Happy New Year 2012
Happy New Year - hope 2012 is filled with health and happiness for all of you. I hve spent the day playing with paper and just relaxing - work is going to get crazy so I need to enjoy these quiet days at home.
I wanted to send some New Year cards to a couple people so when Melonheadz Illustrating posted this cute baby New Year - I could not resist using it. I had this great number paper from Authentique that I thought would add to a new year card. Why oh why did I not buy a 12 x 12 sheet of this paper - maybe because I never saw it in 12 x 12. The first card is based on the sketch at Authentique Papers blog. I had this embossing folder of clocks and for a new year card it seemed appropirate and adds a little extra texture.
The other card is using up all the different pieces I had of this particular grouping of paper. Did you know that there is a certain color of ORANGE that is the color for 2012.
I added a couple stickers from SRM - it is from a birthday sticker sheet but I think Celebrate works for a new year's card. I did add some sparkle to the baby's hat and flag and also the numbers on the first card.
Enjoy the remainder of today - and hopefully everyone cheers on the Wisconsin Badgers tomorrow in the Rose Bowl.
