It's a New Year!

I've been a bit scarce around here, haven't I? We've had a wonderful Christmas season with both sides of the family coming to spend some time with us. My mom came for Christmas and Steve's parents came for New Years. I really do wish that we lived closer to our families, but it is such a nice treat when we have them with us for the holidays. With all the rush of Christmas and visitors, creating time has been non existent.

Hard to believe a new year has started. But with the kids back in school yesterday and the Christmas things all put away, I settled in my studio and just had fun.

The first card is for Kazan's sketch on 2 Sketches 4 You. It was fun to have some time to play this week.
The paper and label is from Basic Grey (Nook and Pantry), Flowers are from Prima (coral) and K & Co., pearls are from Prima, letter stickers are from My Little Shoe Box. Not sure who makes the ribbon.

The next batch of cards are just me having fun. Quick and easy and so much fun to make. I got a whole whack of paper for Christmas and it was fun to just pull out a page and go to it. Everything else is just using up old supplies.





Hope you've had a wonderful holiday and wishing you all the best in the coming year.
Here's an oldie for you...
Take care,
Ivanka
