Happy New Year

We've had a wonderful Christmas, it went by so fast that it all seems a blur now.
Christmas morning...

.....we've been so happy to have my mom visiting us for the holidays.

And I even managed to make a couple New Years cards...

Stickers are from SRM, embossing folders are from Stampin' UP! (elegant lines) and Cuttlebug (Swirls).

And here is a card using stamps from Clear and Simple Stamps...a wonderful Christmas gift as I won this set on their Facebook page.

Embossing folder is from Cuttlebug, I stamped all over the front with a Palette (Stewart Superior) stamp and stick gluepad, heated it till tacky and then applied Art Glitter (Barbara Trombley).  Although I've had the glue pad and glitter for a while, this is the first time I've done this technique.  So this is perfect for  The Kraft Journal challenge to try something new.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed it with Detail White embossing powder from Stampendous.

I'm entering these in Create Blog challenge to make New Years cards and ColourQ's #117 challenge to use black and white and one more colour.

So Happy New Year 2012!  Wishing you and your family all good things in the New Year.
Off I go to spend time with my mom before she leaves.
