Happy New Year!
It's nearly time to ring in the new year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and great times with family and friends! A new year brings thoughts about the previous one and thoughts of how the new one will be. I have to say that I had a good year. I know some new things are down the pike for me with church activities, so I can only hope and pray for the best! And, of course, card designing with the two design teams I design for gives me great pleasure! Stay tuned for something new with Paper Sweeties will be revealed very soon! I'm entering this card over at Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.
I made the above card for my son because he griped about not getting a handmade Christmas card sent to him. Oh, how could I do such a thing! Yes, I admit, I bought a store bought card for him...sigh...hehehe! So, I'd like to surprise him with this New Year's card.
The papers are from PTI, DCWV, and MFT. The envelope is from Heidi Swapp. And, the banner and numbers are from the Paper Sweeties stamp set Days Until.
Inside the envelope is a tag...
I used the stamp set Happy Everything. And, I used gold Wink of Stella around the happy sentiment, banner, and numbers. Dots from Doodlebug and twine Licorice from Paper Sweeties to finish off the card.
Well, that's it for now. If you have big plans for New Year's Eve, have fun and stay safe! We might go out for dinner and a movie. May the New Year bring you lots of joys and many blessings! Thanks so much for dropping by...take care!
