Happy New Year's Eve to all! Certainly I'm not the only one scratching my head wondering where 2012 has gone?! Any big plans? We're just enjoying a relaxing evening at home. Doesn't get much better than that in my opinion :)

Today I have a few projects to share using some pretty chipboard pieces from Blue Fern Studios. First up is a layout featuring a photo of Meredith that was taken while riding at her most recent Dressage competition last month.  
I applied embossing enamel to two gorgeous Organic Vine Corner - Large chipboard pieces then layered on a few blossoms from my stash.
Up close you can really see how intricate these pieces are:
I also made a Thank You card featuring a pretty butterfly from the Brigitte Butterfly Set. The sentiment is from MFT / Die-namics Umbrella Sentiments Stamp Set.
I applied enamel to the beautiful butterfly then layered it on a die doily made using a Die-namics Dainty Doily DUO die.
For the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with Freshly Made Sketches:
In the layout, I used beautiful Blue Fern Studios Organic Vine Corner - Large x 2
and featured on the card is one of the pretty butterflies from Blue Fern Studios Brigitte Butterfly Set
Thank you so much for visiting! I hope you all have a safe and fun New Year's celebration!
Be Sweet ;)

You have a very brave girl! When I was that age, I finally got to ride on my first horse. Ha! It was a very short lived experience because once I got up in the saddle, I looked down...way down, and discovered I had an extreme fear of heights. I'm not even sure we walked 3 feet before I panicked and was bailing off it. Now, what's funnier, is that I asked my dad for years up to that point for a horse. Perhaps, dad really did know best. ;) Beautiful projects!
