HAPPY NEW YEAR!! My wish for the New Year is that it’s great for all of us! I hope that you all had a fun and safe New Year’s Eve. I had a nice low key one. No, I did not move at work again yesterday, I’m over it! LOL! Maybe Monday? I came home and my brother, Erika and little Daniel were at my parent’s. One of their little Dachshunds passed away the night before in the car on the way to the vet. Poor little Nick. They came over to bury him in the backyard. After that the six of us went to Friday’s for dinner. I was surprised at all of the large groups of people that were there having dinner. I guess a lot of families decided to have a low key, fun New Year’s Eve. After dinner we went back to my parents and I chased Daniel around for a bit. Sometimes his little legs move faster than the rest of him! They left around 7:30 and I came home and decided that I would put the new wall unit together and switch them out. The main part didn’t take but 20 minutes, the door and drawer inserts took the longest. I did manage to get everything switched and I love the way it looks now. After that was done it was time for a glass of Cupcake Red Velvet wine and some Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. I text a bunch of my peeps to wish them Happy New Year and then finally went to bed around 2:00, hence my lateness this morning! A different way for me to ring in the New Year but not a bad way at all!
My first card for this year is for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge…
Now that the Holiday’s are officially over it’s time to start thinking about Valentine’s Day! There are a few really fun new sets in the 2015 Occasions Catalog along with some really great Designer Series Paper so that’s what I used for my card! It begins with a base of Calypso Coral Card Stock and the background is a piece of Real Red. The two flags are paper from the Stacked with Love DSP Stack*, I used a Simon Says Stamp die to create the stitching down the sides on the flagged pieces and also on the piece of Crisp Cantaloupe that goes across the top. My greeting is from the You Plus Me Stamp Set* and is heat embossed in Calypso Coral on Whisper White and cut out with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles Dies. Some Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere it to the card. A little Red Glimmer Paper heart, cut out with one of the dies from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits*, I adhered to the greeting with a piece of Stampin’ Dimensional and completes the card. I really like the colors in the Stacked with Love DSP and the You Plus Me Stamp Set has some cool graphic style images! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Mojo Monday sketch challenge! It’s the first post of the new year, one of 365! Thank you so much for stopping by to see me and I hope that today is the start of the best year ever for all of us!! 🙂
