Bling in the New Year! Sparkle's Challenge #39

Happy Sunday! This week's theme at Sparkle's Christmas Card challenge blog is "Sparkle & Shine" - use bling on your card. This should be an easy one for lots of you! There are so many fun blingy products out there!

This happens to be another card I made at camp - quick and simple, but does the trick. I have made a lot of cards in my day, but do you know that this is the first time I had ever made a "Happy New Year" card!?! Even funnier, I don't even own this stamp set! lol My sister had ordered some sets from CTMH and I had brought them for her when we met at camp. I brought very little in the way of supplies with me and so it was fun to play with some of her new sets - things Little Sis!

I had a brain-wave while making this - wouldn't these be perfect to have on hand for those that somehow get forgotten with the rush of the holidays, or the one that the post-office returns because you wrote down and old address? I think I'll make a few and have them on the ready just in case, either way, it would be nice to bring one along to the New Year's Party hostess right? Ok Sis, I guess I have to borrow that set now! (Have you used it yet? lol)

Hope you are all having a great weekend! I am attending a Bridal Shower today while Chester and Pickle Pants attend a Birthday Party at Danderella's! The "fall cleaning" mode continues around here, so I am having a hard time finding my mojo - hoping it will be back soon, perhaps once some more organizing gets done....

What I used:
stamps: CTMH month set
paper: DCWV The Glitter Stack
ribbon: Fabricland


  1. This is fantastic! I've never made a New Years card either. I may have to be like you this year. :)

  2. Very nice card...I have to make a new year's card on my challenge. I was thinking of changing it to a congrats card...hmmmm...

  3. Very nice, love the colour combo! I don't remember making a New Years card, but what a great idea for those that get forgotten or lost in the mail!

  4. Stunnly elegant Banana! I adore this! Is the paper covered in bling or does it just look like it is? Do you send seperate Christmas and New Year cards In Canada then. We tend to combine two into one here.
    So what are yo puting in the packed lunches tomorrow.....?

  5. What a pretty card. I've been remiss in making comments lately, but I couldn't pass up on this one - it's stunning!


Thanks for visiting! I love to hear what you think of my work! :)
