Happy New Year

Our new occasions catalog is here and I've been having fun playing with all the new products.  One of the first things I tried when box of new supplies arrived was the water color pencils.  I joined in a swap with some demonstrator friends and this was the card I created to share with them that feature our new water color pencils.

This card was created with one of our newest stamp sets called Swan Lake.  I love the floral border stamp that provided me a beautiful area to color with my new water color pencils but also a perfect place to display one of our new embellishments called sprinkles.  Its hard to tell from the photo but when you move this card the border above and below the swans really sparkle.

This card could be used for a wedding but I chose to make it as a friendship card.  As I see these swans side by side I am reminded of all of those I was blessed to share this years journey with.  I am blessed with so many people who stood by my side through the peaks and valleys I encountered this year.

I really love the start of a New Year.  I usually spend a lot of time reflecting on things I'd like to change and setting goals to accomplish as the new year begins.   

As I move forward to the start of a new year I am excited for all that it will hold and am especially grateful for all that God will bring into my life and for His promise to be with me through all I will encounter.

No matter where you are at this moment know that I am thinking of you and praying a blessing over you as we move forward into new adventures in 2017.

Happy New Year!
