This Card was made by using Mojo Monday 222.
Their first template of the New Year.

I used paper from Bazzill Basics "Bouquet", also paper from "Forever in Time" Glitter double sided Card Stock, and Lavender and Blue Reflections Card Stock. I used Versa Magic "Purple Hydrangea" Chalk ink around the edges of the card and on the stamp "believe" from Close to My Heart "The Simple Things".  I also used my Creative Memories flower embellishments and my paper distresser on all of the paper. I like the touch of yellow added with thread and my sewing machine.  I hand cut out the Cuttle Bug embossed flourish. I also used copics Y15 to colour some little white brads yellow, I think that is my favourite thing about copics, you can colour almost everything to match anything.  I also added a medium size yellow brad to the Creative Memories flowers and the newly painted yellow brads to the little purple flowers .

On another note I hope every one had a safe and Happy New Year. We had a great time with family and friends during the Christmas week, and a very quiet New Year......just the way I like it.  My daughter has been helping me today stamp all of my new stamps that I have collected over the last couple of  months.  Thanks Punkin Pie! Once they are stamped on regular photo copy paper (3 times), it then goes into my binder. I give 2 of my friends a copy as well, and vise versa, that way if any one of us is looking for a stamp for a specific occasion, we can look through the binders and "borrow" the stamp set.  This is a great way to pool our resources, since we love to scrap together. We also use this sharing method with a lot of the other scrapbook supplies. I hope this little tid-bit is something that you and your friends can use if you don't already.

Thanks for stopping by,
Until next time,


As this New Year starts,
 an Angel will still be Missed.
This Angel is celebrating another Birthday in Heaven. 
 She will
Always be Missed,
Always be Loved,
and will
Always be Remembered.

The best and most BEAUTIFUL THINGS
in this world cannot be SEEN or even heard,
but must be FELT with the HEART.
