New Year's Challenge!

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone! Yes! I'm BACK again!!! Well at least I'm back
to continue doing my other favorite thing.... Cricut Cardz Challenges!!!!  I've really missed taking part in these Challenge's Mary offers.... Soooo today's Challenge over at
Cricut Cardz Challenge 
is to make a "Happy New Year" card using any cartridges and colors you'd like!
How great is that?
Of course I will confess to all of you that this was very difficult for me to do! I don't make
New Year's cards... EVER! Soooo this took some thinking and I'm still not happy with
how my card came out... Maybe it's from the lack of challenges and cards I've made
in recent months.... I promise my creativity will come back, it's just running a little slow!
Sooo.... Here's the not so great card I made for today's Challenge! :o)


See.... It's really not my favorite card... Kind of plain really....
I just think my brain was thinking about something else
while I tried to make this card! So Sorry! :o) I think it will
get better! Or at least I hope so! :o) Here's the specks:

Card stock - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Bo Bunny double Dot
Cartridges - Celebration (Celebrate) I used the Card
feature on the cartridge and cut it out @ 5"
Life's a Party (Guitar) Cut @ 3 3/4"
Lyrical Letters (2012) Jumbo Cut @ 1"
Assorted Stickles
White Dye Ink

I guess I thought everything needed to sparkle for the NEW YEAR!
Soooo that's pretty much what I did! After all the cuts and the placement
on the card, I pulled out my stickles and glittered it up.... I still
think it looks plain, it's just the way it goes sometimes!
Well, now that you've seen my card.... How about
you make a great New Year's card and I can stop by and check it out!
Head on over to Cricut Cardz and link your creation up! Don't forget
to stop by the design teams blogs... They made some
wonderful creations to get your creativity flowing!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have an AWESOME DAY!!
