Happy New Year from JIC!

Hi everyone and happy New Year!
I'm so excited to announce JIC has gone through some changes and is going into 2014 better than ever. Fantastic sponsors have been lined up including Dilly Beans, The Paper Shelter, Sassy Studio Designs, Kenny K, and MANY more.  Check out the full list here, there are sure to be some new artists you've never seen!
January's monthly challenge at Just Inspirational Challenges is about New Beginnings.  It can be however you interpret it - new job, new family, new resolution.

This month's sponsor is Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the prize is a $10 gift certificate to the shop, located here.

I decided to use the Saturated Canary image Cinders.  What better story of new beginnings than Cinderella starting her new life....and considering it all happened at the stroke of midnight I thought a New Year card fit the theme perfectly.
