Happy New Year!!


I have some fabulous news to share with you today!! I  have been invited to join the Whiff of Joy Design Team as a Stamp Kit contributor. So excited!! It is going to be so much fun and I can't wait to receive the 2014 spring Kit of stamp designs!

Since I was "celebrating" at home yesterday with my little family (hubby pretty much always works New Years Day so we don't usually do much on New Year's Eve), I decided to get out this cute Henry Celebrating Mouse from Whiff of Joy and do some coloring while watching the New York Celebration. I cut him out using my cutterbee scissors.

This morning the neighbor kids showed up to play pretty early as usual, so no sleeping in. Decided to create a quick cute and simple card using the cute Henry mouse. 

Yellow designer paper is from my stash. The polka dot paper is actually washi tape which I got from Whimsy Stamps. Sentiment is from a clear set by Penny Black. I embellished with a simple button and some silver cord. 

 I would love to play along in a few challenges too:
A Little Bit Crafty - Celebrate
Animal Friends Challenge -  Punches and Dies
One Crazy Stamper -  Anything Goes
The Crafter's Cafe Challenge -Animal Friends
Crafty Sentiment Designs  Birthdays
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes.
Pile It On - P is about polka dots?        

Thanks so much for visiting! Stay warm everyone, and happy stamping!!

Product list:
Stamps: Whiff of Joy (Henry Celebration Mouse), Penny Black (sentiment)
Papers: from stash, washi tape (whimy stamps)
Embellishments: button, silver cord, glitter
