Happy New Year!

Have not been feeling well for the past few days...just after my dear hubby was sick for Christmas and what better pastime than browsing Pinterest to lift my spirits. I came upon such a cute card designed by Joanne James of the UK and I just had to make a couple of my very own!

Luckily, I had all of the elements on hand, the SU daffodil delight ribbon is retired from a few years ago, but I love it so very much that I decided to keep some in my retired ribbon box.

Not sure what she used for the windowsill, but I had some silver washi tape, also SU retired and placed that on a piece of whisper white card stock for the windowsill.

The flowers were made with a retired SU mini floral punch. The background brick embossing folder is current SU and can be found in the Annual Catalog. The tiny heart is from the owl punch. I thought it was the perfect size and shape. The lettering is from a SU rotary wheel stamp that I still have, which is also retired.

So, now you know, I enjoy keeping retired Stampin' Up! items that I know I will use again and for this little pretty, I am very happy that I did just that.

Well, today I am feeling somewhat better. We are probably staying home tonight as we do not like to go out on New Year's Eve...too much nonsense. However, we are invited to a Retirement Party tomorrow afternoon, so I do need to rest up and be well and strong to attend.

Hope that you all enjoy a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous and Blessed New Year!

Happy Stampin' Adventures...

Last night I attended my yearly team Christmas Party. Most of us participated in a gift exchange which I so enjoyed very much! We had make n takes, all kinds of delicious food...appetizers, desserts, drinks, etc.

The banner showcased in the above photo is part of the gift that I put together. I love making these!
There are a few others in  process currently and some of my favorite family members and friends will be receiving one from me!

Well...I am off now to get busy in my studio...I also have a Craft Fair for which I am participating and  need to make a few things to sell there along with some retired Stampin' Up! stuff!

Enjoy you crafting adventures!

Love...
