Happy New Year and Another Sneak Peek
Maybe my card should say Happy New Year instead of Happy Anniversary? Hey, I don't have a Happy New Year stamp...at least the word "happy" is in the sentiment, right? This is another lovely Sweet 'n Sassy set (ahh, floral stamps...my favorite!) that will be released on January 7! (The sentiment is from another SNSS set that will also be released in January) This beautiful carnation stamp also comes along with the word "January"....Humm....I wonder what else Korin has up her sleeve for the January release...Be sure to keep checking back in for more peeks...and more ideas on how to use the new sets! The carnations were colored with Copics and I cut out just the flower portion and attached with dimensional tape for a little pop. And thanks for my new light tent you can actually see that dimension! Have I mentioned that I love my new light tent? :-) And I "stole" this ribbon idea from a card that Julie posted a few days ago. Hi Jules...love your bow! hee hee The ribbon was off-white but I created ribbon to match my carnation and paper by coloring the it with Copics. I also saw a best of 2009 challenge posted on Kelly Rae's blog and thought I'd play along. Best challenge: Hands down...Raising two children will always be the hardest and best challenge ever! Best album: Egads...I don't think I can answer this question since I haven't purchased a new album (or CD) in years! With the exception of some kid's songs...LOL! My husband's new fav is some new John Mayer DVD, which I bought him for Christmas! :-) Best place: Bed! There is nothing like hitting the hay after a long day of breaking up arguments between brothers, making meals, homeschooling, playing with Hot Wheels, building Lincoln Log homes, housecleaning, stamping...You get the picture! I love my bed! Best new food: Humm...This isn't really a new food but it would be the best of this food I have ever eaten. Sushi from Yama Zakura. I kid you not, you have never eaten sushi until you've eaten it at Yama Zakura....This is the most amazing food I have ever had...My mouth is watering just thinking about it... Best change to our home: The addition of curtains to our living room windows...after being bare for the past six months! (Now to paint the walls!) Oh, and the addition of my new craft table to my wee little craft room! Best tea: Sorry kids, Kim doesn't do tea! The best coffee I've ever had is Peet's. Love it! Best word or phrase: Change and hope...That comment would be dripping with sarcasm. :-) Fave new person: How about persons? All of the wonderful people and designers that I've had the privilege to meet this year at either Summer CHA or at the Stamping Around events! I love the crafting world, it is primarily comprised of the most amazing women (and men...Hi Tim!) Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed New Year!
