Paper Sweeties January Sketch Challenge

Are you a fan of Paper Sweeties?  They are the sweetest set of little dolls you can imagine.  There's lots of clever sentiments and accessories in the sets so the possibilities are endless.  Did you know they have a sketch challenge every month?  Well check it out!  Here is the latest sketch!  All you have to do is create a project following the sketch design using you Paper Sweeties stamps.  What a great way to get ideas to use the stamps you already have and if you play along you could win a few free sets to add to your collection.  You even get a whole month to play!
I've been sticking with a theme since the challenge started two months ago.  I've been creating a scene using both Jake and one of the ladies to commemorate the month. For Thanksgiving they were pilgrims, for Christmas Jake was in his military Class A's meeting his sweetie under the mistletoe, and this time I have the couple ringing in the new year!  I put them under a banner announcing  the new year, topped them with party hats, and used lots of fun colors!  I can't wait to see what you come up with for the challenge.
Need a little inspiration?  Well the design team is playing along too!  They're sure to come up with something fantastic! Have a blessed and beautiful new year full of time to create!
