So long 2011, welcome 2012!!!

So who is looking forward to 2012? I am!  I cannot wait to see what the New Year has in store for me! One good thing will be participating in one more term at Cardabilities!  You must come back and see the new ladies that will be joining us!

So here is the last sketch reveal from Cardabilities in 2011:

Here is my take:

October Afternoon Papers
Recollection Kraft Cardstock 
Spellbinders - Lacey Circles, Circles, and Pendants
Fiskars Border Punch
Lily Bee design Alpha Stickers
Ribbon and Button from stash

I have not made many shaped cards before, so this is a challenge for me. I started with a folded cardstock and placed the diecut on the edge of the fold. Diecuts were also used for the circle and the pendant.  I cut patterned paper into strips and punched the borders with the scallop edge.  And adhered on top of each other to form the ruffles. Using a large glue dot, I used a ribbon to form the flower and placing the button in center. 

I have a list of things I am going to (hoping to) be changing for the new year!  Organzing many things in my life.  People talk about spring cleaning...I alsways have New Years cleaning. I like to start of fresh!  Along with my house, I hope to change some things here on my blog. Problem is I'm not computer savvy enough to do it quickly, so it may take awhile to do so...but I WILL have it done by 2013 :)

Happy New Year everyone! Party like it's 2012, just do it safely!
