Couldn’t wait to wish you all a very Happy New Year

I am very excited to feature the Love is in the Air stamp set on this card. It’s one of the new Valentine stamp sets now available for order from the supplemental catalog. If you haven’t had a chance to check that out yet, you can find it again right here. I just love this little cityscape image and thought it was appropriate for New Year’s Day wishes after watching the ball drop in Time’s Square last night on TV…

For this card I chose a card base in seattle with latte and sky for the additional pieces. The ink color and ribbon are both titian from the 2012 Venetian color palette  and I used sparkle stickers to embellish. I love fonts, especially old typewriter fonts and often use them in my card designs. There are some cute sentiments for Valentine’s Day included in this set but none for New Year’s so I typed out my own sentiments for this one on my computer. The outside reads: “Happy New Year to You and those you Love” and the inside sentiment reads:  “Wishing you peace, prosperity, health and every happiness in the New Year”. That’s what I wish for all of you!

There is a lot to look forward to in 2013 here on Checkerberry Lane!!  I will have plenty to share in the coming weeks and months with new Spotlight products coming out later this week, Valentine cards and a few winter projects to share, then my trip to the A|S Annual Conference in early February, followed by a BRAND NEW CATALOG release! …and that’s just the first quarter of 2013!  {big smile}

Looking forward to lots of sharing…Thanks for being here with me.
