Happy New Year!!

happynewyear

Well, here we are…the last day of the year.  I’m not a real big fan of “New Years.”  I don’t like all the hype, overpriced dinners and resolution making as I try to change things about myself as need be, not just because it is a new year.  PLUS, being a teacher, my New Years is July 1st, the first day of summer vacation and Canada Day!! LOL  So when people ask, what’s your resolution this year, I always say, “This above all, to thine own self be true.”  I love that quote and have it up in my kitchen :)  Do what I know is right and true and if I do something wrong, make it right.  Golden rule stuff.  Today’s card was so fun to make.  I used this week’s Card Patterns sketch along with some more of that Mind’s Eye glitter paper Melisa gave me :)  I also inked up the branches and Happy New Year sentiment from Verve’s Merry Wishes.  This is the only New Years card I’ve made (I make Christmas cards to send out), but I have a special friend in mind who will love this :)  AND because even our local mail has been excruciatingly slow these past few weeks, I will hand deliver it!! LOL  One thing I do like about New Years, though, is all the hugging, so I will wish you all a Happy New Years with a big hug!! :D  I do think it will be an exciting year!!  PS…like these stamps?  Today is the last day of the VERVE Good Buy sale…see my sidebar for the link and savings code!!).

Love the colour combo and the stamp image fits the DP perfectly :)

I'm with you re: New Years. Much prefer a quiet night reflecting on the past year and going to be early LOL! I"m definitely showing my age. Enjoy your evening hugging Tony and looking forward to seeing more of your wonderful creations in 2011. Blessings and a Happy New Year (((hug))) to you :)

My new year starts on Sept 1st for me (When our academic year starts!) so really we get two celebrations a year ;D
Still, wishing yourself and your loved ones a Happy New Year! Here's to many more fabulous creations like this one in 2011 - Cheers!
Hugs,
