Smiling while Stamping: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!!  Happy New Year!  2016 was a good year for me, mostly positive with a couple of road bumps along the way, but we need that from time to time!  I didn't get as much crafty time this year as I would like, my blog post were very sporadic which I'm hoping to change for the coming year! Another thing I would like to work on for 2017, like most of you, I have a ton of great stuff that doesn't get near the loving it deserves!  So, if you regularly stop by, you may be seeing more oldies but goodies!  

Which brings me to my card!  I purchased this Pyrotechnics set from The Ton quite some time back and this is the first time it has seen some lovin'!  Not good!  I LOVE fireworks and thought it was so appropriate for a New Years card!  I used my Brutus Monroe Spring Sparkle embossing powder, my Little B dies for the celebrate some gold paper and dew drops to finish off the card!
This is the prize I have up for grabs!  You have until Friday, January 6th, noon central time to leave me a comment!  I will draw a winner and post no later than Saturday January 7th.
I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by today!


The awesome list of participants!

  6. Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and artistry; you inspire me so much. My crafting goal for 2017 is to try to create at least once a week. Doesn't seem like a lot but balancing work, my family, and taking care of my mom leaves little time for anything else but crafting freshens my soul so it's important.
