Happy New Year

Happy New Year to those of you who are in the Southern Hemisphere, to those of you who are not into the New Year yet - let me tell you - it is looking good!!

Today I wanted to share two cards I have made using images from "priscillastyles" Store - just to start warming you up for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge which is happening on this week - I am so-o-o ready for it!!

This image - Happy New Year -  is perfect for celebrating not just New Year but any occasion.  I have coloured it with SU Chalks and  added the shimmer with Kindy Glitz - you know I love that stuff! LOL

How cute is this image - Love Birds - it is perfect for occasions such as Valentines Day, Anniversaries, Weddings....

I have coloured with SU Chalks and a Blender Pen, adding that fabulous shimmer which shows up a little bit in this photo.

These flowers are from Wild Orchid and the leaves from the Martha Stewart 'Branches punch.  These are all part of a fabulous RAK from my friend and Design Team sister Gunn - thanks Gunn, I am savouring them!

These cards are for the following challenges:
Woodware USA - Anything Goes
Prairie fairy Fridays - New Beginnings
Sew Many Cards - New Things
Stamp Something - Bling It Up
Totally Papercraft - Time to Party
Stamp Insanity - Sparkle
Stampin' B -Celebration
Paper Pretties - Ring in the New Year
Pixie Cottage - Party/Celebration
Simon Says Stamp - Time to Party/Celebrate
Anything Goes - The Letter 'C' - Celebration

The Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge has announced it's New Design Team for 2011 along with the Priscilla Styles Design Team - there is plenty happening in 2011 with these ladies as well - always something new and exciting from Priscilla and her Teams

I hope you saw 2010 out in style - we had a family night at home and watched the most amazing fireworks show in Sydney Harbour - having been in there one year, we favour the safety of our lounge room!  LOL.  Most years we countdown and see the new year in this one was no exception - I look forward to seeing what is ahead for us all!

Happy New Year!!
