Wishes For You 2011

Happy New Year!  Last night my 5 year old niece spent the night, and she fell asleep before midnight.  We went out on the porch and banged our pots and pans together at 12:00, but she slept blissfully on.  Ah, kids. 

While waiting for the new year to approach, I put together a couple of festive cards so I could play in some challenges.


I used new goodies here:  a glittered frame from K & Company, a $1.00 stamp from Michael's, and an embossing folder from Sizzix called Damask


Challenges entered:
Just for fun, I made a gold version of this card, but I don't like it as much, and it is not entering any challenges.  The balance and proportion are a bit off, but it's still a cute card, I think.


The gold ribbon is a Michael's half price find, but it unravels like crazy, so I won't be taking that one out to play too often.  It looks like a gold bracelet, doesn't it?

I wish you the happiest, healthiest, most prosperous New Year!  Thanks for joining me today.

Colleen

Stamps:  Michael's $1.00 bin

Great cards, Colleen! I just love that silver rick rack. And, I think your gold version is wonderful. I don't blame you about the ribbon that ravels so much...don't need problems when we are crafting, do we?
I went to bed (with my cold) early and watched three episodes of Criminal Minds and called it a night. Wow!!!! Aren't you jealous? LOL Glad you joined the Stampin B's this week with your celebratory card/cards.

I love both of these cards, Colleen. They sparkle so prettily!! You used those OTWC colors so nicely. I hope I have a chance to play along with that one, but it's going to be a busy week, so we'll see. I sure do love seeing bargain bin steals being put to use!! Warms my heart. :) Thanks so much for playing along with the Stampin' B's DT and our CELEBRATION challenge this week!!
