Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had wonderful holidays. I know we sure had fun. We spent Christmas at Katie's house in SC. We had a really, really fun time playing with the boys and just spending time with the family....but it snowed!

We were supposed to being going south away from the cold weather, but what fun we had playing in the snow the day after Christmas.

But my real reason for this post is to play along with the Makeup 4 the Weekend challenge! The challenge is to make a card using black, white, and silver. I like how it turned out, but as usual, my photo skills aren't the best. All of the stars are the same shiny silver, honest. They are silver star brads that I still have from the Celestial Possibilities makeup kit and I was so excited to discover I still had them when working on this card. It's a white card base, black cardstock and silver glitter paper for the backing of the sentiment. The wide white organdy ribbon and the white satin ribbon were from my ribbon stash. The silver snowflake is Favorite Findings. The sentiment is from the Purpose of Friendship set.

The January release party for Paper Makeup is this Friday night at 9 EST and there are lots of fun new stamps being previewed this week. Hope to see lots of my cyber friends on Friday night!

  1. Sounds like you had a nice time over the holidays!! I wish my mom was within driving distance :0( She's in California so getting together is usually only about once a year - if that. I really miss her and my sister around the holidays. Your card is gorgeous!! Love all of the sparkle. Happy New Year Carma!!
