One Stitch at a Time Challenge 228

This week at One Stitch at a Time the challenge is ... Anything Goes with something New! So, it can be a new bit of crafty goodness, or follow the theme of something new.

Our sponsor for this challenge is:

See the challenge blog for details.

For this challenge, I chose an image from the selection by Ken Benner Designs called Cartoon Bear Holding a Sign. I added some wording on the sign in Photoshop Elements and coloured the result with Promarkers.

I made it for my younger son should, by the time this is posted, have been in his new job for a whole week! He finished a degree in French and German at the summer, and followed that with a course in teaching English as a foreign language. Then, he and his girlfriend started job hunting. Late last year his girlfriend landed a job in Berlin, so they moved there, and after some more searching, he found a job there too, learning about marketing while using his three languages which is what he wanted to do. Since it was for my son, I've kept the design plain. The men in my family are universally of the opinion that embellishment is unnecessary frippery! So, we have a plain card with paper and a die cut from the Papermania Persimmon collection.

I hope you can join us this time.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Aud Sentiments where they want the word 'new',
Sister Act where anything goes,
Stempelsonne where anything goes,
Crafty Calendar where they want to know, 'What's New?',
Quirky Crafts where they want 'clean and simple.
