New Year, New Baby!

Good Morning Friends & Welcome Back!!

The Design Team at OSAAT is back as of today, with our weekly challenges, after a much needed break and some family time. What better theme than #195 - "Starting New", to kick off a brand new year? This could be trying a new technique, using something you had new for Christmas, or maybe a wedding card or new baby, even a birthday card is the start of something new

Our sponsor this week is StitchyBear Digital Outlet with $9 to spend in the store. To win this prize you MUST use a digi from the StitchyBear Digital Outlet. You can still enter with a none StitchyBear Digi Outlet image but will be entered into a separate draw to win $3 to spend in our store.

When thinking of 'new things' my mind automatically goes to the 2 new grand-children my hubby and I will be getting this year. We even found out the gender of each little bundle over the holidays! Our daughter and her hubby are having a boy due on May 8th! Our son and his wife are expecting their first child on June 5th, and its a girl! With these additions, we will have 4 precious grand-children, 2 girls and 2 boys!! 'New things' are pretty good I think :)

Keeping all this in mind, I'm sure my card will come as no big surprise to any of you, lol.
