Happy New Year!

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I know it is a couple of days before we celebrate the coming of the  New Year. We have been invited to our future in-laws to for a small party that should be fun we all get on well. There is even talk of hiring a big house altogether next year for Christmas.

This is a card I made for the Reader's Design Team for issue 160 of Quick Cards Made Easy Magazine. My card wasn't one of the main ones featured in the magazine but it was featured as a small thumbnail with my name down the side.

I used lots of elements from the bonus papers to make this card. I also matted the layers with matt black card and gold mirror card. 

I used my Hougie board to  create some rosettes. 

I used some of the sentiments on this card. 

I like the small image of the champagne glasses. 

I must admit that I am looking forward to next year. I have about 6 months to get all the things I need to make for the wedding made. I am cutting back on a few things to make this possible. Of course I need to think about an outfit as well and my husband will need a new suit. 

I hope that you have a great start to the New Year. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
