Challenge #171

Good Morning everyone and a Happy New Year to you all.  It's Wynn here from sunny Cyprus and it's my honour to start off the 2015 challenges.

I have chosen Words to Inspire. At this time of the year many words are spoken of love and encouragement for a better year ahead. It was with this in mind that I chose the theme. You will see below that the design team have created some fabulous cards with some very thought provoking words to inspire you. I look forward to visiting your blogs and reading your inspiring words.
