Happy New Year ~ PTI December Blog Hop

happynewyearmaureenplut

Good morning!  It’s Boxing Day here in Canada so I am avoiding the stores and enjoying a peaceful morning with our house guests.  I’m also going to enjoy the Papertrey Ink December Blog Hop later today :)  We are asked to make a mostly white card so I threw down some shimmer paper, dug out a doily and looked through my embossing folders.  I knew I wanted to make a Happy New Year’s card for someone special so added some silver embossing and some sweet silver jingle bells (nope, not done with them quite yet!).  When a card is super shimmery, I turn off one of my light box lights to tame the glare.  However, I thought it’d be fun to see the full shine of this card as the banners are die cut from shimmer pattern paper.

Thanks so much for visiting and hope your Christmas was wonderful.  We survived hosting the 30+ sit down dinner with lots of laughter, noise, great food and wine!  Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of the hop!

Oh my goodness...the shimmer on these is jaw dropping Maureen. I am in love...and I understand why you can't put the jingle bells away. I can't put away the Verve snowflakes (look for them on Saturday).

Enjoy the quiet morning..taking a quick break for lunch! xoxo
