happy new year!

Stopping in with a quick CAS card just in time for the New Year.  I have been seeing Laura Bassen's gorgeous masked blending cards, so I thought I would give it a try with some Delicata Gold ink.  I wish I could capture the shimmer on this card.  It is so pretty in real life!


I masked of the top corner and then stamped this sentiment from Reverse Confetti's Bring on the Merry.  I won't bore you with my love of ampersands, so I will just say there was no way I could mask it off.  I have started collecting them in large sizes here at home.  I have no idea why I love them so much....and I said I wouldn't go into it!  lol!  For the rest of the card, I used an "*" from the set called Lighthearted Letters.  I added in a little arrow image from RC's All About you.  And last, I added in some silver sequin stars for a little more bling.  


I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas!  I got to spend it with both of my sisters.  I am so happy that we could actually be in the same place at the same time.  Lots of miles between us the rest of the year, so its been a fun and busy week.  We spent a couple days on the Plaza in Kansas City too!  I wish we had more time for the holidays, but its good to get back to normal and the tree is going down today.  Oh and LOTS of laundry too!

Here is a quick list of the supplies I used in today's card....

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  And thank you for hanging out with me for another year!  I am almost to 8 years of blogging and I can't believe that!  I am so thankful for all of my blogging friends.  I have said it before but the friendships are my most favorite part of this hobby!  

Happy New Year!
