Hello Again!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Holiday Season and you are getting to spend some time with your family and friends. My husband had to work all weekend so I loaded my kiddos up and we drove to PA for Christmas, we stayed with my Dad & then my Grandparents. We have an annual Christmas Eve party that my family has been doing for a little over 20 years now and I haven't been back for it in about 15 years so it was nice. I also arranged a get together with some longtime friends from High School that I haven't seen in about 18 years so it was a great weekend!

This was the first time that my Grandparents had both of my kids visting along with my Brother's son so we had to take a photo! This was also the first time my Mother & Father  had all three of their grandkids together... So, I think it was a special weekend for everyone.

Now onto my stamping project which is why you stopped This week at Paper Lovin' Gals we have a great New Year inspired Photo for you.

I love the colors in this photo so that is where I went with my card... I used the Pennant punch along with the Pennant Parade Stamp set. I also found a Happy New Year Rub On in my stash. I thought I had a New Year stamp but do you think I could find it anywhere?

This is the first time I've used the stamp set with the Pennant Punch and I LOVE it!! It's so cute when it's all put together... I started with a Crumb Cake card base and then I added a piece of Pacific Point after trimming off about an 1" from the bottom where I added my rub on. For the numbers I used the Sizzix set GoGo Boots and I cut them out in the colors, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Wisteria Wonder & Regal Rose . Then I cut some out in Basic Black and offset them to give a shadow effect and bring in some of the Black from the photo.

I added some glitter glue to the letters and the stars under the Happy New Year to add a bit of sparkle! The ribbon is Wisteria Wonder and I added a Glitter Brad in Tempting Turquoise. Make sure to head over to the Paper Lovin' Gals blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week and we hope you will play along with us. I'll see you back here tomorrow!
