Happy New Year!

Sorry about the poor quality of this photo. This card is a lot cuter in real life, but since it's stamped on acetate, it's really difficult to photograph. There were a few friends that I had planned to send Christmas cards to, but ran out of time, so I figured I'd send them a New Years card instead.

I used White Stazon to stamp the background of snowflakes using the Snow Swirled set. I thought Mr. Penguin from the Punch Pals set would look like he was going out to celebrate in style with a top hat borrowed from Mr. Snowman. So, with the help of my Stamp-a-ma-jig and some masking I added the hat. Card stock colors: Pacific Point, Basic Black, Brushed Silver & Whisper White.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It's been a while since I posted...I've been taking it easy and enjoying some of my new Christmas goodies. Actually, this is what has been taking all my time...

I got hooked on the HBO series about vampires called True Blood, so I thought I'd like to read the series of books the show is based on. They're really good! I'm so addicted that I'm already on the 5th book! They are a more adult version of the Twilight books. If you like the show, you'll love the books!

I also got the Aerosmith Guitar Hero for Wii. I'm not a video game player, but I LOVE Aerosmith. My BIL & SIL were here at Christmas and were shocked that I didn't have the game so they surprised me with it. Wasn't that sweet?! I thought that was so nice of them! I had to have the boys show me how to play it...I'll tell you is really difficult! I still haven't made it through an entire song yet. A feel like such a pathetic loser to have my guitar hero - Joe Perry throw his guitar down, shake his head with disgust and turn his back on me. Steven Tyler kicked over his mike stand and headed off stage...the whole while I'm being booed by the audience. This happens over and over...I am SO BAD! It is fun though. My goal for the New Year is to make it through a whole song!

I hope 2009 is a happy, healthy, creative & prosperous New Year for you all!

Adorable card! Glad to hear that you have been enjoying your holiday season with some relaxing activities...I tried Guitar Hero in Best Buy and felt pathetic. Sounds like fun...Good luck!

Hi Lynn!! OMGosh!!! I've read all the Sookie books too! Read them recently right after my Twilight adventure. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them both! And True Blood too. It's a bit "different" but it's good. I can't wait for the new season to start. And on the Sookie books...those aren't over either. I believe the new one will be released in May or near there. So far, for Sookie...I'm Team Eric and my BFF is Team Bill. For Twilight, I'm Team Edward and she's Team Jacob. Lots of conflict over here, huh??? lol...your NYs card is awesome. I love the acetate. Keep rockin' it girl. You'll have that song in no time!!
