Basket, Sweet Sunday and Clear and Simple Sneak Peek

LOTS of stuff to share with you today!! It's the first of the month (WOW!! November already!?!? YIKES!) so that means it's time to start peeking the Clear and Simple stamps November sets for you. My project for today showcases one of the November releases, New Year, and it is so much fun!!
I incorporated this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch #42 by Karen for the matching card and used this month's Basket of Thanks Template by Sue Berker to create the little treat basket. The card's sentiment, the large "new year" on the basket handle and the little orange starburst thingies on some of the candies are from the New Year stamp set by Clear and Simple Stamps (releasing Nov 15). Here's a closer look at that adorable basket:
The DP is all printed digi paper from the Fighting Gravity digi kit by Scrapkitchen Designs and Melissa Bennett (Sweet Shoppe Designs). Here's a closer look at the card:

And here's a look at Karen's sketch for this week:Be sure to stop by the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers' blogs to see what they've done with the sketch:
And then be sure to play along, using the Mr. Linky on Karen's post to share your creation with all of us!!
