners and wish we culd give everyone a prize!  After much deliberation, our amazing Teamie, Kate, (who hosted the last challenge), has finally settled on her two Lucky winners, and they are as follows..... drum roll please.....

A Big CONGRATULATIONS to you Both!!!!  
Please contact America to claim your prizes!

Our first challenge this Year is hosted by our mega talented Teamie, Christine Craig, and she's chosen to go with the most fitting theme for this time of the year...

*** New Beginnings ***
Your creation could be for a New Beginning in the New Year with Resolutions, (like being healthier, or, being more organized). It could also referring to anything that is New; like a New Baby, a New Job, a New Home, a New Love, a New Life in Wedded bliss, New Friends, NEW crafty tools... really anything that brings NEW Beginnings!  
If it's New, it qualifies! :)

Please remember to use this challenge code HMFMC136 when uploading your projects to any online galleries. This will help us to find your work easily.
