Happy New Year!

Happy 2012!! It's a new year and hope you are off to a fantastic start! =)


I used the adorable Ben and Nora - New Year Couple from Whiff of Joy Stamps for my card. They look so cute together and so full of joy! =)


The image is stamped on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then cut and embossed using a Classic Squares Large die. The sentiment piece is cut and embossed using a Petite Ovals Large die.


The patterned paper is from Random 6x6 Pad by Crate Paper. I used the beautiful High Tea Party Doily die from My Favorite Things on the pink paper. The sentiment is from Find Joy set by Hero Arts.

Thank you so very much for all the support and sweet comments for the past year. They mean so much to me and are the main motivation that keeps me going and I can't thank you enough for that. =) Hope you all have a prosperous year to come, my friends! =)



Have a fabulous one and thanks for stopping by!
