I'd like to wish all my blogging friends a
Happy New Year
and share with you the one and only New Year card I have made for 2009 .... unless the weather deteriorates further we're hoping to go to a New Year party tonight, so this card is for the hostess and her family. The pic doesn't show up very well, but the message inside the (very wonky!!) star is "Let's celebrate!"
I made this card in line with the sketch over at Stamp Something Challenge, which I have rotated by 90% to the left. I would also like to enter this card into 3 New Year Challenges that are around at the moment ... namely Everybody-Art-Challenge #20, Lili of the Valley Challenge #12, and A Spoon Full of Sugar #29. Last but not least, this is one of my first two purchases of FF stamps, so I would like to enter it into the current Forever Friends Challenge, which is an open theme.
I used: Forever Friends stamp coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura sparkle pen (green), and decorated with holographic circle peel offs for the bubbles; background papers by FF (dotty) and Disney (sparkly stars); sentiment is from the "Celebration Messages" See-D; numbers are cut from holographic card using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet.
