Happy New Year! 35

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 1, 2011 @ 12:21 AM | ,

Hi there! Here today to wish all of you a very Happy New Year and to thank you for so many sweet comments and words of encouragement throughout 2010 :) I sure hope I am able to continue to inspire you for another year! CHEERS to 2011! I will be spending the evening with my hubby and sweet sister Tina enjoying a yummy dinner at one of my favorite restaurants. Here's my first card of 2011:
I made a banner by combining S4-295 Lacey Squares and S4-126 Classic Squares LG die templates. After cutting/embossing each square & Lacey square, I cut each of them in 1/2 then layered & adhered together then using Victorian Alphabet to stamp 2011.
We will be spending the first day of 2011 going for a hike up the mountain nearby then hanging out at home, Scott will be enjoying football and Tina & I will be crafting :) It has been a bit chilly here in AZ so, I am going to make a big pot of chili both with meat and Vegan style for my son & his girlfriend who will be joining us for dinner. Would love to know how you spent the evening ringing in the New Year & how will be spending the 1st day of 2011? Whatever you do, I hope you have a great time :) Be Sweet!

I will be back tomorrow to share the winner of my little give away (HERE) and to share some exciting news :) Until then...

What a fun card, Mona!! The colors are so cheery and the music looks terrific. Sounds like you had a fun ringing in the New Year! We had our very own {early} ball drop at home with our kids and spent the evening watching movies, playing games, and toasting with sparkling cider. Fun!
