Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great New Year's Eve! I did! My hubby is actually away on a guy's trip right now and left on new year's eve! It's a bit sad to be without your partner on New Year's Eve but at the same it's important for men to be with other men. There going to sporting events, and my hubby will see his favorite NFL team on Sunday, the Vikings. Plus I got him to get me two new hero stamps while he is out there! So for New Year's Eve we had thought of doing more of a kiddie thing outside with fireworks and such but the weather was just too cold! So a friend hosted a party. We all brought along our children as there were enough rooms to put them to sleep in. Darling daughter didn't sleep though! That's what happens when you attempt to put two kids who take forever to fall asleep together! But she did sleep in! I had a lot of fun! And there was SUCH good food! Today I have to share the card set I made for Chad's grandmother as part of her Christmas gift. She is such a wonderful grandmother, she is 86 already! I sadly ran out of time and didn't make her a purse for her cards so I put them in one of my Christmas gift bags that I made! She loved them! Here are all four:

The pictures aren't the best. My Christmas tree is sitting in the window where I usually take the photos plus it was dreary when I took these! Here are close ups:




I went with the same colors and used flowers from my SU Die Blossom Party! I don't know if you can tell from the photos but I accented them with white pearls! I also pulled the silver brads frommy stash that I have forever! It's so much fun to make little card sets!
Products used: Su Blossom Party Die, Nesties Labels 1, Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Pearls, HA stamps, Bazill Paper, Brads.
All the best to you and your families this 2010!
