Happy New Year!

Happy 2015, everybody!  Did you stay awake 'til midnight to ring in the new year?  Or maybe you fall asleep well before then, as I sometimes do.  hee hee  Older I get, harder it is to make it past 9:30 or 10!

For the first time ever, I did not get any Christmas cards mailed out -- either store-bought or handmade.  Life was too full!  Luckily, mailing out New Year's cards IS a thing now, so I'm trendy.  :-)  I took inspiration from my friend Virginia, and mass-produced these as our New Year's cards:


I like Virginia's version much, much better...but I needed to make over 30 of these, so some of the pretty design elements had to go.  Ah well.  I am still pleased with how they came out.

Wishing you a fabulous new year, my friends!    



Paper: Night of Navy - SU; white glitter paper - Colorbok Accessories & Tools: turquoise glitter, Alpine & Himalayan snowflake punches - Martha Stewart; silver sequins; Snowflake punch - Stampin' Up!

It's currently minutes before midnight here, and I've had a quiet evening at home, just the way I like it. You did great getting 30 of these made, and so pretty, too! Love the navy background with the glittery border. I've been trying for days to get simply four of a kind done and can't seem to stick with it long enough each day to finish. Sheesh! Happy new year, Colleen!

Lovely card, Colleen. This was a nice design to mass produce, while keeping postage costs down.

More people in France send New Year cards than Christmas, so you'd be right on time over here.

A very Happy New Year to you and yours my talented friend!
