Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! 2012 was such a great year for me that I hated to see it come to an end. I hope 2013 is just as good. Most importantly, I hope that my family & I continue to be healthy. I believe good health is one of the "riches" of the world.
I have neglected my blog for well over a month. The hustle & bustle of the holidays left me too tired to keep my blog going. During that time, I made tons of Christmas cards (over 45) Christmas hair bows, tags, party poppers and even some birthday cards. Some I photographed, others I forgot to in the haste of mailing them out.  All in all Christmas was wonderful this year. Perhaps next year I won't get as far behind with my Christmas cards as I did this year.

I think I went through tons of Ocean Tide and Rustic White card stock. The majority of my cards used the PTI stamp sets:  Star of Wonder, and Nativity Silhouettes Additions.  Here's a sample of two of them.
I used Soft Stone ink on this card. Because it was barely visible, I switched to London Fog on the other cards I made.  The 2nd card uses the Sunrise IP. It is one of my favorite IP but adhering this one is very tricky as I always manage to have a bubble along some part of the edge.

Here's wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

Love the Ocean Tides! It was one of my first purchased inks. Any plans for Valentine hair bows? Would love to see them. Happy New Year!

Carol, I can sure relate to your blog post today. I had so many projects on my "To-Do" list that my blog was relegated to last place. Glad to hear that you had a great year and a fun holiday season. I love how you used the Sunshine IP ... it really highlights the sentiment. Happy New Year and a wish for great days in 2013!!
