Happy New Year!

     Here is wishing you a happy, healthy New Year!  We were puppy sitting for our DS and DIL, so that they could spend some time with friends.  They will be back by noon, and I will start making my traditional sauerkraut and pork dinner.  It is suppose to bring good luck for the coming year.  We also get to enjoy a day of Mummer's Parade, from Philly!  


     As I waited for the ball to drop, last evening, I decided to play a bit in the stamp room.  I created this card to fit the current sketch, # 153, over on the OWH, Stars and Stamps Blog.


     I used a digital image that I collected ages ago from Glitterbabe.  The card stocks are Pure Luxury, from Gina K. Designs.  The designer paper is a 1/4 sheet that I had chopped while clearing out some 12x12 papers.  The ribbon was from my snippets box, and the hearts are from K&Co's Smitten collection from years ago.  Hence, I would also like to enter this over at a new challenge site I found called Clear It Out Challenge.  The new theme is "Warm and Fuzzy" I think I will enjoy these challenges, for sure!

     Over the years, I have been collection so many cute digis.  I have decided to start printing them out, getting them colored, and using them, instead of just letting them clog up the computer.  Have a wonderful start to your 2013, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Happy New Year, Mary Anne! That's one cute puppy card, way to go on clearing out some of the old! I, too, should start to use all the digis I've collected over the past couple of years. Maybe there's a resolution.....hmmmm... :-)

This is just precious! I too uncluttered my computer... I print a master sheet of the digis and simply copy them when I want them! So much easier than searching for them on my computer! Have a Happy New Year GF!
