Cheers to a Happy New Year!!!




Gosh, I've really taken a vacation from posting! It's been wonderful to spend time with family though. We were back in Canada with family over Christmas and managed to get in three days of skiing so that was a nice bonus! I can't say I love winter but it sure is much more fun if you embrace it and get involved in winter sports. On that note, we're off to the Winter Classic hockey game at Fenway on New Year's Day. I'm SO excited about that...gonna wear my warmest down parka.  :)

Tonight though I'm behaving like Winobella (and I'm dressed exactly like her...wink!) enjoying some fab wine with appies and dinner. I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch, MTSC54, for the layout. I dug deep into my stash of Basic Grey 6x6 pads again for this card...these papers are from Lily Kate. It doesn't show in the photo but I added clear Glaze pen to the glasses and the bottle.

I have a funny story about this card. I was on the phone with Dana and it's been about a week since we last chatted. I said something about my Winobella image for the card I'm posting and she said she was also using Winobella. Then I told her I was using Mercy's sketch and she is too! Then she told me she was using purple and green, and I had purple and green out too, but then I switched the green to Kraft instead. We consulted on the border punches though so those shouldn't be the same. Weird, eh! Talk about being on the same wave length!!!! LOL! I can't wait to see how her card turns out!

Whatever you're doing tonight, have a safe and happy New Year and all the best in 2010!


Thanks for stopping by!
Karen
