~ Happy New Year ~

Today on SCS  Dawn challenged us to make a card depicting one of our New Years resolutions! This one depicts two. One is to send more birthday cards and one is to be more thankful for my blessings!


The Rubbernecker's sentiment was stamped and then cut out using a Spellbinder's diecut and the fabulous Spellbinder's Grand Calibur diecut machine. The Grand Calibur is a dream to use. It is so, so easy to use and cuts and embosses like a dream. There is no guessing about which plates to use, they are all marked. The flower was made using a McGill flower and leaf punches. The lovely dp is Websters Pages. 

Our New Years tradition is to have blackeyed peas, turnip greens and cornbread on New Years day. What do you usually have on New Years day?

I wish you blessings, health and happiness in the New Year.

Thanks for stopping by! Hugs!

what a beauty...love your paper rose.....and the dazzle of the flourish, but most of all, I LOVE the sentiment...so very true

New Year's Day is a day of relaxation for me. No real tradition.....just a day to play.

What a gorgeous creation, Francie! I got a Big Shot for Christmas, but it sounds like I should've asked for a Grand Calibur! LOL! We don't have any kind of traditional meal on New Year's Day; we're just thankful to see a new year!!! Happy New Year to you, sweet friend.

Wowzers, Fran, this is stunning! Gorgeous paper, and love that flower you made! My mom always fixed sauerkraut and hot dogs, but after I got married that tradition stopped. DH doesn't like sauerkraut. :-)
