New Years Eve



So what are you all doing tonight for New Years Eve? DH and I will probably start watching a DVD, fall asleep about 10:00, wake just before 11:00, and decide that it's bedtime. Woohoo! When the kids were little, we used to make 7-Up and orange juice "mimosas", put them in wine glasses, and I'd make special treats, then we played board games all night long. It was one of the few nights when the kids would beg to go to bed! "But I'm tired mom!" Good memories, those....

As for most of today, I plan to spend it in my craft room only taking time to make some dinner. Don't know if I'll post more cards, but I'm gonna try to get a bunch done today. Starting Wednesday, I will be putting in long hours at the museum for all of January, and may not have much time all month to create or post. I'll be checking in and will try to leave comments, but working full time + hours when I'm used to very part time will not be easy for me.

I started out my morning with the sketch from Unscripted Sketches 191. When I first looked at the sketch, I couldn't come up with anything. Then I saw Anita's entry there, and Ardyth's most recent cards, and voila!, ideas flew round and round my brain. Went back to US191, and my little fingers flew...! First, check out the sketch:

And this is my take on it:


Now, the navy looks a little black here, but trust me, it is navy. And yellow. Sigh. I love blues and yellows together. And the deets are: White, navy, and yellow Bazzill cardstock, TAWS stamp from the Awesome Blossom set, a scrap of yellow polka dot paper from Paper Studio, a button that I think is from Doodlebug, a smidge of cobalt twin from KFD for Scrapper's Spools, a few strips of white ric-rack, some mighty cute daisies from I only wish I knew where, and Spice Tin ink from Jenni Bowlin for Ranger. Happy dances everyone, and Happier New Year to you!

Happy New Year's to you! I too spent most of my day in my craft room, cleaning and weeding, a great feeling and a fabulous way to start off the new year. Your card is too cute, I love yellow and navy together!

Happy New Year Bev! I love the navy/yellow/white combo - so clean & crisp. Almost makes me want to sail away to some tropical island and tie sailor knots while I'm sitting on the beach!

Your card is stunning! Such great details - like the bit of twine/ric rac/button - fabulous combo of sweetness! Of course, I LOVE the polka dot paper and those daisies are divine!

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful card with us at Unscripted Sketches :)
