Happy New Year!



I Hope all of you had a fabulous and *SAFE* New Year's Eve! My poor daughter ended up throwing up on the doorstep of the party we were attending. We ate dinner, played Guitar Hero World Tour and she kept saying she felt sick...I should have listened and gotten her home sooner. Thank goodness I got her coat on and out the door before it happened! Ugh! What a way for her to start 2009. At least she is 5 and probably wont remember! On to happier thoughts....
I headed home with her and left my DH and son at the party, so I decided to do a little New Years stamping. I decided to use on of my favorite stamp sets, Baroque Motifs. Sometimes I *over do* it with a stamp set and then it gets neglected. This happens to be one of those sets. While I was attempting to organize my stamps, it ended up on top of one of the stacks, so I decided to use it. I thought I would stamp it in the colors that are in the Raspberry Tart DSP. My goal for 2009 is to actually use up paper while it is still current. I think that has been my goal for a few years, but maybe this year it will actually happen! LOL! I added a few clear gem stickers to the flower centers to give it some sparkle. I also used some of my scrumptious silk ribbon that I got from Cindy Lyle's store. I *think* this is the link http://www.starlitstudios.net/ . She has some *amazing* stuff in her store. I purchased some stuff earlier this month and I am ready to put in another order to get more!!!


I sponged all of the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink to give it an aged look. I punched the sentiment using my small oval punch and then matting it with the other oval punch. I attached it to the silk ribbon with some silver elastic cord from SU!

Again, Happy New Year and thanks for fluttering by!

Very pretty. I got this set but haven't had one minute to use it. I guess I was too busy making Christmas cards and never thought of it. Oh well!

Oh yeah, about the new shelves. Forget getting organized. It changes each time you think you have it licked. It's like jello, hard to get hold of! LOL

Beautiful! This is one of my favorite sets, too, but I haven't used it in ages...time to get it out! Thanks for the inspiration.

Hopefully your daughter is better today - at least she made it outside!

Happy New Year!

Very nice card, I know I had to have that set and it is sitting getting neglected. I see I will have to get some Raspberry Tart DP as I has seen many wonderful ideas with it!

This is a beautiful card - the way you placed all the flowers is perfect. And great job with the new paper - I'm struggling to like it!
