Challenge #140 - Ring in the New Year

Hello and Happy 2012!!! We hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and that you've had some time to relax and recharge so that you're ready for all the fabulous things we have planned for you this year! Yes, The Corrosive Challenge is back after our brief hiatus, and we are ready to ring in the new year right! We have lots of exciting announcements today as well as a new sponsor AND a new challenge!

First, I would like to welcome the new members of our recently expanded design team! We had a wonderful response to the DT call and six lucky ladies were selected to join the team! Meet:
I hope you'll pop by their blogs to leave them some love! I am thrilled to have such a talented team going into the new year! It will be complete once Susan is fully healed and able to rejoin us. The latest update we had said that her leg needs to be kept elevated so crafting and using the computer are still a bit tricky. We all send her well-wishes and hope she'll be back sooner than later!
Next, on to the winner of our December challenge! Please congratulate Marjo of KonaKrafter! Marjo wins two images of her choice from our December sponsor, Saturated Canary! She also gets to be our Guest Designer for the month of February!

A new month brings us a new sponsor, and we have a super cool company to kick off the year in style! Please welcome:

"Digi and rubber stamps from KennyK are a fun and edgy way to add the perfect dose of attitude and style to all of your creations!

The creator, the artist, the man: KennyK is a NYC-born professional illustrator who has brought his funky-but-slick, urban-influenced look to the cardmaking and papercrafts world. His signature style can be seen throughout his various collections of sexy pinup babes, sweet 'n sassy girls, cool rockin ' dudes, kid’s stuff, retro characters and more at"

KennyK has generously offered a prize of 5 digis to our January winner so I know you'll want to play along this month!

Our challenge for this fortnight is one to celebrate the new year, and an excuse to use all those new crafty goodies you received for the holidays!
Challenge #140 is "Ring in the New Year" and we want to see something brand new on your creation. It could be an image, a die, an embellishment or all of the above. As long it is new and never before used, it counts for this challenge. Please tell us in your post what those new items are so we can be jealous of the fabulous loot you scored! lol
