Happy New Year!

OK...technically I'm a day late, but I, along with George, would like to wish everyone a very happy, healthy and creative New Year!

Here's a card I created using the Big Bold Birthday set along with the Holidays & Wishes set. I used my markers to add the curled ribbon steamers and triangular confetti. I think this turned out nice and festive!

Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Pumpkin Pie, Certainly Celery, Tempting Turquoise & Black Stazon
Card stock: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black & Whisper White
Accessories: Small Oval Punch, Pomegranate Double stitched ribbon, Celery, Pumpkin & Turquoise Grosgrain & brads

You've already seen the magnetic calendars I made with the coasters shown here, but I thought I would share how I wrapped them to give away on New Years Eve. I just stamped a large cello bag with White Stazon added a little bit on iridescent shreds, tied with some curling ribbon and a Happy New Year tag. They really liked them.
We got a LOT of snow here to start out the new year! I'm hoping to get out there and take some photos at some point today. Probably in between putting away Chrsitmas decorations. Whatever you end up doing today...enjoy!

Ahhh...Mr. Clooney...*sigh*. Oh wait, there are other things in this post! I do love what you did with the balloons and those calendars are great. I meant to get some made this year, but didn't quite get to it.
