SFYTT-A New Year!!!

***This is my 2nd post today! PLEASE scroll down to see my Greeting Farm Blog Hop card! Thanks so much!!***

Hello again! As you can see, it's been very busy on my blog for the past week or so, lol! SO much fun stuff going on! The Greeting Farm just had a fabulous release, we start sneak peeks for Verve's new release on Tuesday, and TODAY is the day we get to kick off SFYTT again! I have REALLY missed creating with Jen's sketches so I'm so happy we're back in the game;)

**SFYTT is going to go a little differently this year, we only have ONE sketch a month, but we'll be using it a couple times a month! The only official team posting we're going to do is on the FIRST SATURDAY OF THE MONTH! So schedule it in your little black or pink book and carve some time out for the sketch:) **

**Click here to visit the store**
The Cat's Pajamas is sponsoring our sketch this month so be sure to check the store out! There are some AMAZING designs in there and I can't wait to order some:) Unfortunately, by the time I found out they were our sponsor I didn't have time to order with enough time for the stamps to get here! So I don't have a TCP card to share with you, but I bet all the other sistah's do!

Here's January's FABULOUS sketch!

Fab sketch! I seriously had SO much fun with this one and can't wait to use it again:)

Here's my card using Bird Watching by PTI and Thankful Hearts by Verve!

I realized too late that my main image panel is slightly different from the sketch, but it was too late to change:( 
I colored the bird houses to match this paper by Imaginisce but then changed my mind and went with a cardstock-only card instead:) The pink is by GinaK Designs and the turqouise is by PTI. 

There's not a lot about this card that isn't self-explanatory so I won't bore you with obvious details;)

Want to hear a surprise? Jen has details on her blog about a FABULOUS prize that YOU could WIN just for playing in all 12 of our sketches this year! Hop on over to her blog to read all the giggity-goo! 

AND a HUGE welcome to a new addition on our team! The super fabulous Kerry Johnson is joining our ranks as a full-fledged SFYTT Sister! Sweet, huh? I just love her work!
AND if that wasn't enough, the Ultra Awesome Kim Teasdale is our guest designer for January!!! Make sure you show these talented ladies some love! 

Visit the rest of the team to see what they've done with this sketch!
January Guest Designer, Kim Teasdale

A HUGE thanks to TCP for sponsoring us this month, you guys rock!
And thank YOU for stopping by to visit me today:) I love it when you do!
Happy NEW YEAR!!!

Guess you can tell who didn't do a whole lot of celebrating last night...otherwise I'd never be the first to comment, I'm sure. You did a great job following the sketch. Your card is great. I like the innovative way you handled the circle. On to see the others!

I love your work too Amber and I'm tickled to be on a team with you!!! Fabulous card - I love all the white and the way you did the sentiment with the circle punch - genius!

I do love the bird houses - very sweet. Great colouring too.

Oh Amber! This is gorgeous! Your coloring is amazing, and I just love how you punched out the half-circle and stamped the sentiment!
